Learn How to 3D Print Workshop

ze printas

3D printing has started to become the talk of the town; so why not throw a workshop and teach others how to use it for their own personal projects? After all, we have 2 of them and have spawned about 18 of these self replicating machines with many other prototypes, trinkets, gadgets, and gizmos that […]

Arduino Class at Communikey Festival

On Friday April 27, Solid State Depot teamed up with SparkFun and the CU Hackerspace Club to offer an Intro to Arduino class as part of the Communikey Festival. The class was held at the CU-Boulder campus in the ATLAS building. About 15 students attended. Dave from SparkFun led the instruction and did a wonderful […]

Arduino Workshops

Saturday March 17 from 11 am – 2 pm we will be having an Arduino workshop. It will be a combination of “learn basic Arduino” and “train the teachers”. Joel is bringing several Protosnaps for the basic Arduino instruction, cost details forthcoming. March 24 or 31 we are planning for a more advanced Arduino workshop, […]

Our First Basic Arduino Workshop

On Saturday we held our first workshop on the popular open-source electronics prototyping platform, the Arduino. We plan to offer this intro workshop again along with some more advanced Arduino workshops as well in 2012. While we certainly had a few bumps – fresh snow, one of our instructors unable to attend, a late start […]

During February I was searching for ways to create more permanent arduino based solutions when I stumbled upon a neat kit from a Hackerspace out in Provo Utah named The Transistor. I contacted them before I purchased […]

Wearable LEDs Update

Just a quick note on a couple of our wearable technology (WT) projects: Liz’s raincoat and John’s top hat. Raincoat: This was Liz’s first real WT project taken to completion, and there was definitely some “pound to fit, paint to match” involved in order to meet her goal of having it ready in time to […]

eTextiles Workshop

Reposted from Hackerspace member Liz’s blog The Path Not Taken When I was a senior in high school I had plans to be a fashion designer. I earned some college credit in fashion attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago one summer. I designed and made some of the clothes I wore. I […]
