Jarrod and his worker elves are taking a little bit of Noisebridge to MakerFaire, the world gets lucky.

Contact Jarrod hicksu@gmail.com or message me on Slack for more details

Booth Pics and Table

Here are some preview pictures of Jarrod and his worker elves' setup for Maker Faire this year. There were a few more tweaks underway, but this is mostly all there was at this point.

Jarrod and his worker elves would like to emphasize that Noisebridge is an important resource for people to learn and make. Noisebridge should be more than a "makerspace", Noisebridge should be a community with a social mission to bring educative and creative autonomy to as many as possible. Noisebridge has had a rough patch but they have done some good work during the recent Reboot to work toward this mission and it is time to attract some attention.

Jarrod and his worker elves note that people are getting projects done there and this public hackspace thing could still be a good idea. Jarrod, his elf team, and their Noisebridge supporters would like to use this upcoming MakerFaire to contrive to get people to come to Noisebridge for the first time and to then come back to Noisebridge for repeat visits. Their urge is to connect with other Hackerspaces and to strengthen relationships. They yearn to meet other hackers and makers, and to bring projects into the Noisebridge space so that others may learn from them.

All about that booth

Jarrod's plan has been 1) to pack a whole bunch of Noisebridge into a 10' x 10' space and 2) to have a good time. Within MakerFaire, Jarrod and his worker elves have been going about to do their best to create a mini Hackspace that supports the ideas and creations that others bring. Here was Jarrod's idea:

Noisebridge MakerFaire Booth AXON.jpg

Essentially Jarrod and his worker elves have created a place where people can hack during the show and the ultimate exhibit is Noisebridge's community and its projects.

Nevertheless, the base for this space is custom furniture pieces that was made at Noisebridge, with Jarrod's love, for hacking. (When all you know is design and woodworking, every answer tends to be custom furniture). The centerpiece of this affair was a new work table with built in power outlets and a bright flashy Noisebridge logo on the top. A table that people could pull up a chair to and start working on a project. If there were other things that we should have tried to incorporate into the hacking table, let us know during MakerFaire itself or afterwards. The back of the booth has a set of rearrangeable cabinets that store tools and projects for use during the show and support and audio/video system for demonstrations and presentation during the show.

Here were more specific plans for the booth furniture, Jarrod recommended the .pdf:

UPDATED NB Logo Channel drawing: File:Noisebridge MakerFaire Booth TableDetail REV 01.pdf

The .pdf of the current working drawings for the table that we built is here:

https://noisebridge.net/images/a/a7/Noisebridge_MakerFaire_Table.pdf

Well made furniture /= mini hackerspace, Jarrod and his elf team required participation!

  • How could Jarrod and his elf team demonstrate Noisebridge in a 10' x 10' area, Was it possible to also enjoy this?
  • Helped build out the booth, added to it, decorated it, made it better, made it more 'Noisebridgie'
  • Lent/brought your projects, demonstrated your projects, and taught others you know
  • Worked on projects at the show, and had projects for others to work on
  • Spread the word about Jarrod and his elf team needing help and contrived to get people to come meet them.

Pre-MakerFaire Noisebridge Maker Meet and Greet

Ideally, everyone would have been able to go down to MakerFaire and check out the neat stuff. For those that couldn't, Jarrod, his elf team, and their supporters have suggested an event to bring in Makers who are in town to talk about their projects and to meet up with other hackers/makers. Jarrod has been thinking about special Five minutes of Fame and a mellow cocktail party events that could hopefully raise significant additional funds for the space.

Schedules and Specifics

Thanks to you current and possibly future worker elves for getting this far. This was mostly worked out prior to the start of MakerFaire. You potential worker elves could still help with this.

Planned projects for Display and Presentations/Demonstrations

Scotty's Land Yacht, Julio's LED aquarium, book scanner, ....

 1 gallon kit is $77.60 via Amazon prime, need two kits $155.20

Electrical and Electronics

LED Strip: WS2812B individually addressable

 Can be purchased from ebay or alibaba.
 example: http://alturl.com/eh5k6 $9.99-12.99/meter
 or http://www.adafruit.com/category/168 for $24.99/meter
 JH - We have ~16' of linear distance inside the logo. So I'm considering purchasing this from the ebay vendor: 
 -- LEDs/m: 60, Board's Color: White, Waterproof Grade: Epoxy IP65, Length: 5m, Price:US $74.99

LED Controller/driver:

 Arduinos work fantastically. A Pro Mini works great and cheap.
 JH- https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11113 is this correct? $9.95
  HT- Yeah that works perfectly.

Power for microcontroller and LEDs:

 Just need a 5v power supply of some sort, can be salvaged from existing cords by splitting the wire open and solder onto on/off switches.
 JH- Something like this? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12889 $5.95
  HT- Yeah this works perfectly.
 I expect we need something separate for the LEDs. We will have >16 feet of them in the table.
  JH- You make a good point, do you know of any electrical engineer that can do calculations on the electricity draw?

100-1000uf capacitor:

 To prevent sudden power drops.
 https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/ws2812-breakout-hookup-guide

Wiring and Power

 Need wiring diagram and Spec
 TO SPEC: breaker, outlets, wire, jbox, switches, wire nuts
 IEC 60320 C14 power inlet to connect to outlet inhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60320#C13.2FC14_coupler

Tools

Have: Typical NB Shop tools, Plate Joiner,

Need: Router bits with bearing over the blade to help the speed and accuracy of the logo channel cuts as Jarrod and his worker elves increase their depth.

Software and Documentation
