WHAT: Build digital dominoes and make a large display
WHERE: CrashSpace 10526 Venice Blvd, Culver City CA 90232
WHEN: Wednesday June 1st 8pm
WHY: It’ll be fun.
Daryll’s Digital Domino is a kit that won an editors choice award at Maker Faire 2011. Each domino can be “knocked over” by pressing the button on the board, at which point it signals the next domino in line using infrared. These kits are very easy to assemble even if you have no soldering experience you can have one together in less than half an hour. If you’re more experienced, our fastest time is about 5 minutes.
Kits are available for $20 at CrashSpace (discounts for members) which include all the parts to make four digital dominoes. If you already purchased a kit bring it by and solder it up. If you’ve already built your dominoes bring those by and we’ll see what sort of large display we can make.
The domino is an open hardware project. All the details on the parts, PCB, and instructions are available at http://lahack.com/ddd.
I hope we’ll see you there.
