Do all your Christmas wrapping with plenty of space and materials

//

gift_wrap_stressWrap presents at LVL1! Come and use plenty of table space. BYOB / food. We’ll put on some tunes and enjoy wrapping sessions a lot more than hiding in a bedroom alone- or donate a little more and have someone else wrap for you. We have elegant, cute, shiny and other types of paper.

Make it fun and wrap your gifts before you take them home ūüėÄ

Black Friday – 11 -29 2 pm – 10 pm
Sunday 12-1-2013 3 – 5:30 pm
Sunday 12-8 3- 5:30 pm
Saturday Dec 14 2 – 10 pm
Sunday 12-22 3 – 5:30 pm
Tuesday – 12-24, Christmas EVE – 6 pm – 11:30 pm – Also a great place to assemble things as there are all sorts of tools here!

You must park on the street or in the “ORI” lot behind the building. You must enter the building in the back/in the alley.

If you come, turn from Broadway onto Shelby (Shelby only goes one way – away from town) – there is an alley immediately on your left. Pass that and turn into the nextz entrance into the parking lot that says ORI. Walk from the parking lot into the alley. Turn right and take about forty steps. You should see a door on your left that says LVL1.

Due to all the equipment and tools here, you must sign a waiver of liability to enter.

Sumobot Workshop – Friday, 10/4!

SUMOBOT

 

On Friday, October 4th, LVL1’s own Brian Wagner will be teaching a workshop on Sumobot Construction and programming! ¬†Brian spent his summer vacation designing and prototyping the “BaxterBot” board, a circuitboard which drives motors, IR sensors, sonar, and many, many more, and is Arduino compatible! ¬†For a mere $60, you get all the electronics you’ll need for a Sumobot! Chassis isn’t included, but you have full access to the LVL1 boneyard, and all the tools you could need to make your own.

Sign up here: https://lvl1sumo2013.eventbrite.com/

Only 9 seats remain as of this writing, so hurry up.

All you need to bring is a laptop and your imagination. ¬†Don’t know how to solder? Not a problem! ¬†This is the workshop you need to get ready for LVL1’s 4th annual SumoBot competition and Halloween party!

Raspberry Pi Roadshow Visit – August 9th – 6:00 PM

Rob Bishop from the Pi Foundation

 

RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/LVL1Hackerspace/events/132132342/

LVL1 is very proud to be hosting Rob Bishop from the Raspberry Pi foundation for a visit to Louisville on August 9th, at 6 PM!

This month, Rob will be traveling through the US, taking a look at all the cool Raspberry Pi projects people are working on, talking about the Pi and the work of the Pi foundation, and doing live demos.  More information about his itinerary is right here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/4312

In case you haven’t heard of the Raspberry Pi before: The Raspberry Pi is a $35 credit-card sized computer module running Linux. ¬†With Ethernet and USB outputs, you’ve got a very nice computer in a very small package. ¬†People have used the Pi on projects as diverse as home entertainment PCs, Carputers, Robots, UAVs, Vending Machines, Access Control Systems, and so much more.

Come on down to LVL1 on August 9th for this completely free event! Bring your Pi and any Pi projects you’ve been working on! Show off all the cool stuff that you’ve done with your Pi, or would like to do! Tons of like-minded folks will be hanging around, fawning over Rob. Don’t have a Raspberry Pi? No problem! We’ll have Pis for sale before, during, and after the event!

If you plan to come out, please RSVP on our Meetup Page: http://www.meetup.com/LVL1Hackerspace/events/132132342/ (Not required, but it helps us gauge interest!)

TL;DR РSign up here: http://www.eventbrite.com/event/7404548203  Do it now, because ticket sales end on the 27th!

LVL1 is proud to host a Raspberry Pi Bootcamp on July 31st, at 6:30pm. ¬†This workshop will go through the basics of hooking up a Raspberry Pi and getting it up and running, using the wonderful Adafruit Raspberry Pi Starter Pack. ¬†Pick your ticket, with or without Pi, and come to LVL1 on July 31st. ¬†You need only bring your laptop! ¬†We’ll go through the basics of hooking up the Raspberry Pi, loading an image onto the SD card, booting the Pi for the first time, and getting it blinking. ¬†If you’re curious about this exciting physical computing platform, this is a great excuse to pick it up!

What timing, also! ¬†LVL1 is on the proposed route of the Raspberry Pi Foundation’s American Pi Roadshow. Tentatively, they’ll be stopping by on August 9th! This will be a great kick in the pants for your latest embedded project, which you can then show off to all the Pi fanatics in the Louisville area!

Seating is limited to 15, and ticket sales will end on the 27th so we have enough time to buy the kits.  Tell all your fiends, and get ready for a slice of Pi! The evenbrite link is here:  http://www.eventbrite.com/event/7404548203
