Pumping Station One: Chicago’s Hackerspace

April 7, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

Not enough good things can be said about Pumping Station One, as they do everything from hobbyists and professionals tinkering around with microprocessors, to “Knitting for Hackers” on Monday nights, to the blinkie workshop below. I see lots of startups that are straight-laced professionals with hard-core business models, yet try hard to appear laidback, hip and offering an environment of innovation. But Hackerspace, probably due to their not-for-profit status and core objective of being a place to explore ideas … really is a laidback, hip environment where innovation and playfulness is in the air. So their schedule of cool things is here, and blinkie workshop this Saturday is below.

On the heels of Mitch Altman’s Circuit Hacking and Soldering Workshop on Thursday, we’d like to welcome to Dale and Dwayne of 2dkits.com, teaching a blinkies workshop this Saturday, April 9, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Straight from the source:

Build-A-Blinkie is where you get a kit (circuit board, LEDs, and other electronic parts) and solder them together to make a working blinkie. Basically, a little board with blinking lights.  You can proudly wear your very own blinkie as a pin or attach it to a lanyard as a necklace, or just put it on a shelf and let others admire your technical abilities.

We bring eleven unique blinkie kits to choose from, soldering stations, lights, and everything else necessary to build your blinkie.  The ability to solder is not required, and we provide as much or as little assistance as is needed.

We’ve been doing this for over 10 years now. Thousands of folks of all ages have been building blinkies – many of them who have never soldered before. We guarantee you will leave with a working blinkie!
