Day/Time: (30 minutes)

Location: Make Theatre

A session with Nathan Seidle and the Spark Fun Electronics mantra of trying the unknown, and when sparks fly, unplug it! We will discuss building your own cell phone along with a demonstration of the Port-O-Rotary cellular rotary phone. Topics on allusive technologies like GPS and Bluetooth will be boiled down and shown just how easy it is to play with old and new technologies. These 'black box' technologies (like cellular, GPS, and Bluetooth) all use serial communications to interact, and are actually very easy to harness!
