It’s time for us to start scheming our classes for next year, and I’m looking for ideas. What classes do you want to see from NYC Resistor in 2017?
Get a text message when your plants need watering!
There’s still room in our Internet of Dirt class this Saturday. We’ll talk about the Internet of Things as a general idea, what kinds of Internet-connected devices you might want to build, and how you can plan your own projects. You’ll learn how to connect your project to the Internet, send HTTP requests, and interact with sensors. We’ll set up a basic soil sensor and program it to message you when your plant needs watering!
There’s no Thursday Craft Night this week! Resistor will be closed for Thanksgiving.
Did you know we have a professional pop-up artist as one of our members? Shelby Arnold works along-side the legendary Robert Sabuda and this month she’ll teach you how to make things pop, spin, twist, all with the power of opening a piece of paper. Get your tickets from Eventbrite.
Make-Alongs are self-guided craft workshops where participants learn new skills, explore new materials, and make great things! We’ll see you on Sunday. 🙂
CryptoParty returns to NYC Resistor on November 19th, 2016 for a night of learning about your digital defense in the age of mass surveillance from Fort Meade and Madison Ave. Stop by
anytime between 3PM and 9:30PM and enjoy snacks and skills from a variety of online security practitioners and researchers. We’re hosting a full day mix of talks and hands-on-help.

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://
Come party like it’s 1886 and you died of some horrible ol’ timey disease! Ghosts, Ghouls, and Friends are all invited!
