Build Your Own Sumobot 2-Day Workshop


Saturday, October 22, 2011 and  Sunday, October 23, 2011

2:00 PM – 6:00 PM (ET)

Don’t have a sumobot for this years competition and Halloween party? Want to be one of the cool kids? Do not be afraid the friendly folks at LVL1 are here to help.

Learn the basics of building a Sumobot! It’s a small autonomous 10cmX10cm robot that doesn’t like sharing the ring. More information about Sumobot competitions can be found here.

This workshop takes place over 2 afternoons; Saturday and Sunday. 2pm -6pm The workshop will cover soldering, construction, and programming of your own sumobot.
A laptop is required for both days for assembly and programming.

All parts, tools and equipment needed to build it will be provided. If you already have a FTDI cable for programming the microcontroller, you can save $15 with that ticket option. If you do not have this cable, purchase the full ticket including FTDI cable. A FTDI cable is common with Arduino variants and is very reusable.

10 total seats are available. Sign ups are open

Laser Cut Gear Clock – with ChronoDot!


I just finished programming my gearclock that I showed off last week.  I added a Chronodot real time clock so it keeps perfect time!  I also wrote up an instructable here: so you can build your own.  I also have some stepper motors if you want to buy them from me (cheap!).  Put your Arduino to work!  Learn how to use the lasercutter!  Brian
