Join us on Thursday, September 20th for a special pre-Maker Faire Meetup! Hackaday MakeIt NYC is once again teaming up with our friends at Kickstarter, this time bringing you a night of awesome music hacks, snacks and more!

7:00 pm – 10:00 pm: Pre-Maker Faire Meetup at Fat Cat Fab Lab

We’re heading East! Join MatterHackers, Ultimaker, and more community friends to kick off Maker Faire New York at Fat Cat Fab Lab for a discussion on different kinds of “Make” with some of your favorite Content Creators. Pizza, refreshments, and great conversation will be provided! All ages are allowed for this portion of the event.

11:00pm – 2:00am: Midnight Games at Hack Manhattan

Join the Hack Manhattan “night crew” for some early morning boardgames. In the city that never sleeps, night owls and insomniacs congregate to draw cards, toss dice, move pieces, calculate odds and bluff opponents.

Friday, September 21th:

9:00 pm – 1:00 am: Bring-A-Hack at the The Leaf

To celebrate our 10 year anniversary and our love of cool hardware hacks, join us for a #BringAHack event in the Big Apple! Join BeagleBoard.org for a casual evening of drinks, snacks and hacks at the Leaf Bar the night before Maker Faire New York.

Saturday, September 22nd:

6:00pm – 9:00pm: DIY Content Creators meetup

Hosted by Make Jagger

Where: Mikkeller Brewing NYC, 123-01 Roosevelt Ave, Flushing, NY 11368

8:00pm – 12:00am: NY Maker Faire After Party

It’s Saturday night at Maker Faire NY and Manhattan is…too darn far! So we’re hanging out at the only rooftop bar in Flushing with a gorgeous view of the city skyline.

MatterHackers, BuildTak, and Fillamentum invite you to a casual cocktail meetup just 10 minutes from Maker Faire. Bring your friends and “make” new ones (…see what we did there?) as we celebrate Maker Faire!

Miasma: Classic Dual Voice Eurorack Synthesizer Module

Miasma is a pure analog oscillator module based on the Curtis CEM3340 chips used in legendary ’80s synths, with new & innovative signal patching:Screenshot from 2018-02-17 12-51-02.png

Miasma: Classic Dual Voice Eurorack Synthesizer Module

We designed the Miasma Voltage Controlled Oscillator (VCO) to bring that classic ’80s synthesizer sound back to Eurorack modular systems. We just couldn’t find any currently available oscillators with the sound textures and capabilities that we wanted, so we had to design our own; and now you get to own one as well.  

There are many unique capabilities built into Miasma that you won’t find in any other oscillator module, like the built-in patching and cross modulation structures that make Miasma so flexible in your rack. However, it’s all about the sound – so let’s start with some Miasma audio samples, before we go into the technical details of how we make that sound possible (best listening with Headphones!)

Vectrex cartridge board

From Frank Buss on hackaday.io:

Vectrex cartridge

This is my first version of a PCB for building a Vectrex cartridge. I used this for my Kickstarter project for the Bloxorz game. The PCB was manufactured by @oshpark , you can order your board here.

It fits in this 3D printed case from Thingiverse (you can order it here in my Shapeways shop), or in one of the nice new injection molded cartridge shells from Sean Kelly

Frank has launched a Kickstarter campaign:

FrankBuss has shared the board on OSH Park:

NeuroBytes: Electronic Neuron Simulators

From on the Hackaday blog:

Real-Life Electronic Neurons

NeruroBytes is not a strange platform for neural nets. It’s physical neurons, rendered in PCBs and Molex connectors. Now, finally, it’s a Kickstarter project, and one of the more exciting educational electronic projects we’ve ever seen.

Screenshot from 2017-11-19 22-07-41.png

Regular Hackaday readers should be very familiar with NeuroBytes. It began as a project for the Hackaday Prize all the way back in 2015. There, it was recognized as a finalist for the Best Product,

Since then, the team behind NeuroBytes have received an NHS grant, they’re certified Open Source Hardware through OSHWA, and there are now enough NeuroBytes to recreate the connectome of a flatworm. It’s doubtful the team actually has enough patience to recreate the brain of even the simplest organism, but is already an impressive feat.

The highlights of the NeuroBytes Kickstarter include seven different types of neurons for different sensory systems, kits to test the patellar reflex, and what is probably most interesting to the Hackaday crowd, a Braitenberg Vehicle chassis, meant to test the ideas set forth in Valentino Braitenberg’s book, Vehicles: Experiments in Synthetic Psychology. If that book doesn’t sound familiar, BEAM robots probably do; that’s where the idea for BEAM robots came from.
