This is a similar take on the Bare Conductive Touch board I demonstrated, but this project uses the Teensy board.

Have you RSVP'd for the NashMicro "Vendor Night" yet?  A night dedicated to show & tell from folks that make real products full-time.  This should be a great event!  Please RSVP now.
Nashville is booming with start-ups right now and some have been wanting to show us what they've been working on but its been hard to find time to squeeze them into our regular meetings. So, we're hosting this special event as a way to let everyone show their stuff in one night. These will not be your ordinary sales pitches. In order to participate, they've agreed to void the warrantees and show us how it works (within reason...). This should be ...

Looks like this new event is going to be the same weekend (May 1-3) we were targeting for our "Make Day".  So, we're going to reschedule since this will sure be a bigger event that we'll all want to participate in.  Saturdays are all gone for me in April.  Any objections to a Sunday?  Hate to but its the only option at this point.
The latest Tweets and replies from Hack Tennessee (@HackTennessee). The Southeast's largest maker event. Teams gather from across the country to prototype new platforms, apps and gadgets. Everything we build together matters. Nashville, TN

Nice!  Hopefully, one of you Nashmicronians will order one of these and bring it to show & tell.  And let me borrow it... ;)

A big thanks to everyone that came out and helped at the Adventure Science Center's Wibbly Wobbly Dr. Who weekend last weekend! I think we probably set an all time record for sonic screwdrivers constructed in a single weekend!  If you have other pics from the event, please post them.
