Bike Lights Workshop

From Noisebridge
Jump to: navigation, search

First held 4/19/13! Next one coming up, 6/30/13!

Hack nights to create your own set of bike lights. They are:

  • Cheap - $10-15 suggested donation for parts
  • Durable - water- and shock-resistant, and easily repaired at Noisebridge
  • Un-stealable - mounted to the bike chassis, not desirable to bike thieves, nor easily removable
  • Gorgeous - bright, custom-colored, custom-designed
  • Easy - you may pick up a little soldering skill; the rest is your kindergarten class on glue guns and stickers

I'm currently looking for a good name for these... D.I.Lights? Tantalights? Help me pick something :)

  • Church classroom, at the back of Noisebridge
  • $10-15 suggested donation for materials
  • Start time 7pm
  • Bring your bike!!
  • We'll go tronning around town, after! Show off your lights and give them a trial run. :)

Generally led by Merlin, but anybody is welcome to teach. Also, would love to have guest teachers for extra spiffy touches (bike-powered energy source, POV hacks, ...).

Bill o' Materials, for the curious
