Airmonica

The airmonica is a easy-to-learn tweakable DIY musical instrument that you can use to perform harmonic musical ditties by accompanying a tri-tone arpeggiator. There are endless opportunities to expand the airmonica in any way that will make it your your own custom instrument.

Maker Faire Attendees can make a wristband that has circuits sewn into it to make a FLASHY expression.  Led lights, small batteries and conductive silver thread make a lighted wristband/bracelet that show off your sparkly nature.

Fun article about soft circuits from MAKE Magazine:

“Do you like crafting or sewing? Do you love LEDs? Well, why not combine your passions with this ‘wire-free’ LED bracelet!

Here’s a quick and relatively easy soft-circuit project we led a workshop on in April 2007. Have a little fun with conductive thread and ‘sewing’ circuits and make a cool battery-powered LED cuff to wear out and about. It is only powered while you are wearing it because the fastener acts as a switch. No soldering/wiring required!” Article LINK

Who knew Science could be so fun!

 

9/13 Meeting & Sunday Project

Maker and Volunteer Badges!

We are holding a Badge party this weekend:

WHEN: This Sunday, 10:00AM                                                                                                   WHERE: We will be meeting at Quelab                                                              WHAT: Create Badges! We are creating badges for All Makers and Volunteers out of the sealing lids for wide mouth canning jars.

You can decorate your own badge and Make a few more. All Makers and Volunteers are invited to join!

Badges will have our main logo to cut and put in place and then we will have all kinds of glitter and assorted odd items to glue into place. We will be using regular glues and hot glues as well. Then our volunteer Betsy will pour resin over the badges and drill the holes for the lanyards and we will have our hand made New Mexico style badges! We will need to put labels on the back to add the maker’s name for their own badge.

Please fill out our Maker-In-Training Questionnaire if you haven’t already and get on the Volunteer list!

It is likely that we can begin this process on Thursday but we do need to make sure we have the banners finished.
