FamiLAB POV (Persistence of Vision) Kit

As with most things in life – it took someone with some passion and drive to make it finally happen – kudos to Mike Bakula for prototyping a kit, getting input from the community, and then producing our first kit! This kit uses an ATTINY to light up the LEDs on the end, and when waved back […]
FamiLAB Workshops at Otronicon
We’ve taken our regular workshops on the road to Otronicon, a video game inspired conference that showcases the best in tech that Orlando has to offer. Come learn to solder, program in Scratch, see the Raspberry Pi in action or learn more about the Arduino platform! The workshops are free, except for Learn to Solder which has a materials cost. More info is available on the Otronicon website.

FamiLAB Soldering Class – June 2011

Special thanks to Cloudspace for hosting the event, to the […]
