@Ron_Ron, I have a hackable xbox 360 to donate to this project for the gaming aspect, if you think it could help. I would like to see this set up somewhere people can play it every hack night. I am really missing @derpko’s arcade cabinet.
I have been getting feedback from some people that the space is seeming to go in a more art oriented way lately. I think some people are feeling a bit put off. The work that has gone into getting the clay space up and running has taken over a lot of the administrative capacity, but seeing that this project is essentially delivered (thanks @Vaughn and ClaySpaceer’s!), and represents an incredible new capacity for the Makerspace, I am looking forward to seeing more of a technical focus in the coming months. And trying to incorporate the technical aspects of what we do to the second floor. @Ron_Ron, your work and collaborations are a great example of this succeeding already!
Projects like this represent a great opportunity to engage people in developing a bunch of great skills, in a really interesting projects, that should have an incredible final product.
Thanks for your help with the Arduino work for BCLC, and the support you have given me in developing materials for other purposes. I look forward to hosting a couple of Arduino workshops for the membership in the coming months, and I hope it will work with your schedule to coordinate on these.
To anyone who feels that the focus has shifted at the Kamloops Makerspace, I would say that our makerspace is what we make it. I am happy to coordinate with anyone who has an idea to host a workshop, and isn’t quite sure where to get started.
Thanks @Ron_Ron, thanks all!
