Lady Ada's Super Happy Fun Blinky Workbench
Day/Time: Saturday and Sunday
Location: Oak Hall"Join Limor "Lady Ada" Fried who will show some of her projects and
kits in the Make Play Day area, including a TB-303 synthesizer clone,
animated pac-man wheels, and more!
She'll also have tons of inexpensive minipov kits on hand for people
to build & experiment with, right at the worktable! The MiniPOV kit is
a simple "persistance of vision" toy, similar in theory to the
"fantazein clocks" you've probably seen. When waved through the air, 8
red LEDs spell out a message! You can customize the message at home
with only a PC and some free software.
Super-hacker Bunnie will join in to help people make all of their
LED-blinky dreams come true!
Beginners are encouraged to stop by, no previous electronics
