Back by popular demand: DJ Smokey and this year he’s joined by Dr Claw to spin a very special vinyl set with Electro, Techo, and Industrial Vibes. Visual effects team Interlock Ness Monster is also returning, so get ready for a fresh and spooky set of hand-mixed beats and laser-heavy visuals!

Intro to Internet of Things: Build a Subway Countdown Clock is taking place at NYC Resistor on Sat, October 26th. Tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Join us at NYC Resistor to build a personalized subway countdown clock. This class will introduce the basics of Arduino, electronics, and other important concepts you’ll need to join in on the Internet of Things (IoT). We’ll use a WiFI connected Arduino microcontroller to pull down real time subway data and display it to a LCD/LED character display. Never be late for a subway again**!

NYC Resistor will be participating in Gowanus Open Studios 2019 on October 19th & 20th from 12 pm to 6 pm each day.

Come by our space to see projects made by NYC Resistor members and public craft night attendees. We want to show examples of the creative projects that our makerspace tools and resources help bring to life.

This event will also be a good opportunity to learn about our space and ways we can help you explore your own creativity. Members will be on hand to give tours and talk about the classes, activities and resources we offer regularly throughout the year.

Call for makers: If you’ve made stuff at Resistor and you are interested in sharing to represent our community, send an email to contact@nycresistor.com

Gowanus Open Studios is the annual event where 400+ artists in the Gowanus area open their doors to share their creative spaces and art with the general public. Wander around the neighborhood to see a wide variety of local art and to chat with artists about their work.

Trumpcare® IUD Launch

700 Trumpcare® intrauterine devices (IUD) were created as an art installation. The exclusive product launch is at SSHH, 516 6th St. NYC on Friday 13th from 6p -9p. Afterparty: YES. Viewings will be available Saturday September 14th and Sunday September 15th from 2p-7p.

Come have a drink with us and share the anxiety.

An IUD is wrapped in copper and inserted by a doctor into a uterus.  It works by releasing copper ions into the cervix which creates a hostile environment for sperm. IUDs are more than 99% effective as a form of birth control.

700 IUDs were designed in Rhino, high-resolution 3D printed in China with SLA plastic, and hand-wound with copper. Thanks to all the supporters who came out to NYC Resistor on multiple occasions to hand-wind IUDs.

We got a little press! We love Dezeen and we’re honored to be included!
