    […] We’re a friendly group of beginners and experts. We like to make and hack things. We’re more than Arduino. We’re really a generalized hack/make group. Check out this video collage of some of our recent travels, Dave’s Christmas lights or our past events. […]

  • inventorArtist » Arduino Day 2015 :
