This will be an “open hack”, and will be a repeat of our highly successful May “electronic disassembly” event where people brought a variety of electronic devices to rip apart while chatting. Come on out and 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.

Please note that this event will be held on SUNDAY, not Saturday (as usual).

In addition to your objects of deconstruction, Tom Jennings will give a demo of http://wps.com/projects/MP3-system/index.html - a computer music system for his 1970 AMC Hornet. This is an linux-based MP3 player operated by 2 knobs and 2 switches, with no visible computer controls.

If you have your own projects to demo, bring them out too.

So, come on out on Sunday… bring your ideas and something to rip apart. The last event like this was a lot of fun: hope to see you there!
