We started Maker Monday, this year after a long hiatus. Our spontaneous steadfast itinerary in the spirit of making included: Open Source Laser cutting, LCD Dim Sum Labs badge (part of our on-going wearable technology), MPD rocket and routing the remaining half of the lights in the labs with wifi-enabled RGB LEDs.
Notable traveling visitor Sedev Cakir from Istanbul, Turkey was on-hand to share some of her interests in technologies. Similarities led to an impromptu demo showcasing the Kinect motion sensorâ€“with participants engaged. She helped solder electronic circuits for the LED board.
We also had Alan visiting bringing along his Google Cardboard that allows your phone to be transformed into a Virtual Reality headset and also enables FPV control.
David LanzendÃ¶rfer took the day to prepare components for his MPD rocket thrusterâ€“which he is eagerly assembling at the labs and will be testing it at another location.
We thank all our participants. Dim Sum Labs, looks forward to an exceptional year of Making and beyond!
Starts 7:00pm every Monday. Please drop by anytime!
