(Boulder) Hack Night - Wearables Workshop
Free Wearables Workshop!
Curious about wearables or getting started with hardware? In this workshop, learn the basics of electronics while making a wearables project.
40 people will get a free SparkFun ProtoSnap - LilyTwinkle to keep and can continue to hack on even after the workshop is done. (Thank you SparkFun for donating the kits! Special thanks for Amanda Clark at SFE for setting up the sponsorship and Pete for the rest of the sponsored kits!) This kit comes with a LilyTwinkle, that has an ATtiny microcontroller preprogrammed to blink on and off.
Please bring something you would like to sew on! Products, in the LilyPad line, are washable (Make sure to take the battery out first), so feel free to bring in a dress or t-shirt you want to add LEDs too.
Few project examples:
I will be teaching how to work with conductive thread, open source hardware (LilyPad), and the basics of electronics. By the end of the workshop you will have a finish project of your own!
Also, we will go over how you can reprogram the LilyTwinkle to blink the way you want it.
Due to a limited number of free kits, please only sign up if you can come. That way we make sure all kits are used.
All the spots taken now, but please join the waitlist if you are interested. That way we know how many people are interested in these type of events. Also, there could be spots that open up. Thanks!
Hack night is a new type of event for WWC. Each hack night will bring in a new technology to learn and have fun with. Some of the hack nights will also be mini hackathons. If you know of any companies who would be interested in mini hackathons or showing off/teaching their products, please message Pamela!
Teachers/helpers for this workshop are Pamela Cortez, Amanda Clark, Angela Sheehan, and Louisa Barrett.
