Hey guys. I stopped by tonight. I found that they take their craft very seriously, and meticulously work on every detail but a lot of us work on the functional aspects of a project over the aesthetics, and I was taken back when none of the members heard of the lilypad, let alone the Arduino platform.
One of the costumes had the head of a torch, but no ignitor. I was disappointed by the lack of fire.
I asked if they had any noise makers such as speakers and they did not.
I'm not meaning to rag on the group, they seem like a neat bunch, but I feel they are missing out on some potential.
For the August 20th meetup, would anybody be interested in having a joint meetup, willing they are interested? They teach us about the stuff they do, and we could teach them how to program and use lilypads.
I was impressed by some of their leather work.
