New NYC based hacker group HTINK has a day of workshops coming up for the electronically curious – perfect for those looking for a some orientation in the Arduino world. Eric writes -

This is a combination of 3 workshops, being offered over 5 hours. Anyone can come buy and build a freeduino kit while the other workshops are occuring, and the entire time people will be available to help get your arduino environment set up and your freeduino blinking an LED! You do not need ANY previous experience to attend these workshops, all you need is the materials specified and yourself!

Workshop 1: Freeduino kit build
Build an arduino clone kit and receive help setting it up on your laptop! This workshop will be offered twice, once at 1:15 PM and again at 3:15 PM.

Workshop 2: Pretty blinking LEDs!
We will build a set of 16 full color (RGB) LEDs under full software control using the TLC5940 controller chip. Students are required to have only an arduino and will leave with a cool looking blinky thing. This workshop will be offered once, at 3 PM.

Workshop 3: Motors and sensors
Students will learn how to use a servo, stepper, and DC motor with the arduino. Also reading sensor data will be covered. Kit materials include
everything you need (except the arduino) to build your own little robot! This workshop will be offered once, at 5 PM.

See the event site for details. All participants must have a laptop, and USB cable. Spare cables will be available for purchase at the event.
