Hardware Hacking Fridays occur every Friday starting at 7PM at Unallocated Space

We encourage you to bring whatever project you want to work on. If you don't have one, show up with a willingness to learn!

If you don't have your own project, we'll have a project ready to go that's suitable for all levels of experience.

Even if you can't tell the difference between a resistor and a capacitor, or have never picked up a soldering iron, we'll teach you everything you need to know to take home a cool hardware hacking project and get you excited about making more!

Current Emphasis

Building the Loft Armor! Get some rework practice clearing our large collection of obsolete motherboards and help us build a wrap-around loft armor!

Obsolete motherboard donations for the armor are greatly appreciated!


Current Schedule

September 16 2011 : Show and Tell!

Come off and give a brief presentation on some projects you've been working on and why we should build them at future HHFs

September 23 2011 : Arduino Uno Kit Build!

We're going to be building and having some fun with the Arduino Uno kit from Sparkfun! This is a great intro to hardware hacking and is perfect for people who want to learn how to code for simple hardware projects.

We have these on sale now!

September 30 2011
