October 25th BlinkyTile Workshop Recap

A couple of weeks ago, on October 25th, Marty and Amy ran a workshop at the Baltimore Node Hackerspace in Baltimore, MD.

Participants worked together to build BlinkyTile sculptures using some of our beta BlinkyTile panels.

It took some time to snap out and prep the tiles on the older boards. The newer board revisions have made this much easier!

Every participant had different ideas for sculptures to build and how best to put them together.

Some folks built dodecahedron lamps, but we also had some interesting and unique sculptures!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the workshop. We learned a ton about how to make BlinkyTile even better for our Kickstarter backers!

For the curious, you can find my slides and instructions for the workshop here.
