Here are the details for the next GO-Tech, Ann Arbor geek meeting, 2/12/08. At the last meeting they made a  BBB (Arduino clone) pictured here.

Ann Arbor-area (MI) fans of Make Magazine, Circuit Cellar, Digital Machinist, Kevin Kelly’s Cool Tools, and other similar interests are cordially invited to the seventh GO-Tech (formerly NotBAGO) meeting, Tuesday February 12 at 8 pm in the common house at Great Oak Cohousing.

We’re interested in making things using technologywhether that’s a metal-cutting lathe or a Python script.  We have machinists, electrical engineers, software folks, industrial control folks, and so on.  We share projects, information about tools and ideas, and connect with like-minded people.

After introductions, we have 5 minute presentations by anyone who wants to talk.  We have wi-fi, video projector (VGA or video input), Mac laptop, extension cords, and copier.  Bring your latest cool project.

February’s meeting will include a presentation on XBee ZigBee RF modules and a discussion of having a BBB/Arduino contest.  Plus whatever neat project you bring.

Past activities and presentations have included:

  • BBB (Arduino-clone) microcontroller build night, with over 20 people and nearly 30 BBB’s assembled and tested
  • instrumenting a power-generating dam
  • web based data logging for a solar hot water heater
  • open source mathematics and plotting software
  • industrial color sensing
  • lost-foam aluminum casting
  • casting flowers in bronze

Directions:  Great Oak Cohousing is located on the west side of Ann Arbor off of Jackson between Zeeb and Wagner http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/notbago/join  Park along Little Lake Drive, please, not in the parking lot.
