I will be giving a talk on circuit bending at the Next Hope conference this month. The talk will be Friday night at 9:00pm on Saturday. I will then be running a circuit bending workshop immediately afterwards. It will be from 10-ish PM till whenever in the hardware hacking village. To attend the workshop, you will either need to pre-register here ($25, includes everything), or show up with an Easy Button and $15 in hand. I’m only going to bring about 10 Easy Buttons over the pre-registration, so I can’t guarantee you’ll get one. I will have all other parts needed for as many people as the hardware hacking village can hold.
The talk will cover not only a bit about what circuit bending is, but what it has been, and what it will be in the future. I will also go over some common exploits so that attendees will be able to leave the talk with a solid understanding of where to start, as well as what parts are needed. I will also be going over what toys to look for, and how to find ones that are ripe for exploits.
It looks like I only managed to get a grand total of 11 Easy Buttons from Staples. Also, since there is a bending concert on Saturday night, I’m not going to hold the workshop afterwards. That would just be unfair to the people who want to go to the concert (like me The new time will be Sunday from 13:00 till you finish.
Your best bet is to either pre-register here or show up with an easy button and $20. I would suggest you go outside of Manhattan, as I’ve already bought all of the ones near the conference center. Although, there are supposedly 6 in the Staples in Pen Station, but I couldn’t find it, and nobody seemed to know where it was located. If you can find it, then you’ll be all set.
