I’m helping to put on Toymageddon - Toy Hacking Night this coming Wed, June 26th, at 7:30 pm, at the Vancouver Hack Space.

These Arduino Uno boards are the cutest things ever. They were donated to the Vancouver Hack Space by the awesome people at Lee’s Electronics.

I designed these buttons for the Vancouver Hack Space. They were printed by the wonderful people at Six Cent Press. If you need buttons, these are the people you should be talking to.
