Call for Raptor hands! Anyone with a 3D printer, we need your help to get as many hands printed at 135% and delivered to Baltimore by May 1st. We're holding a workshop at the KID Museum in Bethesda, MD where US and Canadian Scouts will be assembling the hands. The goal of the May 2nd workshop is to train the visiting Canadian scouts how to assemble the hands so they can train other Canadian scouts how to recreate this project when they go back home. 

We also need 50 hands for a retreat on June 13th. At this event we'll be training Baltimore Scouts who are going to the World Jamboree in Japan this summer, so that they can take this project to our sister city to create a spin off group to recreate our efforts in Kawasaki.

Your help last time was able to fit hundreds of hands to kids born without hands locally, and as far away as Barcelona. We put notes in each hand, and the kids loved them. 

Here is the link to the Raptor files:

And here is the address to mail them:
1260 Stevens Avenue
Baltimore, MD 21227

If you don't have a 3D printer yet, you can donate money too. $30 covers the cost for the printing and the hardware to give a prosthetic hand to a child born without one. Stay tuned for a donation link. #3dprinting

Tinkerine just donated a Ditto Pro to the Vancouver Hack Space - just in time for our reopening! This is very exciting news after several months of being shut down while we uprooted and moved. I dare say it's the first machine up and running at the new location. Thank you +Tinkerine!

LEDs and soldering pentagons! Totally
 
Do you love LEDs? Sure, we all do!

Join me and +Amy Hurst on October 25th for a Blinkinlabs BlinkyTile beta testing workshop!

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/blinkytile-beta-testing-workshop-tickets-13674313239

BlinkyTile is a system of LED lights on pentagonal tiles for creating dynamic light sculptures in (almost) any shape you can imagine. Currently on its way to finishing a successful Kickstarter campaign, we’re looking for beta-testers to give us feedback on the assembly and programming of the BlinkyTile to help refine the final version that backers will receive.

In this 3 hour workshop, participants will prepare and assemble a 14-tile kit to make a dodecahedron lamp like the one seen above. Or, make a shape of your own choosing!

After soldering the boards into a sculpture, we’ll solder on the controller board and test everything out. Next, we’ll cover how to program your BlinkyTile sculpture using the Arduino programming environment.

Time permitting, we may be able to cover more advanced topics such as controlling your BlinkyTile sculpture via your computer using Processing.

No prior soldering experience is needed!

For each purchased workshop seat, we will provide:
* 14-tile kits
* BlinkyTile controller board
* 6-foot USB micro cable
* Solder and the use of a soldering station for assembly
* Stranded wire for attaching the controller board to the finished sculpture

Participants must bring:
* A laptop with the most recent Arduino (http://arduino.cc/) programming environment installed
* [Optional] A dedicated power supply (e.g. 5V phone wall adapter or a 5V USB battery pack)

Don’t forget, October 25th is the night of the Patterson Park Lantern Parade (http://www.creativealliance.org/events/2014/2014-great-halloween-lantern-parade-festival-kaleidoscope).
We think your BlinkyTile sculptures would make an amazing addition!
