Setting up your prototype

The first part of setting up your prototype is setting up your breadboard, connecting it to your microcontroller.
The ITP – the Interactive Telecommunications Program – part of NYU have some nice tutorial pages, for example showing how to set up your breadboard step by step. A lot of work goes into writing and documenting this..

Are you currently working on an electronic tinkering project? Do you want to discover all kinds of buttons, potentiometers, infrared detectors, movement detectors, gassensors, coloursensors, pressure sensors, sonar etc? Are you curious to see how you can use these handmade – reused – new buttons and sensors? Do you have urgent techie issues?

The Ellentriek sessions are collaborative work moments where you can ask questions, share knowledge and get inspired by other projects. This Ellentriek focusses specifically on sensors.

We provide all kinds of material to work with (soldering-desoldering irons, troubleshooting equipment) including physical help by humans. For beginners and up

Enrolling is advised: wendy @ttt

If you have specific questions/needs with regard to your project, send them to us. The more we know what you are working on, the better we can prepare.

Nog niet over windmolens maaarr over borduren.

OK, OK, wat kunnen echte Ellentriekers en Ellentrieksters met borduren aanvangen, kun je je misschien afvragen, maar de excellente tutorials op Crafty Daisies, via de Craftzine weblog, hebben me overtuigd om ze op Ellentriek te posten. Ze zijn zeer goed!

Het is trouwens mogelijk om ledjes in kleren te naaien, zo kun je je geleidende draad artistiek verwerken in textiel (oef toch wat Ellentriek :-))

Laat die Franse knoopjes maar komen!
