An update in the Project: Nomad series. Here we are finishing the welding of the frame which mounts the PDP-11 onto the drive train.

SYN Shop is looking for equipment to set up our new shop. We are also interested in taking tool donations for resale to support our organization (and baby mountain lions!!).

This class is limited to 20 participants, so RSVP now to get in!

The world is abuzz with credit card sized computers that are inexpensive and easy enough for home hobbyists, artists, and professionals to use.  One such computer is the Arduino, created by a group of Italian researchers and released freely to the world.

An update in the Project: Nomad series.  Here I go through preparing the PDP-11 for mounting on the robot frame, as well as do a quick tear down and tour of the PDP-11/23 CPU and MDM drive chassis.

I had the opportunity while I wasn't in the booth to snap a few photos of the SYN Shop booth at First Friday.

Andrew and Nathan manning the Do-nato and 3D printer side of the booth.  Collin is talking to people in front of the booth.  Plus we have an awesome sign.

First Friday went really, really well.  It exceeded my expectations and the whole group is already talking about what we need to do to make the booth better for the next event in August.  Come by and help us plan it out next Saturday.
 
There was a steady stream of people (adults, teens and kids) all night.  Our main crowd probably came through from about 7pm - 9pm.

Come and meet other makers / hackers / DIYers. Bring any projects you'd like to show off or want some help on, tell people about any cool stuff you'd like to share, and meet the wonderful Las Vegas maker community. It should be a good size meetup since we had such great feedback at First Friday! Some people will be working on projects for DEFCON, and would appreciate more help; so stop by, it should be a great day.
