Project Open Sesame: Building an Arduino based Access System

Date: 
Thu, 12/13/2012 - 7:00pm

 The idea of this get together is to start a series of meetings to plan and build an all encompassing security door system to be used at the hackerspace. The plan involves more than the standard RFID off the shelf systems that currently exist. I hope to document our work and publish it as we go / when we're done to help other spaces and groups with a new take on a security system. MEETING ONE will be brainstorming / accessing actual needs and listing wishful features. If time permits, then categorize the idea into over systems.

WaterLUG: The Waterbury Linux Users Group - PUBLIC INVITED

Date: 
Thu, 12/06/2012 - 7:00pm

The suggested topic is Dia and other diagramming/flowchart software. I'm making a text-based game for a class I'm taking, and I'm using Dia to model some aspects of the project. If people have experience with UML or anything like that and want to chime in, that would be much appreciated. Anything more generally about flowcharts or diagrams would be great too.

Arduino DC & Stepper Motor Control Workshop

Date: 
Sat, 12/08/2012 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm

This workshop will focus on controlling both DC and Stepper Motors using the Arduino Microcontroller.

     When working on projects that require any kind of motion  you will typically need to integrate a motor or two. Whether using a simple DC permanent magnet motor or a stepping motor, controling the direction, speed and/or position can be integral to the success your project. To follow are some common projects that require precise motor control:

EMC2 keyboard shortcut Labels

 

 Linux CNC EMC2 Keyboard Key Labels

 

I was getting tired of using the mouse to adjust settings on the hackerspaces' engraver. I knew there were keyboard short cuts but did not know what they were and I know for sure I would not remember where they were. So I decided to make some labels and attach them to the keys.
