@Milind Your pics and video are stunning! We kept talking about it at the Make & Munch I attended this weekend. Please post your event to the project page so others can see … plus it could get featured!
@leo People look really engaged! Can you post your event to the project page? ALSO … your rocket to the project page? Thanks!
Thanks Jude, Its been busy days and I am working on video Edit. Hopefully it will be done by this week.
Sorry, I did post that on the “projects” page, but a summary. The challenge was : Make something (with the craft materials) and have it “do” something. Boys’ group made a duck sitting on a nest (nest was light wire and the tree was on a servo). Girls’ 1 made a monkey and giraffe with a tree (light wire) and Girls’ 2 (latecomers) made a garden of flowers, where one was turning (DC motor) and second was lit up (light wire).
starts at noon EST ttps://unhangout.media.mit.edu/event/littlebits
Hi @chloeatplay and averybody,
Unfortunately I’ve been travelling a lot so far, so it was quite complicated to join the community call. However I posted some pictures of the event in Ireland here:
A quick preview:
I’ll also post some videos asap
Keep making guys
super cool! @ValentinaC thank you <3 we should have you come as a special guest in one upcoming community call to share all your wisdom ^^
finally here are some photos of our event here in Munich. We had technical - speak mechanical - issues so we couldn’t finish what we planned to build: A noise sensitve flower. But we had fun and I guess that’s the important part.
Here’s the link to the project page: http://littlebits.cc/projects/noise-sensitve-flowers-inventanything
@matthiasmwolf I am coming to Munich 16th April and planning day trip to Lynz. Would love to see/experience things at your lab…
@Milind It is great that you’re coming over to Munich. It is a pity that I will not be at home the next days for business reasons. Besides, there wouldn’t be much to see yet as we are just starting to build up our littleBits lab. I hope that you can enjoy your days in Germany and Austria anyway. What are you planning to do?
This is such stellar documentation @matthiasmwolf - and so fitting to spring I m going to reshare on the chapters’ category as well.
On another note- what technical issues did you guys have? Maybe we can help you solve them for next time
It was mainly a mechanical problem. A servo was supposed to pull down a string which was attached to four “flowers”, which would fan out (see last image above). However, there was to much friction and the straw we used to guide the strings weren’t stiff enough. So we had a lot of twisting and bending and jamming when our time ran out.
Using wire instead of strings (e.g. florist wire) would have made things a lot easier I guess…
there’s some news concerning the first event of the Munich chapter on June 20th in Germany:
- There’s a new name: Bits’n’Beatz. inventors’ camp will be the name for the chapter and is the organizer.
- There’s a new topic: littleBits workshop and 8bit live music.
- There’s a new website: www.bits-n-beatz.de
- There’s nothing new about date and location: June 20th, 2015 @ DieProduktMacher in Munich
Could you be so super awesome as to update the event data for this event?
Hi all! Jack and I hosted a workshop at my local library this past weekend, which I shared on the project page: http://littlebits.cc/projects/library-workshop
Here is a cute instagram video the librarian took:
It was quick, easy, and a lot of fun!
@JackANDJude you make everything looks easy. I think that’s your superpower!
I also enjoyed reading about you and Jack in the blog. I highly recommend this reading to everyone.
