From Evil Mad Scientist blog:
I’m excited to be hosting an “Ask a Maker!” panel at Maker Faire New York. The panel will be on Saturday, September 22 at 3:30 pm on the Make: Frontiers stage. My guests will include Jimmy DiResta, Sophy Wong, and Matt Stultz.
I’ll be accepting audience questions for these amazing makers with a broad range of skills and experiences. If you have questions but aren’t going to be at Maker Faire NY, you can submit them in the comments here, or send them to me by email. Questions about aspects of making including processes, tools, inspiration, sourcing, design, and techniques are all welcome. I’ll accept questions about genres of making including electronics, woodworking, sewing, digital fabrication, papercraft, writing, video making, cooking and more.
The rest of the schedule of performances and talks looks amazing, and there is a great group of makers showing their projects as well. Hope to see you there!
LOCATION: Zone 3 in Make: Electronics by Digi-Key
TIME: Saturday, September 22, 2:30 pm – 2:45 pm
Add weird, changeable textures to your next project with the WEFT electrovibration library and dev board.
We’ll go over the fundamentals behind the texture effect, how the circuit is built, and how best to design textures and electrodes for working with this radical haptics technology.
