Lorin, our electronics warden, is presenting a solder-thon this weekend!

The hive 13 solder-thon will be this Sunday November 22nd, from 1pm-6pm at the Hive 13 hackerspace.

Come on down to the rootinest-tootinest solder wranglin' rodeo in the O-H-I-O! Old hands and greenhorns welcome. Bring something you've been meaning to solder, mend, or mangle. Get expert advice from solder slinger Lorin Parker (he'd even teach you about scopes and test gear for a smile). Learn and practice assembly, cable making, through hole soldering, hot air rework, SMD, and hang out with some cheesy movies and light ein wenig Licht Lötmusik.

Free for all members. Non-members welcome with donation to Hive13 (limited seating).


New Sidewalk

New Sidewalk

Hello everyone! Our new sidewalk is (mostly) finished! Just a few notes to consider with the new sidewalk:

  • The curb is a bit higher than our old one, so be careful when stepping up over it.
  • The sidewalk was made about a foot wider, so be careful with oncoming traffic.
  • During the spring they will plant trees in front of our building, with one smack dab in front of our door. This will make it easier for prospective members to find the space (look for the trees) but hard for people to find the door.

That's all I have for now, thanks for reading!

By jim on

Join us this Tuesday, Oct. 13, after a quick 7:30 pm business meeting, when local Minecraft guru and YouTube phenom "Ender quartz", a.k.a. Stephen Walsh (14-year-old son of proud member/dad Brad) shares his Minecraft command block programming techniques.

Minecraft command blocks allow you to build code in a sandbox to change the physics of the game, add lightning swords, flying saucers, even give yourself X-ray vision features to see your enemies behind walls. A follow-up, in-depth future class is possible given enough interest after this talk. Ender quartz YouTube channel link

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and all those interested are welcome to come see these game-changing Mincraft hacks on Tuesday, October 13, after the 7:30pm business meeting. Find Us

Hive13 PTDR Garners Eight Editor's Choice Blue Ribbons at World Maker Faire - New York 2015

By jim on

altThe Hive13 team (consisting of Ian, Ryan, Franklin, Dustin, Katie, Kevin, and Jim) brought our version of Power Tool Drag Racing to the World Maker Faire - New York 2015 and garnered eight prestigious MAKE Magazine Editor's Choice blue ribbons for the effort.

This first-time appearance at WMF-NY 2015 was our fourth racing event of the year and it culminated our 2015 season. This season's preceding race events were held at Maker Faires in Detroit, Cincinnati, and Louisville earlier in the summer and fall. New York was a great venue featuring both bleacher and sky-box seating for the overflow crowds that watched a steady stream of general public match races from open to close on both days of beautiful weather. Here's a YouTube link showing a typical race.

We've now done eleven events in our three seasons, each one better than the last and no one's gotten hurt. Thanks to one and all that have made it happen. Stay tuned for details on the planned improvements for an even bigger and better season next year.
