This will be the third “open hack” event, with a workshop/activity in the disassembly of an electronic device. In other words, come on out and bring something interesting to rip apart: Tom Jennings will provide an overview of some disassembly issues and get us all rolling. Bring in something that you’ve never seen the insides of: an old VCR, toaster, alarm clock, keyboard, camera or a piece of industrial surplus. If you’ve never taken anything apart, don’t be intimidated: this activity is for both newbies and experienced folks. To help rip apart your electronics, you’re also welcome to bring some of your own tools in case things get busy and the “house” tools get monopolized.
In addition to your objects of deconstruction, you are also invited to bring your latest prototypes, napkin sketches, and items to get technical help or conceptual feedback on. This has been an increasingly fruitful part of the open hack events as people become more comfortable to share their ideas and projects.
