New Haven Maker Meetup, Christmas Edition

I’ve been getting a lot of emails about the next New Haven Maker Meetup, so it must be about that time again.

The Eli Whitney will be hosting the second Maker Meetup in the first week of December, so Christmas themes are welcome, though Thanksgiving projects are certainly interesting too. Actually, I wouldn’t mind seeing some neat Halloween costumes or setups either, but that’s just me. 

What: New Haven Maker Meetup, Christmas Edition
When: Tuesday, December 1, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Where:

Eli Whitney Museum (directions)
915 Whitney Avenue
Hamden, CT 06517
(203) 777-1833

How Much: Free
RSVP (preferred): kl@eliwhitney.org

Here’s a couple projects Mike, Chris and Matt did for the holidays last year that might make another appearance:

The 8-bit embedded TurkeyShield

This year, maybe a 32-bit embedded turkey with the IXM?

Mike’s Christmas Tree Upgrade

And it’s always fun to make lights blink in cool new ways :-)

Give me a shout if you’d like me to send a reminder email, or if there’s a project Mike and I should bring to this meetup – jhuynh at gmail. Hope to see you there!

well, i'll be there, but admittedly it'll be armed with a lot of ixm's instead of turkeys :)

Hey Justin. Excellent. I will bring my daughter and her Halloween muppet costume--even though it does not have an embedded Arduino (yet).

Do you post to Twitter? It is good to have more channels to get the word out.

@Paul, look forward to seeing you there! I've posted it on twitter to my account: twitter.com/justinvhuynh

I'll be there. Though the Cylon-O-Lantern became bug food awhile ago, I'll bring the guts. My Ikea Spoka hack should be done too, and I'll see what other cool things I may have going on.
