CF Steam Punk - TinkerNights (2.0)
« on: July 10, 2012, 11:52:46 PM »
Reposting this, since we're doing it again. Not once, but three more times!

The Central Florida Steampunk Association will be having a TinkerNight at FamiLAB starting at 7:00 PM.  This is a gathering to work on projects, so there's no agenda, but this is an opportunity to meet Steampunk makers, and see some projects they're working on.  All are welcome!

Here are the dates:
  • July 23rd, 2012
  • August 20th, 2012
  • September 24th, 2012

I think I'll have to be out for this, because it looks pretty awesome!
I like colors.

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.  ;D   I was impressed by some of their leather work.
