      electronic!

      Dorkbot meetings will be taking place on the first

      Project and will bepresenting info about the concept
      and state of the project. RepRap isshort for
      Replicating Rapid-prototyper. The project is an
      initiativeaimed at creating a largely self-replicating
      machine which can be usedfor rapid prototyping and
      manufacturing. A rapid prototyper is a 3Dprinter that

      Also building xoscope circuits!

      Xoscope circuits are a buffer+amplifier circuits which
      will enable youto use your computer's sound card as an
      oscilloscope. (An oscilloscopeis a tool that
      measures, records, and graphs the voltage in
      anelectrical circuit.) This circuit may be helpful as
      a buffer/amplifierfor circuit bending as well.

      Andrew O'Malley will be presenting updates on a
      project he is workingon with Ken Campbell developing a
      new easier to use I/O Board forartists.
      Normand Fisher will be demonstrating some of his
      custom builtmicrophones.
      Fred Arsenault will demonstrate techniques for
      databending in digitalphotography.
      When the ground thaws Michael Caffrey will demonstrate
