Time to start the DC orchestra it seems! I majored in music performance in college then took some non-music career turns but now I'm playing again (flute, piccolo, alto flute, bass flute, and oboe) in some local groups. I'm working with a teacher who is in the NY Philharmonic and trying to get together a recital for me to play so I could have a more recent stuff soon!

This is a pretty crazy look at how out of date our nuclear silos are here in the US. It was a story on 60 Minutes last night. 8' floppies? From the 1960s!?!

For those interested in LilyPad, you might want to check out FLORA, which gives even more options!

Yes, it's true that it helps to have two techies. I got into arduino due to trying to make some conductive fabric art (I'm making a cody with lilypad right now!).

I sort of wish I had a daughter to see what she could do with some of this stuff! Fun!
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Arduino/Raspberry Pi - The perfect bonding experience for geek/techie couples? on: February 11, 2014, 08:22:59 AM
This past weekend, my boyfriend and I spent the entire weekend making things with Lilypad/Arduino. I did the coding and sewing (I'm making wearables) and it turns out that he was really into electronic components as a kid so he started with that. Then I hit a glitch in my code and he had something wired wrong and we both worked through the logic on both things and fixed the problem. Talking to Mouser about it and how much fun we had, we realized that this could be a great thing not just for kids but for adults who are looking for something that's geeky fun! smiley Give it a shot!

And it works! The light came on! Now to cover up the conductive thread with something a bit nicer looking and onto the next project! smiley

This is a pretty simple first project -- an LED bookmark book light. I free form cut the bookmark pieces out of felt and now I just have to wait for the fabric glue to set before I start sewing with the conductive thread to get the LED light in the middle of the daisy to light up. The thing at the bottom of the bookmark is where the battery will go. I'm working through a series of exercises in the book "Sew Electric."

I have the feeling I'm going to have a lot of fun this week working through the intro projects! I'll post the finished bookmark tomorrow with conductive and decorative stitches! Then it's onto the next project - an LED bracelet with a computer chip to control the light with so it blinks, fades, etc.

Cool! I'm going to be using my kit for sewing/quilt stuff so this should be fun. I'm going to make a Cody doll with lights as my first project!

Hi everyone! I'm waiting on my LillyPad Arduino Design Kit to arrive in the mail and I thought I'd start a thread here to see if anyone else is working with Arduino with or without LillyPad. When I get going I'll post pictures and tips I learn from my sewing/electronics/programming voyage! smiley

Here's the kit I ordered: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12073

I think I would have phrased the Amazon Delivery by Drone question in the FAQ as "is this for f***ing real?" versus just asking if it was science fiction... tongue

19  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / It's that NaNoWriMo Time of Year Again! on: October 27, 2013, 08:03:27 PM
Hey fellow DC peeps!

It's charchu from the #donationcoder here to remind people that in a few short days, National Novel Writing Month will be upon us again! What's that you say? Well, you can learn more and sign up here: http://nanowrimo.org/ But basically you write 50k words in 30 days -- a novel in a month!

Who else from DC is participating this year?
20  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: How to dial Emergency Services, around the world. on: April 26, 2013, 04:12:57 PM
seems like there should be a way to make a universal number and/or redirect all these to one so that people can just dial whatever they can remember at the time. lol...but that would require years of negotiation probably...some country would take offense at any number used.

and going with that idea...let's just make it 666. Wink

WOW!!!!! That's an amazing design and you look great in the pix too! I wish I could have done something for NANY this year but there was absolutely no way with the medical situation (which seems to be getting worse...). Hally & Mouser -- any plans for a DC fundraising edition of this?????

Hi everyone!!

Some of you know that I've been in massive pain for a long time and I can't walk much and I've been losing feeling in my legs. I'm doing an online fundraiser at http://www.gofundme.com/1kgcu4

Anything you can give -- DC credits work too -- would be greatly appreciated! And if you are on FB, you can add me as a friend (Michelle Hinn) and follow along as I update the fundraiser. Please share on your social networks if you can! I'd really, really appreciate it.

I'll be keeping a blog at http://spineadventures.com/ that will tell people all the details about back surgery and more! I just started it and my back is saying "are you crazy" right now so I must lie down for a while. But stay tuned! smiley

Thanks!
VRGRRL/Charchu/Michelle
