Season’s greetings, friends!
We’ve got a lot going on in the Makerspace this month, so we thought it would be helpful to give a little preview of the holiday projects we’ve been working on to offer you!
In a rush to find the perfect gift? Or looking for a special kind of customizable, locally designed and made holiday decor? We’ve got your back! Stop by and ask us about any and all of these projects and we’ll get you set up to either make them yourself or we can make them for you!
IoT Holiday Lights by Richard Albritton
The Internet of Things doesn’t have to be limited to porch lights, garage doors, and refrigerators, nor should it be limited to the realms of big tech companies. Our in-house electronics maven, Richard Albritton, has made an easy to assemble and control Internet-connected string of holiday lights, complete with color and animation-cycle control through any web browser!
Light-up Electronic Cards by Jennifer Fox
Christmas cards are cool, but you know what’s cooler? Cards that light up that you hand-make to give to someone you know and love! We featured this neat bit of holiday tech last week, and its designer and creator, JenFox, wants everyone who wasn’t able to swing by for its first two workshops to still be able to make one for themselves. Stop by in the next few weeks and ask her about it!
MyOpen3D Prusa i3+ and 3D Printing 101 Bundle
Our 3D printing partners at MyOpen3D have bundled their Prusa i3+ 3D printer and their 3D Printing 101 class for $1129 (a $116 discount) for the rest of December. We featured this deal on our blog last week too, but it’s worth revisiting since, due to popular demand, the sale has been extended beyond “Cyber Monday.” A substantial holiday gift and a steal for anyone interested in diving right into 3D printing!
