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 https://www.instagram.com/p/BnuZB5vFlpq/
Here’s a list of meetups that may be of interest to those that are in New York for World Maker Faire week and weekend:
Thursday, September 20th:
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!
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.
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:
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:
Hosted by Make Jagger
Where: Mikkeller Brewing NYC, 123-01 Roosevelt Ave, Flushing, NY 11368
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!
Look for our Drew Fustini in purple!

Miasma is a pure analog oscillator module based on the Curtis CEM3340 chips used in legendary ’80s synths, with new & innovative signal patching:
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!)
From Frank Buss on hackaday.io:
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:
A puzzle game for the Vectrex, including a version with Vectrex graphics for PC, Mac, iOS and Android

From Brian Benchoff on the Hackaday blog:
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.
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.
This is a busy, busy week for Tindie and Hackaday. We’re going to New York, and we have a ton of events planned. First up is the monthly Hackaday meetup. This time, we’re teaming up with Kickstarter for a pre-Maker Faire Meetup. We’ll be hosting this at Kickstarter’s HQ, and already we have an impressive…

Kris Winer of Pesky Products designed these easy-to-program, high-performance and low-power dev boards:
Program an STM32L4 Cortex M4F with the Arduino IDE via USB
Technical specifications of the Butterfly and Ladybug STM32L4 dev boards:
- Microcontroller: STM32L4 ARM Cortex M4F
- Clock speed: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 24, 32, 48, 64, 80 MHz
- Operating voltage: 3.3V
- I/O pin limits: most pins 5.0 V tolerant, 20 mA
- Digital I/O pins: 22, with 11 PWM (Butterfly), 13, with 10 PWM (Ladybug)
- Analog input pins: 6 (Butterfly), 5 (Ladybug), 12-bit ADC channels
- Analog output pins: 2 12-bit DAC
- RTC: 1 ppm accuracy
- Flash memory: 256 KB
- SRAM: 64 KB
- Voltage regulator: 3.3-5.5V input / 3.3V, 150 mA output
To the left is an MPU9250 accel/gyro/magnetometer motion sensor and the BME280 pressure/humidity/temperature sensor
To the right is an ESP8266 wifi-enabled add-on board for Butterfly
Reading the BME280 and VEML6040 sensors at 0.5 Hz and outputting pressure, temperature, humidity, altitude, RGB light intensity and RTC time and date to the Sharp memory display
STM32L432 receives quaternions from the EM7180, which itself is master to the motion and pressure sensors, GNSS data from the CAM M8Q, then processes and packages the data and sends it to the ESP8285 via UART bridge for transmission to a hand-held controller
uses an STM32L433 as master to several slave sensors to detect and process signals from industrial equipment and report to a remote server via blue tooth
Paul Stoffregen of PJRC designed this shield as a Kickstarter reward earlier this year:
Please understand this shield has very limited software support at this time. However, Manitou’s early benchmarks show excellent performance we can someday hope to achieve as the software matures.
