Join us later today for our tenth and final installment for 2013’s Weekend Projects Hangouts On Air. We’ll be discussing the Beatband Sleeve, that turns your pulse into flashing LEDs. While there are many ways to achieve this, the Beatband Sleeve takes a novel approach to both making and learning. First, the circuit is prototyped on a breadboard following the classic MintDuino how-to. After flashing the microcontroller with our Pulse Sensor compatible code, the entire circuit will be transferred to and soldered on perfboard. Some unique approaches to layout and design will allow the perfboard to be placed back inside the MintDuino tin for portability.

We’ll be joined on today’s HOA by MAKE Books Editor David Scheltema, Getting Started with MakerBot co-author MakerBlock, and myself, along with 2012′s Maker Camp Director Nick Raymond.
