Reel-to-Reel Restoration

I was recently gifted a fancy old-timey reel-to-reel audio player and a pile of reels which go with it. After some fiddling, disassembly, more fiddling, giving up, more fiddling, cleaning, and eventually finding the right spring that needs a bit more pressure, we got it to make some noise that roughly resembles a slightly too-fast or too-slow version of the things on the reels. Here’s some pictures of it. Hopefully we can do something exciting with it in the future.

Deven recently acquired an Atari 800XL used online. It had poor RF video quality, so he decided to mod it to use S-Video out instead. Here’s some pics of the aforementioned mad genius at work:

The Founders’ Wall

We’ve added a new feature to the Transistor this weekend. The Wall of Founders, which prominently displays the founding members of the Transistor, autographed and rasterbated for all the world to see.

Why, yes. Tesla was a founding member. Why do you ask?

February into March

Hey everyone! We’re still here hacking away. We’ve had 4 Arduino nights and two Make:SLC meetings since our last main page post. We’re still busy with assorted projects, and having a good time. Keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming events. Arduino Night is every Saturday from 5-8PM, so come on down and bring your projects. You should also look for some changes to the website involving custom mouse pads and ordering Minimalist Arduinos for our long-distance followers in the near future. Anyways, here’s some pictures of our exploits from the past month.

Minimalist Arduino Kits Are Out!

We have finished making and assembling the Minimalist Arduino kits. We have a whole page devoted to these little guys, so please have a look:

Those of you who have been anxiously waiting to get your hands on one should come down to our festivities this weekend: Arduino Night, and the monthly Make:SLC Meeting. We’ll be showing them off at both, so feel free to stop by. As always, bring your projects down to show or work on. We hope to see you this Saturday!

Arduino Night Recap

As many of you know, our second weekly Arduino night happened yesterday. It was another great success. We had some new people drop in, and had a generally good time working on projects using Arduinos and other electronics. We’ll be doing it all again next Saturday, so please stop by to check us out. Bring along any projects you’d like to work on or show off, or just come down and see what we’re about.

Moving In

We’re continuing to unpack and organize our considerable pile of electronics and other fun toys. Here’s a picture of some new desks we are moving into. If you squint real close you can also see one of our minimalist Arduinos on a breadboard. We hope to have them ready for mass programming and testing this weekend.
