Join us for an Electronics Workshop by Mitch Altman - Mitch Altman is a San Francisco-based hacker and inventor, best known for inventing TV-B-Gone remote controls, a keychain that turns off TVs in public places. Also Mitch is a co-founder of the Noisebridge hackerspace. Mitch travels all over the world sharing his knowledge and love of microcontrollers and soldering.
*What*: Electronics Workshop with Mitch Altman
*Where*: Alpha One Labs
*Who*: It is fun to make things at Alpha One Labs. Come join us. All skill levels. Everyone is welcome.
*Cost*: Instruction is Free! If you use any kits, reimbursment for kit price is requested ($10 to $20, depending on kit). There will be plenty of cool kits available to build, including:
TV-B-Gone (turn off TVs in public places!)
Brain Machine (Meditate, Hallucinate, and Trip Out!)
LEDcube (cool cube of blinky lights!)
Mignonette Game (play fun games!)
Trippy RGB Waves (interactive colored blinky lights!)
MiniPOV (more cool blinky lights!)
MintyBoost (charge your USB enabled gadgets!)
and for the more advanced:
microcontroller programmers (program all your AVR family chips!),
Arduino clones (make just about anything!), and more.
More info on most of most of these projects is available on Mitch’s website: http://www.CornfieldElectronics.com(click on the “maker faire” tab)
Some kits require AA batteries, we'll have some at the lab, however please bring a couple so we don't run out.
