Are there any oscilloscopes available to use at the GRMakers facility?  Any chance someone in the GRMakers has a geigerconter?

something for the kids, and even some of us.
 
I love the littleBits kits - a super-cool and easy way to teach kids about electronics!

GRLUG/GRMakers Social TONIGHT 6PM @ The Warehouse, 112 Baldwin St., Jenison.

In order to make room for everyone please carpool when possible or park @ Ottawa Kent Insurance (7472 Main Street, Jenison).
Here’s a short list of projects for tonight:
3D Printing on the Makerbot, Rep Rap Build, Kinect Robot Project, RaspBerry Pi, Arduino, Sewing, Jewelry Making, Wrap designs for photobooth, plus whatever you bring to work on.
 
 
Amon Twentysix is doing WHO’S GAME IS IT ANYWAY!?
 
Tonight at GR Makers I will be creating a game from start to finish-BUT here's the twist: You are my graphics department, and I am at the will of your creations
 
Draw it on a napkin, use photoshop, take a photo of yourself doing the superman, draw something juvenile in MSPaint with your left hand-- Everything goes!!!
 
The goal is to have a working(ish) game at the end of the night from the collaborative efforts of everyone. The less you know how to make games, THE BETTER!!

I have a Maker Bot Thing-o-matic kit that I obtained for free.  I have it almost finished but I'm at a point where I could use some guidance in finishing of putting it together and getting this thing up and running.  Is this a place I can come to find that assistance?  Is anyone willing to help? How may I get involved with this community?

Sweet! I'll try to see what I can work out! As far as my project goes... No worry's. As long as I can start getting involved in a community of other makers I know it will get worked out. ;)

I just started doing research in this (excuse my ignorance)  Can 3d printing make small items like table top figures?  Not just for gaming.  I keep seeing things like prototypes for industry, so I am very curious.

Well he already has the file. I emailed last week to him, with him being sick, he may have overlooked it.
