Soldering stations, oscilloscope, 3-D printer, woodshop, cnc, and a data center.
Are there any tools your group really wants or needs?
A lasercutter would be a nice addition to our arsenal.
What sort of embedded tech does your Hackerspace work with?
We work with PIC, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi, and many more.
In fact one of our recent projects was a DIY PIC Programmer.
Can you tell us about some of your group’s recent tech projects?
One of the group’s first tech projects was the “MAME,” a full-size gaming arcade. The project was going well until there was a break in at the location and they lost some equipment; the MAME was put on the backburner. After they moved to their new location and gained a new member, an art teacher named John, the project garnered interest again. He came up with the design for it. Afterwords it was painted, they got a coin mechanism, speakers were hooked up, and the software was installed and configured. IT was finally finished.
