MakerDojo is a hardware focused club encouraging the general public to explore science and technology in hands-on "hacker" style workshops inspired by the growing Maker movement, a worldwide community of hobbyists, students and enthusiasts who take a creative, DIY approach to technology, science and engineering.
MakerDojo fosters experimentation, collaboration and innovation and aims towards a culture of inventors.
Our next event is Tilt! on Monday September 24 at 6:30pm in Tyndall National Institute
As any pinball fiend will tell you, tilt is the bane of their game. But tilt sensors are very useful things.
From motion sensors in a mobile phone, or VR headset enabling things to move in realtime on the screen, to a drop sensor in a laptop to indicate that its falling, motion sensors have a lot of interesting uses.
And there are a lot of ways to detect it! Well explore a few and build a drowsy driver warning system. Useful with the dark evenings returning, or a streaming video binge.
Is there something that you would like to do, or get made?
Do you have a favourite workshop from earlier... or do you want something new?
We're open to ideas and trying things out... So...
Do you have any ideas for projects to share? Something you really want to see getting made?
Email us, or contact us on Twitter, or drop in a message to the Tyndall National Institute.
Looking forward to hearing from you...
