There’s a Maker‘s Space at the DAI in Heidelberg that’s just started up. I’ve been to the DAI a couple times. It has an awesome collection of (English language) books and I want to read them all. It’s an inspiring place by itself and I came away from the maker’s meetup wanting to do more.
The group is new there. They’ve invested in a 3D printer and some 3D pens, and the gaggle of people had a buzz about them too. After looking some 3D dresses and some people messing about with Arduinos the host and I got chatting. They’re planning a launch at the end of April and were looking for people to demonstrate. Without a concrete plan of what to do I volunteered.
So I bought the official Arduino Starter Kit. And it comes in a really pretty box. I want to make something that makes some noise, but I’ll need to go through the Hello World stage and I’ll want to mess about with other things too. The project book it comes with looks really well laid out and the components are just what I need to start with.
I’ve set myself up GitHub Repo and will be keeping you updated here.
