This is what I'm making

Early last year, I got involved in the planning stages of Quelab because I liked the idea of having a coworking space in Albuquerque. While I’m still mostly involved with the coworking side of Quelab, hanging around people putting together great projects for the last few months has been inspiring, so I decided make something of my own for LED night. I picked up a Peggy 2LE kit from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories. If it works properly, I should be able to make it do cool things like this when it’s done. But that’s a big if: this project involves lots of soldering (there are 625 LEDs alone) and I have very little experience soldering. It’s a little intimidating, but I’m the type of person that likes to dive off the deep end. In any case, I’m sure it will be a good learning experience. I’ll be working on it on Sunday’s Hacknight. Feel free to come on down and give me some moral support or, better yet, some pointers on soldering.

    Indeed it is daunting I would personally like a few days to do something like this. But by row two of the led’s i suspect you will have it pretty well down.

    I too will be there to help and finalize some sort of mounting for the pov wheel, and other props.

    We need a few other folks to commit to helping tidy up the place before the 27th, when we hold the Ignite-NM Presentation prep meeting. and ofcourse the LED Party!
