Workshop Update for September 28th, 2012

Posted on Friday, September 28th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today we’re touring the electronics side of New York. We visited the Hack Manhattan hackerspace, Radio Shack, MakerBot store, 269 Electronics store, Argo Electronics store, and the Leeds Radio store. Check out our tweeter feed with live picture updates.

We wrote the application note posts that will be posted during the weekend. We also drew up some illustrations for tutorials we’ll be posting next week.

We continue our work on the VFD tube holder board, pictured above. We plan on using them via multiplexing, so most pins are multiplexed together.
