Share Your Event Date & Time

@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?

Cheers,

Matthias

This is such stellar documentation @matthiasmwolf - and so fitting to spring :sunflower: 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 :smile:

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…

Cheers,

Matthias

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!

Thanks for sharing Bridget (@Thingfully). Make sure you add this to your Chapter page-- that way we can promote it as the date approaches.

ahem. Although I am a digital veteran (with beginner’s mind)… I couldn’t figure out how to add it to my chapter page. Is there a URL that could walk me through posting on my chapter page? Perhaps it’s a function of my two emails for logging in… :blush:

I’ll show you on Friday when I see you in person! Make sure to remind me :smile:

Hey @MakerMark, did you know you can upload your events directly to your Chapter page? If you visit your Chapter homepage (while logged in), there is a create an event button. That’s the perfect place to add this event.
