Arduino, Open Hardware, Maker & Connected Devices (IoT)

Welcome! We are group of hardware and maker enthusiasts based in the Minneapolis / St. Paul, Minnesota area. Our monthly meetings involve networking, tutorials and learning everything we can about Open Hardware, Makers and Connected Devices (IoT) projects from each other.


Our next monthly meeting is December 3rd @ 6:30, with presentations at 6:45. The meeting this month is held at Keller Hall in room #3-111.

So we have an accurate count, please be sure and register HERE!

Lon Koeing is back this month to show us 2 new cool projects he's been working on!

  • Halloween 2015 Builds #1: A "candle" lighting effect using Arduino and a neopixel ring. Looks cool and can be assembled and programmed in 1/2 hour by a novice!
  • Halloween 2015 Build #2: A funky steampunk top hat that features one on Phil Burgess's creepy eyes in the top.
  • Many of the teams that competed in the Internet of Things HackDay held last month will share what they built, why they built it, what issues they ran into that day and how we can improve the competition next year.
