Given the long hiatus of Arduino U over the Summer, it will be running again this week before settling back into the usual 2 week pattern.Pile-o-duino

Our Arduino “beginners kit” for Arduino U nights sold well last week!  We have 10 6 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”.

A number of folk have ongoing projects mentioned last week.  Some beginners are working through the contents of their just purchased kits.  Doug has an ultrasonic distance measuring project also involving a numeric pad and a 16×2 LCD screen running from three Arduino pins (with the help of a shift register and a helpful library).  Another member has some addressable LED panels to test and play with – and intentions for an interactive wall with hundreds of buttons and “6144 Dazzling LED’s in a giant square (About 2m Wide)”.

Please don’t forget to BRING YOUR LAPTOP if you want to get the most out of your visit.

$10 in the tin supports the existence of our geek-friendly makerspace.
