Mendelson Pilgrimage – Saturday August 22

August 19th, 2009 5 comments

Many of our members, including myself, have not been to Mendelsons before.  Mendelsons is a surplus store that concentrates on electronic parts.

The apparently have everything from brass gears to industrial machinery to the inserts for cash registers.

Mendelsons however is located up in Dayton so we decided to put together a group trip.  We will be meeting at the hackerspace building at 9:00 am on Saturday, August 22, 2009.

There is talk about possibly stopping at the IKEA store to pick up people that live north of Cincinnati.  If we do so we will be stopping there at 10:00 am.

*Update* We will be stopping at the Ikea parking lot to pick up people.  If you want to meet there, please be there by 10:00 am.

Hive13 Sketchduino Demo

August 19th, 2009 No comments

Every week we get together to share project progress and deal with the business matters for the space.  Every so often a special guest shows up to demo something really cool that they have been working on.  That happened at the last meeting when Joe stopped by to show off his Sketchduino. He has taken an Etch-a-Sketch and paired it with an Arduino and a laptop to draw any image.  He gave a demo using one of our logos.  Check out the YouTube video of the demo!

Thanks Joe!  I can’t wait for the Party on the 29th!

This week we will be finalizing plans for our trip to Mendelson this coming weekend, and hearing status updates on various projects, including Dave’s progress with the MakerBot.

The space will be open for people to come on down and hang out with us for the meeting.  If you want to stop on by, please park out on the street.  If there is nobody out front then walk around back to the loading dock, the door should be open.  Walk in the back door, take the first door on your right and we are the double doors on the end.

As always the meeting will be happening at the Anchor Building and the meeting agenda is on our wiki: August 18, 2009 feel free to update the agenda.
