Special Event–Calling All Audiophiles

Thursday, November 12, 2015 at Maui Makers 6 to 9 PM

200 Waiehu Beach Rd, Upstairs

Steve Griffin from Boeing has offered to preview his class on using the SigmaDSP board.

This class has several interesting aspects:

A group tutorial setting up a noise canceling system to eliminate background noise. This is similar to the system used in expensive noise canceling headphones. It can also be used to reduce noise in building ventilation systems.

The Sigma DSP board here. This cute little board is specially built for audio processing and can be used to optimize your soundscape and compensate for noise or limitations of your equipment and environment.

A tutorial on Sigma Studio, a graphical programming environment that is used to program this board. It can also be used to program SHARC processors.

Save the Environment and Learn a Skill!

Creative Commons Recycling Symbol

We are wiring the E-lab and need your help Sunday, 14th of June 2015, noon-4pm!

Learn Something New

Learn how to attach the Ethernet connectors to cables to create a cable of arbitrary length. The tools and instructions are provided. The main requirement is that you not be colorblind, so you can identify the color-coded wires.

Save the Environment

We have some donated computers and other electronics that we need to get working. Help us test them and take them apart to salvage the useful parts, and then we’ll rebuild what we can and e-cycle what we cannot use (or do you have an up-cycling project in mind?).

These are good tasks to do while your waiting for adhesives to set, or 3D printed parts to be completed.

We’ve got the power into the electronics lab, so look for it to open soon.

The space is starting to get a good roster of activities going on.

Look for our Menehune Makers children’s program soon.

Our Up 3D printer is now working, so we’re up to 2 printers. Shapeoko CNC is coming along nicely, and we’ll be offering training on safe use of power tools.

On the business front, board member elections are coming up and we’re inviting qualified members of the community to help carry the torch forward. Look for more info soon.
