Do you want to have flashy clothing or accessories that blink and pulse with your life? Maybe some costume for a party or club attire? We’ve got a class for you, coming up on Nov 6!
We will make a basic wearable LED enhanced accessory, either for your hair, a corsage or a wrist band. We will also work on adding LEDs to clothing and fabric and look at how to integrate sensors into the effect.
Our Arduino class is back on October 22nd. Learn to program an Arduino and interact with the physical world! In this class, we’ll cover an introduction to Arduino and learn how to manipulate outputs based on sensor inputs. All students will receive a basic electronics starter kit, which contains a starter pack of electronics components and sensors, including a breadboard, wires, light sensor, tilt sensor, LEDs, a motor, and more. Students will also receive an Arduino UNO.
No previous electronics experience necessary. Tickets are available via Eventbrite. This class usually sells out, so get your tickets ASAP!
7:30 to ? (oh yeah, QUESTION MARK!)
We’ll have snacks and some alcohol but in general B.Y.O.B.
Come join us as our regular Craft Night is transformed into an Open to the Public Dance Party / Spooky Board Game Party / Werewolf Bar Mitzvah / NYC Resistor Halloween Party!
There will be crazy costumes! There will be food! There will be dancing! Not into dancing? Well, there will also be spooky inspired board games! Hate board games and dancing and food? WHO ARE YOU AND DO YOU NEED A HUG?
We’ll bring the party, food, a caldron o’ booze, music, and board games. You just bring the beer and your bad-ass self. Costumes are encouraged, but not required, though if you are looking for inspiration on an easy costume, the internet has got you covered. (http://

OMG, it’s almost Halloween. What better time for a pumpkin-hacking Make-Along?
BYOP (Bring Your Own Pumpkin) and we’ll help you trick it out with LEDs, some fancy carving techniques like using dremels and maybe even our laser. If you can think of it we can help you make it! Grab a ticket and we’ll see you on Oct 16.
Here’s the description of the talk from MAKE’s site:
The emerging field of soft robotics has experimentation at its heart. Roboticists from Super-Releaser will highlight how hands-on experience in materials and fabrication informs their research. Designing flexible things takes flexible thinking and the rapid hacking makers know so well.
DEBATES tonight. yep. we’ll be screening them. if you want to work on a noisy project or chat the chatty chat the back room will be open, but the front room will be booming with the debate. come hang out if you want. byob, snacks, tissues.
Want to make your own balloons? Our very own Kari Love will be leading an Intro to Inflatables course on September 24th!
Learn about DIY flat-patterned inflatables from an intro lecture to design constraint basics, material choices, fabrication techniques, leak rates vs flow, etc. Then follow-up with hands-on experimentation making your own heat-sealed mylar balloons.
We’re hosting the good folks of CraftJam for a class on Sunday, September 25th. Make your own laptop or tablet case!
