E-origami: The Intersection of Craft and Technology
Monday, January 21, 2013 from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM (EST)
A workshop with SparkFun's Jeff Branson
By combining the ancient art of origami with emerging technology we can explore a whole new set of tools for both learning and teaching concepts in electronics. In this workshop we'll explore embedding controllers, building switches, conductive thread, and conductive ink as materials. We'll also look at the more traditional paper techniques as applied to the creation of more interactive crafts.
This workshop is designed for adults. If you would like to bring a young person please contact us and we'll help you make a decision about whether or not the class is right for him or her.
Today Jan 21: If you have already signed up for this workshop and have a question you must ask before the workshop begins, please text your question to 802-238-7768. Thanks!
