Look what we can do with solder mask! Yay.
Flame kit is an interactive piece we've been working on. The individual
flame has an ATtiny13
running some basic detection and LED pulsing
firmware. All parts are through hole and the kit goes together in 5-10
minutes. We will show you how to solder! We plan to have 9 or so solder
stations setup at our Maker Faire booth. A great, quick kit for beginners. The kits are free but
we are accepting a suggested $5 donation that will go to a couple local
Austin non-profits including the Angleheart Children's Shelter
and The Robot Group
. We've got magnets and a large metal wall to add your flame to the collective. It's going to be pretty epileptic
For those of you who have a bit of soldering experience, and want to learn more, we will also have instructors and Simon SMD soldering kits
on hand ($20 donation). Yes, you really can solder SMD! It's actually quite easy, no special tools required. We'll show you how
on the LED Coffee Table
- it's a ton of fun
Four players battle at Pong or Tron. We'll bring the chairs, you'd better bring your skillz.
I dunno if anyone remembers, but we gave away
some tickets last May for Maker Faire
, San Mateo. Make has been really cool and sent us a few extra tickets for Austin! We'd like to
use them, but we don't really have any friends. So if you'd like one of
these general admission, one day tickets, we'd want you to have them!
If you buy one of our snazzy SparkFun t-Shirts, pint glasses, or hoodies
, we'll throw in a Maker Faire ticket. If you need two tickets, you'd better buy a pint glass
for your buddy.
Please stop by our booth! We'll have our soldering workshop setup along with fun things to play with including Tron
, and a handful of new and upcoming products (think Texas sized belt buckles). We can't wait to checkout what Maker Faire has this time around!
