    Would you recommend a place on NYC where I can get Arduino boards /kits. I am visiting  NY from Canada where online purchase wil cost us 1.5 more compare to what you pay there. So far I have found checked NYC computer store but there are some comments saying you must ne a student there.
     Thnak in advance

    Hi guys. I desperately need help to fix a power supply issue for two video headsets that will be used in an exhibition opening in 11 days time here in Manhattan. The headsets comprise a camera and video goggles. Each set transmits and receive the signal wirelessly from the opposite set. i.e the wearer can see the view of the other set if you get what I mean. I need to ensure a stable battery supply for 1-2 hours for each set for the opening. This is one element in whaT will be a pretty cool show.  Is there someone at Resistor who can help me with this.?
    Hope to hear back from someone

    I’m a tool and die maker by trade and a tinkerer by avocation. I’m interested in seeing what you are doing. I also have a lot of tools I no longer need and would be interested in donating them. Could I stop by some evening to check out what you do?

  • Erin Kelly

    would your group have any clue how to use a television converter box to access the Internet wirelessly on a free channel?

  • Tinkerer

    Hello! This is a really neat group. I would love to join or come to one of your events! Unfortunately it may be quite tricky and costly for me since I am a graduate student at a school in upstate New York. The city is 4.5 hours away for me. :(

    But I will try to make it to an event sometime this semester. Do you have any virtual events? Nonetheless, I’d love to chat with a group member to bounce ideas off of. 

    My graduate degree is basically a great excuse to tinker around with microcontrollers, inertial sensors, wireless communication and all kinds of other yummy candy. hehe I really enjoy electronics as well…

  • Dcny55

    I have a project I would like to build but have no understanding of how to go about it. I want to light a tube with rgb flex strip inside to shine out various holes in it and also the open end , so that it would shine out into a room. I would like it to be controlled by a remote. Can you advise me or point me to a site that might be able to help?
    Thank You!

    I would like to suggest you this post:
    http://www.open-electronics.org/arduino-full-memory-upgrade-to-the-last-atmel-toolchain-version/

    The actual Arduino compiler is not able to compile correctly sketches that require data areas larger than 64kWord. This version is an important enhancement in respect of the one included in the Arduino IDE and offers many advantages: – supports all the 8bit ATMEL microcontrollers families; – overcame the 128kB limit and compiles correctly sketches up to 256kB; – includes best and newest libraries; – outputs a most compact and efficient compiled object code.

    Hi I would like to get in touch with a Arduino developer for tonight and tomorrow. I am working on a project now and I will pay for the help you give me. Please get in touch with me if you are interested!

    Do you have a class C F.C.C. operator’s license?  You will be fined for wire fraud. The Federal Communications Commissionand Canadian Broadcasting Company in Canada is fining illegal broadcasters and producers and seizing the equipment.  Do you have any other telephony devices or transmitting equipment?  Did you make any broadcasts on December 25, 2011? Fugitives Charles Sandoval (aka Paauwee), Fitzgerald, Christmas,  Parvin,  Mashaud, Henry, and Able were found impersonating law enforcement officers at the Kokomo Sheriff Department.  They were using ham operating transmitters.  This was turned over to the FBI in D.C..  Indiana correctional institutions and others across the United States are racketeering against names in government such as, Paul Bateman and Sherman Funk.  Monica Bateman, Victoria Nevarez, Angela Omans, Monica Quick, and Anne Funk (Missouri) have been imprisoned over 14 years illegally.
    Greg Hendrickson, Utah, was found operating illegal ham units and impersonating an F.C.C. engineer.  Hendrickson was using the F.C.C. website email. His associate, Steven Whitehead, was found using ham systems and other transmitting devices. He was  involved in stalking and harassment of Hollywood actresses and workers going back to 1998.  Whitehead was difficult in paying female employees of ethnic background.  Steven Whitehead mentioned his father was retired from JPL and content writing computer software. Whitehead may be nvolde with Jet Propulsion Laboratory Amateur radio group which was cited for verious broadcast violations.  These men may be responsible for the September 11 crashes.
    The F.C.C. is investigating public utilities fraud and 2-3 way party calling wire fraud. The Hollywood Reporter in Los Angeles, California reported that Michael Powell  tried to pass a law that 2-3 way party calling is legal.  Everyone or anyone can listen to your phone calls. The F.C.C. website is fraud and is being treated as such.  Do not call the illegal broadcaster.

    Hi –

    I was wondering if anyone knew if there was a place in NYC where you could buy ultraviolet LEDs in bulk for cheap?

    Hello all.
    I’ve been working on different kinds of projects, from arduino shields to EEG units and home made robots.
    I was always concerned with the time required for manufacturing a PCB, which in my case was around 5 days, but recently I run into this page: protocheetah.com where they offer a machine capable of printing and assembling a PCB in one click.

    I wanted to know if anyone has had any experience with this type of machines and if anyone could recommend a similar solution that could help me prototype faster.

    I appreciate your help

    I’m currently working on an art project. My sculpture is a life size centaur.It is hollow inside. It has a monitor in the head and another in the chest. I’ve been using a cellphone for the head and a tablet for the chest. The problem is that the housing for the cellphone , which is an LG phone is too large for the head, although the screen size is perfect 2 inches wide x 1 7/8 inches long. The cellphone needs to be INSIDE the head. However, the head is curved and the phone in its housing is flat. This creates a space between the phone and the forehead when the phone is mounted inside the head. I have been looking for smaller units with varying degrees of success but the problem of the head curvature and the flat cellphone housing will remain regardless of size.
    The tablet has a similar difficulty. It is not flush with the chest. However, the problem is less severe because the curvature in the chest is less pronounced.
    Additionally, the phone and tablet either need to be removable in order to charge them or they need to be able to be connected to a power source with wiring that runs through the sculpture. There will be videos and sound in the head and chest which will play on the cellphone and the tablet respectively.
    Can the cellphone screen be separated from the cellphone housing and still be able to be charged and have access to its files? Perhaps there are small curved screens available which can be loaded with audiovisual files.
    Any help and advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
    Hope to hear from you.
    Thanks
    Sara

  • Jack

    Is the Arduino/Soldering 101 class that starts on August 25th a one-day class that is offered on multiple Sundays OR does this class require a commitment on multiple Sundays from August 25 to September 29?

    Thank you, Jack

  • Sambasiva Andaluri

    I signed up for the Arduino/Soldering class on 25th August at 1:00pm. The instructor did not showup for the class. There is no communication about any cancellation or if the instructor was delayed etc. Many of the people signed up have left after waiting for 30 mins. This is quite appalling given your reputation as a great hackerspace. I greatly appreciate if you issue a refund for the event.

  • Laura

    I am interested in taking the introductory laser course offered on Jan 4th (this Saturday) but due to the snowstorm forecast for the Tri-State area this weekend, I wonder if it will be cancelled. In any case, I might not be able to make it if public transportation will have limited availability this coming weekend. Could you please tell me if you offer this class again at a later date?

    Hello, I have a .ai file which I am exporting to.dxf file, it has many layers that need to stay in their exact placement when they are exported. I’ve exported this, but the new file has moved all of the line work over downwards and to the left of the art board. How can I keep this in the exact placement? Additionally, once I edit the .dxf file to correct the placement of the work, it will no longer save as a .dxf .. Help! Thank you! Helena
