Workshop: Solder and hack the Nanode!

Featured 2

OptimaLabs is organizing its first workshop! It will take place this weekend in Berlin. You can come on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. Description below:

Build your own Arduino clone, then program it to send your blood alcohol level to your smartphone (We can test this at the Makerplatz Afterparty)

The possibilities offered by Nanode are unlimited: you can connect sensors to the internet (pachube for example), you can remote control servos, motors, lights, robots via internet, etc).
