Did we mention we have a big awesome laser cutter? Probably! We always mention that. Enjoy this little video Matt threw together while laser cutting himself a laptop stand. Complete with corny Antiques Roadshow-esque jazz music.
Do you want to cut your own laptop stand? Head on over to Thingiverse! Have your own idea? Come on in and we’ll teach you how to use this beast!
It’s not scary, it’s not difficult, and it doesn’t take years to learn. I think I can prove that to you though this crash course on computer programming. It’s not going to get you a job at Google, but it will let you figure out which words are used most frequently in the book “Alice in Wonderland”, or generate a list of anagrams for your friend’s names! Isn’t technology amazing?
You probably should have paid attention in highschool shop class, but you didn’t. As a result, your fingers are at risk. In an effort to remedy this, resident expert Dave Alvarez is teaching a wood shop safety class. If you feel lost and confused in the wood shop, take this class. If you don’t feel lost and confused, you should probably attend anyways because you developed a few bad habits over the years. We said so.
Come one, Come all!

*WARNING* HALLOWEEN PARTY IMMINENT *WARNING*
Just a friendly reminder. Put all those little final touches on your costume and head out to our halloween party tonight! Matt has rigged up a personal interactive LED display for people to mess with. Send tweets to @MattsCostume tonight (7pm and later) to display your tweet on his sign. Pretty cool! Be sure to do a twitter search for @MattsCostume after the event to read all of the past hilarity that he had to walk around with. Dont be too wordy though, the sign is only capable of displaying 76 characters at once, so you’ll get cut off if you ramble too much! See the video below:
SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!
Come get your Makerbotting on. We know what you’re thinking, and yes, it’s a verb now. We said so. Come on down to learn how to print magical pieces of plastic from our makerbot. It’s free, and nutritious as long as you don’t eat the actual magic. That will probably make you sick. Eat a vitamin pill and some baby carrots instead.
Also, printed circuit board (PCB) design 101. Resident expert Roger is stepping up to the plate to cram some knowledge in your eager little heads about how to churn out PCB designs with the best of em. This class won’t cover actually fabricating the boards themselves (that’s a whole ‘nother class), but should get you well-off enough to be able to submit the design to a fab-house online or etching it yourself using some fancy chemicals (again, that’s another class).
ALL SEATS JUST ZERO BUCKS!
SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!
4:00pm-5:00pm – Intro to Makerbot
5:00pm-7:00pm – Designing and Procuring PCBs
