Some lasers. We don’t have any of these
Looking forward to seeing you there! Bring lasers!*
*actually, don’t bring any lasers. We wouldn’t want to deal with the paperwork.
LAMMSpace for the awesome lasercut sign.
We have ordered the
4tronix Cube:Bit. Prepare your sunglasses!(and 10 Amp power supplies)
On an unrelated note, where do you get a 10 amp 5v PSU from?
We will have a short planning meetup this Thursday 27th at 2PM. Meet at the library frontdesk, all are welcome!
We will have a look at the space and then retire to a location with warm beverages. Stay as long as you want.
