August 3-4-5 is EAGLE weekend!

Looking to meet likeminded electronics hobbyists and learn more about EAGLE PCB design software? Join our free meetup Friday August 3! It’ll be a celebration kicking off our weekend classes taught by our special guest, Autodesk’s Matt Berggren.

Refreshments kindly provided by Autodesk. RSVP is optional, but helps us better estimate the refreshments to provide.

Intro class:

We’ll even show you where you can go to have your boards made.

Advanced class: 

Are you an electronics hobbyist looking to create a product? Leap from newcomer to pro with this all-day class on designing your own schematics and printed circuit boards with Autodesk EAGLE. Lunch included.

Come check out the Looking Glass lightfield + volumetric display at the Interactive Show on Saturday:

The Looking Glass is a new class of genuinely three-dimensional display that combines the benefits of volumetric and lightfield displays into a single system. Groups of people can now see and reach into the holographic worlds that live inside the glass walls of a Looking Glass, without VR or AR headgear. Designed for 3D creators (Maya, Cinema4D, ZBrush, Unity, Tinkercad, Blender…), the Looking Glass is a place for 3D digital creations of all types to live in the real world. The Looking Glass is launching Summer 2018.

Looking Glass Factory is a team of inventors, engineers, game devs, and artists – based in Brooklyn and Hong Kong – chasing the dream of the hologram. Specifically, the cinema dream of the hologram we were all promised in Star Wars, Iron Man, and Minority Report. Where groups of people can interact with floating 3D worlds. Since the founding of the company in 2014, Looking Glass Factory has launched a suite of products including volumetric prints, the L3D Cube, Volume, HoloPlayer One, and now coming this summer, the Looking Glass.
