What: Magic Mirror Workshop
When: Sunday, 14 April, 10:00am - 2:00pm
Cost: $35.00 (+$1.49 processing fee)

Magic Mirrors (sometimes called smart mirrors) place a video screen behind a semi-transparent mirror so that information shows through the mirror as a sort of ghostly image as you look at it. Google it on Bing -- they're way cooler than I just made them sound.

When we hosted our first Magic Mirror workshop a couple years ago it proved to be one of our most popular events. So we're doing another one! (Also, we have some old monitors sitting around the space that we want to clear out before The Purge! and this is a great way to put them to use.) You'll need to provide your own Raspberry Pi 3, but we'll provide a screen, cable, and mirror material. Follow the Eventbrite link below for a complete list of needed and provided materials.

Tickets are $36.49 ($35.00 + $1.49 processing fee) through Eventbrite. [Click here for details or to purchase.]

You do not need to be a member to attend this event or use our equipment to make cool things. (But there must be a member present for you to work in the space.) Anyone entering LVL1 for the first time must sign a waiver of liability. (There's a kiosk right inside the door.)

What: Laser cutter and Vinyl cutter workshop
When: Saturday, 23 March 2019, 12:00noon - 1:00pm
Cost: Free

Ned will teach briefly how to use both the big laser cutter and the vinyl cutter, with more time spend on either depending on crowd interest. Time will not be devoted on a related topic: "how to generate an SVG file to bring to either piece of equipment"; instead the focus will be specifically in the proprietary software that belongs with each piece of equipment and how to setup the hardware.

When: Tuesday, 5 March 2019, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Many of you have been asking for training on the ShopBot, our large CNC router. You must complete a training class like this one to be approved to use this large (and very expensive) machine. Join past president Brian W. before the open meeting for this introductory class.

Bring a laptop computer if you have one. (It's helpful, but not required.)
