This workshop is for you !
We propose you to introduce you with Arduino : the board that you probably heard of but maybe never touched ;-)
We prepared for you a simple program made of :
   a) quick intro to the Arduino board functions / decryption of a few inspirational projects (from sound, to geometrical figure, wearables and more upon demand !)
   b) testing of the platform with basic applications (LED blink, etc)
   c) Q&A + sharing about potential personal projects you would be interested in building with (or without) peers
NB :  tea, beers, fruits and snacks provided
Rates :
 80RMB entrance fee
 If you do not have a board :
  a) 210RMB to buy the DFR Robot Arduino uno kit for beginners and go back home play with it for the rest of your life (You bet it!)
  b) Will also have 2 boards to lend you in case you don’t wanna get one (no worries:-))

Busy week for Helper and Assistive device group

August 13th, 2013 § 2 comments § permalink

Helper Sessions and Assistive Devices group is growing, another new member joined last week and is learning Arduino – from blinking LED to accelerometer! A big feature was added to the air-mouse – a virtual mouse button. The virtual button (gesture) is controlled by horizontal shaking as seen in the video. You can also see the mouse control needs a little fine tuning.

 Code is is on github. The Helper sessions are about sharing and learning anything. The Assistive devices are used as one focus for learning.

 If you would like to join in and just explore a big range of hardware including the new Xadow, a wearable Arduino, that has eight add on modules and a wearable frame to mount the modules inside, all just shipped directly from the SeeedStudio research lab – hence at least one minor issue to fix. There are also bluetooth devices, 3D printing, eyetracking and heaps of code to write, so come and join in Thursday night from 7:30, no experience required, just Xinchejian membership. 

 Group members also arrange to meet at other times, so make contact directly or via the mailing list to arrange! Several wiki updates including this new page for heaps more good stuff to work on!  More information is here and here.

Make something this summer!  

Processing workshop went well on the weekend, for those that missed it, well worth checking out when it comes up again. just a friendly reminder that if you havn’t paid your membership dues, please do so at the space. in August paul will be running a free Arduino workshop for members only make sure you have your own Arduino kit, buy through the space to support XinCheJian. also let us know what you think about the new design on the xinchejian website. A friendly reminder that XinCheJian is a hackerspace and not a co-working space/cheap office space, its fine to work on your projects but not cool to run your business out of the space, people involved in this are kindly being asked to move to a co-working facility, we can make introductions if you need them.

Just a reminder, if you would like to socialize or network please wait until after the presentations or go outside to give the presenters a chance to.. present.

Summary for Wednesday/本周三开放日综述
