Workshop Update for July 31st, 2012

Posted on Tuesday, July 31st, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Tomorrow we’ll post a tutorial about designing your own custom laser cut acrylic case, then it’s off to Singapore for a Global Geek Tour of the electronics markets and hackerspace. Check for live tweets from the market tour on Friday, and Maker Faire coverage all weekend. Worthy tweets will be moved to the blog for the Twitter haters.

Today we recorded a workshop video with some stories from the “first season” of the Global Geek tour. That will go up Thursday as normal while we’re sitting in an airport in Dubai.

A big box of laser cut case tests and giveaway goodies from Seeed arrived. We’ll have a Seeed giveaway after a Microchip/Digilent giveaway that’s coming up in August.

Bus Pirate Demo Board v5 firmware was stuck in first gear today, as we tried to get the I2C EEPROM emulation to work. Today’s end result, single and bulk writing is ready, while reading is completely broken.
