About

Makerbot09 (by Dick Koolish) My name is Jimmie Rodgers, and I am a full time hacker, maker, artist, musician, circuitbender, etc. I design open source hardware kits, as well as teach a variety of workshops, and give talks on topics that interest me. Basically I travel around the world, and then do/make/teach anything I have interest in. Please subscribe to my blog if you find any of my stuff interesting. You can also follow me on twitter for more day to day information.

I currently sell three kits, which you can purchase through this website. The Open Heart v2.0 is a LED array that you can easily create animations for. The Atari Punk Console is a simple and fun sound generator. The LoL Shield is an Arduino shield with lots of LEDs on it. Check out the kits section for more information.

I travel and run workshops quite a bit. If you would like me to run a workshop for your group, then please contact me. Even if it isn’t in the greater Boston area, we may be able to work something out.

You can generally catch me at Artisan’s Asylum, which is a 40,000 sq ft artist/hacker/maker collective in Somerville, MA. Simply put, we make cool things. The people there are wonderful, and you should absolutely support such a community in any way you can.
