Tonight is kit night at Dorkbot-sea. We sold kits for building solar theremins, tv-b-gones, and BEAM "robots". We wanted to raise some funds to buy tools for our gracious hosts at the 911 Media Arts Center (who "coincidentally" are running the Arduino class I am teaching). That was a complete success, and we now have 10 shiny new soldering irons, third hands, breadboards, and some basic hand tools. We are going to be using them tonight to put the kits together, and then they go to 911 for classes and workshops (and hopefully future Dorkbot meetings).
Oh and it looks like my motor control made the Make blog!
