Following suggestions we are having a project session, a bit like Howduino. Bring along your works in progress, share them with others and see if someone can help you solve that persistent problem you've been having.

We will have some soldering irons and basic tools. Let us know if there is anything else you think we need that you can't bring?

We will be in the Lifelab Junior Lab (same entrance as usual, it's just upstairs from our usual room), I'll get the usual beer etc supply lined up as well.

Bring your Arduino projects (finished or unfinished) or any physical or digital works in progress along for some group therapy.

Newcastle Centre of Life 18.30 - 22.00 on Thursday 25th November.

I've seen them in Maplins for £29, but I picked mine up from a carboot sale a couple of years ago. I fancy getting a Bigtak Jr to hack but they're priced at £29 as well, I might wait a while and pick one up cheap in the New Year sales  smiley-wink

but they sure do bring back some good memories  smiley

I only ever got to have the motors and gearbox from one, they are magnetically clutched to help it go in a straight line when both motors are running, which can also be a bit of a pain when trying to run them separately. Still makes for a convenient robot chassis that's easy to get hold of.
