Hive76 (your friendly neighborhood hackerspace) just moved into a new space, and has some great stuff going on this month. This is the first in a (hopefully monthly) update about what is going on at our space, and in the hackerspace movement in general.
Giant Version of REDACTEDfor Body World: Make:Philly and Hive76 are making a huge REDACTED game for an event with Body Worlds 2 and The Franklin. Saturday 11/ 28 we are painting, and doing some final build work. It’s an awesome project, and (I have to say this) were doing it for the children. Plus giant versions of regular stuff are just awesome!
New Space Party: Hive76 just moved to a bigger space, and we want to celebrate it. So on 12/5 we’re having a small shin-dig at our space. If you want an invite, drop a line to [email protected], and we will send one your way. We’ll have DJ’s, VJ’s, games, Food and Drink, and a bunch of geeky and great folks. We also emptied our account to move, so we’re going to ask for a couple of bucks $10 to cover food and drinks.
Guitar Effects Workshop: If you’d rather rock out on your guitar,on 12/7 we’re going to have a Guitar Effects workshop to build Tube Screamers. If you want to give a handmade gift to a music geek (including yourself) this would be an awesome place to do it. You’ll walk away with a finished Tube Screamer for $50, and all of the know-how to build more.
AVR Class: On 12/12 we’re going to be running a microcontroller class for hacking on AVR chips. Want a rubicks cube robot, and Programmable RFID chip, or a touchscreen picture frame, AVR is the way to go. Did I mention that it’s a fundraiser to help kickstart FUBAR hackerspace? Check it out, It’ll be awesome.
Merry Print-mas: Before Christmas (date TBD) we are going to be open for Merry Print-mas, where anyone can come and use our Makerbot 3d printer to print one free copy of anything at all on Thingiverse. It’s been a great year for our hackerspace, and you all deserve a present. Keep an eye on our weblog and calendar for the date when it gets announced.
Open Hive Wednesdays: And, as always every Wednesday except holidays is Hackerspace Open House at Hive76. 7:30 to 10:30. Come out and Make Things Awesome, and Make Awesome Things.
