20121224145529Our $30 Arduino “beginners kit” for Arduino U nights sold well last week!  We have 10 6 3 kits remaining, each containing 1 non genuine Chinese Arduino “clone” and a selection of carefully selected basic electronic parts in a bespoke laser cut box.  These will be sold “first come, first served”.

One member has a pile of 32×16 LED Dot Matrix Displays on the way.  We have got one running and plan to hack and play with it using a modified library from Freetronics.  Doug can also “show and tell” his prototype ultrasonic distance measuring project, if anybody is interested in using numeric  keypads, ultrasonic sensors or 16×2 LCD screens.  Of course, you are welcome to bring in your own project to boast, explain or seek assistance.

Hack the Festival finished up last Friday with 15 teams presenting their diverse and innovative digital artworks at Australia’s first art hack. All teams produced incredible results, with team Artifactory (Skot McDonald, Tim Gilchrist, Meg Travers, Craig Wale, Morgan Strong) taking out the $5000 winning prize awarded for their artwork Sonic BollART, which reimagines the urban bollard as interactive community infrastructure with a theremin, reactive LEDs and wifi dead drop music share point. Sonic BollART will be on display at Spacecubed this week. ‪#‎hackperthfest‬.BollART from above
