This event will feature Liza Wood and myself, speaking about how we both turned our ideas into a reality. It is tonight, Friday at 7:00PM. For more info see here.
Liza will be bringing her experience from the gaming industry, and I will be bringing my experience from the maker movement / community. It will be interesting to compare and contrast these two areas. I’m excited to learn more about Liza’s history and share some of my stories from being a maker.
From the page:
Join Liza Wood and Erin Kennedy in conversation to learn about the paths they took to follow their dreams. Liza will speak with you about how to get into the video game industry as a developer. Erin will be speaking about turning a hobby project into a product and launching a crowdfunding campaign from her experience with the RoboBrrd Kit.
The organiser mentioned that we could sell some kits at the event. So we have worked diligently over the past week to prepare THREE LIME-GREEN RoboBrrd 3D *complete* kits. This includes the chassis, servos, AND electronics! Everything you need to get going.
They will be on sale for $119.95 … 10% off for tonight only, $105! Payable with cash, or via Square. w00t w00t!
Here is a photo of RoboBrrd helping solder RGB LEDs:
Excited for this event, hope to see you there if you’re local to the area. If not, plan an outing to visit the space sometime!
Interact with your Arduino in a quick, native and intuitive way using Buttons for Arduino!
=== Features ===
✔ Turn on and off your Arduino outputs with ease using the circle buttons
✔ Finely adjust the PWM outputs using the rotary sliders
✔ Customize button colours
✔ Full-screen mode (supported on 10.7+)
✔ No coding necessary
✔ API available
=== Works great for ===
:: Mood lighting – Have some LEDs connected to your Arduino for backlighting your computer desk, or similar? Easily control which LEDs are on and off to create a mixture of colours to suit your mood
:: Quick testing – Experiment with different outputs and combinations for your project, without touching a single line of code
:: Teaching students – Focus on the outputs and circuits without distractions. Demonstrate what happens when an output is on/off, and when the PWM changes from low to high
:: Live demos – Effectively communicate your project’s output ideas and concepts with others
:: And more! – Arduino projects are only limited by your imagination! Create the next best project, and use Buttons for Arduino to control it
To use Buttons for Arduino with your Arduino, install the ButtonsApp library from Buttons For Arduino’s support website and upload the included example sketch to your Arduino.
That’s it! Sit back, relax, and press some buttons!
