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 "Move due to Sound" at 6:30pm Thursday May 17th in Tyndall National Institute!
Last time we had microphones to detect where to turn. However independent mics are hard to calibrate (I feel so much more impressed by live gig audio producers now).
So let’s try something that generates and listens, ultrasonic sensors. They can detect when someone is "within range" and turn that way.
Or, let’s play "look at me" with a machine.
We're also planning to go on tour this year. So, if you would like to have a MakerDojo near you, get in contact!
If you would like to make your own MakerDojo session, well, there's a guide to setting up your own MakerDojo.
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...
