On May 6, we got together in a sunlit room on the 10th floor of Red Hat Tower to play with open hardware. We had a few laptops, an Arduino, and most of the materials to make a light-up backpack. We had the wrong size needle for the conductive thread—it's thick! Plus, a LulzBot 3D printer was on display; we oogled over a collection of items with it. So, we'll share more about that next week. Stay tuned!
