If you’re interested in helping out with various IT things at TCMaker, this is the meeting for you! We’re looking for people to help out with pretty much anything and everything IT-related. This first meeting will be focused on getting a list of things that need to be done, and things we want to be done.

We actually met in person at the Hack Factory Minne Faire ( coming up May 23 – 24th, 2015 ) and became friends. Having an interest in electronics, sound and manufacturing, lead us to collaborate on our current project called Synthino XM which got a Staff Pick in the Technology category on Kickstarter! Hack Factory and has been a very positive environment with tools and work space to make our project a reality. The assembly of the finished device is done completely by us here in Minneapolis, that includes surface mount component placing and IR soldering, acrylic cutting, device packaging, and fulfillment, If you have any questions about any of those steps or about running a kickstarter campaign feel free to contact us at [email protected] Thanks. –Alex ( www.getlofi.com ) and Michael ( www.nootropicdesign.com )
It just so happens that I’m a member of a local Star Trek fan club, as well as a TCMaker board member. (I am a multi-purpose nerd.) For the past eight years the USS Nokomis has run a party room at CONvergence. Last year the hotel was remodeled, and an 8 foot long, marble-topped desk replaced a (somewhat) easily-removed armoire. Since we can’t get it out of the room, I came up with an idea to make it fit into our Original Series decor — turn it into a control panel.
David Bryan, Riley Harrison, Cali Mansty, and Aaron Prust are presenting multiple projects for Northern Spark 2013 on June 8th in Downtown Saint Paul! Northern Spark is an overnight interactive festival starting at 8:58pm and ending at sunrise! We are inviting everyone to come and hang out, and enjoy the festival! The Hack Factory will have three spaces setup for people to come and interact with the Art.
We are also in the process of fundraising for this project, currently we need about $3,800 to help cover the costs of materials, and $4,200 total to cover rewards. We receive all funds that are pledged.
So lets talk about one of the projects, Strange Attractors. You may remember me from such things as the Raspberry Pi powered cat feeder. While I’m at it again, and making stuff with the Raspberry Pi. I was asked create a few blog posts for MCM that talked about the Raspberry Pi Camera module that I’m going to use in my next project.
