Intro to PCB Design is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Jul 27. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

This class is a basic introduction to creating PCBs using Autodesk’s Eagle software. Students will learn how to use Eagle to go from a breadboard to a PCB design file that is ready to be sent out for manufacturing. This allows you to take your DIY electronics projects off of protoboards and to the next level. In this course, students will have the opportunity to select one of three pre-defined breadboard circuits to work from in designing their circuit board. By the end of the course students should feel comfortable designing boards for their own custom circuits.Students must bring a laptop computer with a free version of Eagle pre-installed. Eagle can be downloaded here:https://www.autodesk.com/products/eagle/free-download

July 4th Craft Night 2019

It might be a holiday, but we are open for the 4th of July at our usual time.

Man in black shirt and large glasses, sits centre frame with a cone of aluminium foil on the table in front of him. He lights a fuse at the top of the cone with a match in his right hand. It explodes in a bright flash and puff of smoke filling the screen briefly. The smoke clears to reveal the man having been blown back, his face covered in soot.

Sadly, there will not be any pyrotechnics, but come by for some good old fashioned craft night fun.

Watercolour – An Experimentation is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Jul 13. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

I’ve been doing watercolours since I was a little child. Creating great images is as much about technical understanding as it is about developing a way of seeing, a way of being. I usually do watercolours on the streets, or at events, with a sketch book and a portable kit. I do it because I deeply love to do it.

Designing Feminist Interfaces: Smart Assistant Skill Building is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, Jul 6. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Technology is often described as ‘disruptive’, while it serves to perpetuate existing power structures. It’s not an accident, for instance, that our technologies that function effectively as “caregivers” or “secretaries” are designed to have female voices. What does it mean to imagine an alternative, feminist voice interface? Can we hack voice interfaces to be more feminist?
