It has been a busy couple of months

So it looks like the Maker Shed Store is going to start selling my Open Heart Kit in short order. It will be debuting at the Maker Faire in Austin this month on the 18-19th. It should be a ton of fun, and I’m looking forward to it! I’ve been quite busy filling out an order of some magnitude for them (it’s large for me anyhow). So come by and say hello if you are there, I’ll be in the actual Maker Shed Store booth.

The other major thing I’ve been working on, is helping out with the new Willoughby and Baltic hacker/fabrication community. It’s a very exciting time in the Boston area now that there is a place that you can bend, weld, saw, paint, etch, solder and DIY just about anything out there.

We were featured in the Globe this Saturday, and I’m featured in one of the pictures. They even wrote a bit about me: “Across from Beauregard, Jimmie Rodgers connected a toy guitar to a toy megaphone to make weird feedback. He likes to play with noise.” I couldn’t agree more.

On top of all of that, my responsibilities at my day job has increased a good deal. So I’ve been doing some higher level tasks and the like. Which has taken some of my free time as well.

Unfortunately, I’ve not really done much recently project-wise. I’ve only made a simple RGB mood lamp, and partially bent an Easy Button. I’ve figured out a way to get the easy button to loop with a simple transistor circuit, which I will release online once it is in proper shape to show people.

Once Maker Faire is over, you can expect to see a few new project from me. I’ll have some free time again I hope, and I’ll post some new things.
