As per a side conversation I was having (and thinking it was on the mailing
and not direct) the following might prove interesting to anyone interested
in stopping by the space.

Not all of the projects at the space are pure hardware. Anyone is welcome
at the space with nearly any project or not project at all. We have a few
people at the space that are coders (including one retired professor of
Computer Science from Moravian College) and experience range between C,
C++, Python, and Java (I'm sure we have some PERL guys there too).

If anyone has any experience with beer brewing or interest, feel free to
stop by the space! I know it's a project we would love to get up and

Existing projects we have at the space are the following:

   - PCB Etchant tank with bubbler (making your own boards)
   - PCB toner transfer (old laser printer parts to fuse ink to copper
   boards for the tank)
   - Arduino class curriculum for the Da Vinci science center
   - Arduino based door chime (plays chip tunes of popular songs)
   - Blender based characters for a game
   - Beer chiller
   - Random destruction with capacitors (totally awesome might I add)
   - Car stereo/ computer stereo. See:
   - Lighting system for canes for blind people

If anyone has any questions, comments, feel free to shoot me an email or
hold them for Wednesday the 12th.
