TEDx Bozeman

Hey, look! Someone is setting up an independent TED conference for March 2012 in Bozeman. Looks exciting!

Arduino ♥'s ARM

As much as I love blog spam myself, I couldn't resist posting some of the latest details about the new Arduino ARM Board.

---- Ripped straight from the Arduino Blog ----
Arduino Due, a major breakthrough for Arduino because we’re launching an Arduino board with a 32bit Cortex-M3 ARM processor on it. We’re using the SAM3U processor from ATMEL running at 96MHz with 256Kb of Flash, 50Kb of Sram, 5 SPI buses, 2 I2C interfaces, 5 UARTS, 16 Analog Inputs at 12Bit resolution and much more.

Benefit BBQ for MEH (Help a Hackerspace out!)

If you like food and science, then attending the Montana Ethical Hackers (MEH) BBQ should be on your to-do list this Saturday @ 6:00pm in Helena.

----- Ripped from MEH Facebook Event Page ----
It's the Last MEH BBQ of the Summer! Super cheap steak thanks to Albertsons!
Robinson Park
6PM on the 17th (Second Saturday from now)

$10 a plate!

Come on down, buy a plate, take a chance at the punch wall($5 per punch)! Participate to win in trivia!

Yes my friends it is once again time for our biweekly Bozeman Makers mini-meet.

We are hosting biweekly mini meets for the Bozeman Makerspace. Come for festive discussions with fellow makers from around the Gallatin Valley. Beyond the typical ramblings about electronics, fire, and building cool stuff, we want to hear about your projects.

We would love to have everyone with interest attend!

For full details visit our Meetup page here!

So this is awesome -- mini-project

The lovely people at F11 Photography have given us a large box of disposable camera shells. It turns out the circuits inside of disposable camera shells are ideal for creating the high-voltage, low-current power required to build awesome Steampunk lights guaranteed to amaze your friends and enrage your enemies.

The Fabulous Logic Analyzer

So one of my current projects is a buffer circuit to work with the TFLA-01 software.

This is a software 8-channel Logic Analyzer with a sample rate of up to 1MHz, that works on any Linux or Windows computer that just happens to also have a DB-25 parallel port. (what? a PARALLEL PORT?). well anyway. I just designed a PCB and had it fabricated by Batchpcb.com and they sent along a duplicate board, so if anyone is interested to build one along with me, let me know and I can get the board to you.

Member Wiki is Alive!

The time is at hand to release the beast. The mediawiki based Bozeman MakerSpace : Member Wiki is ready for use. Feel free to make it your own. The basic point of a wiki is to allow you the member to post your ideas, images, schematics, links related to your projects. I've just setup the software and would like to know what you think.

Maker Saturday (Yeah, this Saturday!)

A festive day of hacking and building will take place this Saturday! Come join a group of makers getting together to build fun and interesting projects. Feel free to bring your own project to work on, or just come and have fun conversation with fellow makers from the Gallatin Valley.

Check our Calendar for details of all our upcoming events!

When: Saturday, August 27th, 2011 12:00 PM (recurring ever other week)
Where: A Members Garage!
2720 Harris Street Bozeman, MT
Bozeman, MT 59715

Squishy Circuits

So I found This Website the other day while searching for quick small projects. This site provides recipes for conductive and insulating "play dough" that you can build simple circuits out of. I'm going to cook up a couple batches tonight and start playing around with it, and I'll try to remember to bring some to the Saturday build so you can all take a look and play with it yourself.

ECE stock room website.

last night at the mini-meetup it seemed like a lot of you were interested in what the universities electrical engineering stock room had to offer for parts.

here's a link to their website
this shows the hours that they are open and a somewhat ancient inventory list showing most of what Brent has available, and generally what the price is going to be.

NOTE: they only accept cash or check, so be ready for that.
