Inaugural pr0duce night!

Ryan worked on a mini circuit bending kit, which Doug handsomely demonstrates.

Fernando regaled us with tails from his youth of modifying a soap-box car with a lawn mower engine. Thank god he never finished it. He also fiddled with some button LED circuits.

Michael did some research on a DIY traffic counter, for counting bicycle traffic around LA. There was a company that previously published some good resources to build your own pneumatic sensor under a Creative Commons License, but they’ve since been taken down. Internet Archive to the rescue! In early 2013 they still had posted a construction guide in English and Russian as well as the corresponding arduino software. All the parts were order and should be here for next weeks work night.
