Brevard Tech Meetups

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

 

I am planning on getting a Brevard Tech Group monthly meetup started with the first meetup planned for early in February.

My idea is to not limit the topics, but to keep it open for discussion and exploration of hardware and software.

Right now, I have one meeting place on New Haven that we can certainly use, but it could be too small depending on the number of people who attend.

There also is the possibility of using FIT's lab as well.

For the first meetup, I am hoping to get the presenter from familab who has been doing the introduction to arduino and the arduino courses if this is possible.

Does anyone have any ideas or want to help?

 

Pocket Piano - Synth Kit

I was cruising the MakerShed (Make Magazine's store) and I saw this really cool kit. You can make your own synthesizer with 2 full octaves of keys. Think about it.

You also need an Arduino (direct link) to use this at all, which is useful for so many other things.

Open Source Hardware - Makerbot, Arduino

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

If you pay attention to hardware at all, you'll have seen people building interesting tools for fun or profit with openly designed, hackable devices such as Makerbot and Arduino.

We also see lots of popular media featuring open hardware, like this episode of WebNation from the Canadian Discovery Channel, filmed at a hackerspace in Toronto.

In 2008, Chris Jones put together a charity project which collects unused computers, installs free software, and trains a needy family or organization in the care and use. Caring Compy will soon have non-profit status, and we couldn't be more proud of our Florida Creatives membership.

BarCamp Orlando #3

Location

Wall Street Plaza
18 Wall Street Plaza Slingapour's, One-Eyed Jack's, Gibson Guitar Center
Orlando, FL 32801
Apr 18 2009 10:00a - 6:00p

BarCampOrlando is back and is going to be bigger and better than ever. The Orlando Scene has quickly proven it can put on one of the premier BarCamp events in the US, and quite possibly the world. BarCampOrlando is a 1 day 'unconference' offering all attendees the opportunity to share their knowledge by giving short talks on ANY subject. This year we will have 3 different rooms to showcase the participants and sessions of different lengths to accommodate more content then you can shake your marshmallow stick at. BarCamp by it's nature has no schedule, no keynote speaker, and no main topic of conversation - the participants decide the who, what, how, why and when - we just pick the where! Please register for the event so we can plan accordingly! P.S. BarCamp may still be looking for sponsors - any amount will be accepted. We have a "fill in the blank" sponsorship available for those who can't swing $100 or $300, as much as they might like to.

Wii2Midi

WiiToMidi allows you to convert signals from a Nintendo Wii controller to MIDI signals. It is a Cocoa application for Mac OS X and uses the DarwiinRemote WiiRemote framework to decode Wii controller signals. It also supports the Nunchuk controller.

I was going to stop with the first video, but this next guy's video was just too funny. All tutorials should be like this, instead of all these YouTube videos with a silent pair of hands. I want to buy this guy a beer.
