Participants will learn to build and program their own game controller, which they can use to play TetrisÂ® and other classic video games on the Cira Centre replica.
Participants will learn to solder as they assemble their own controller made from laser cut and 3D printed parts. Using an Arduino, each individual will program the controller to talk to the replica over a USB cable. Once the class is complete, the controller can be taken home and used with any PC to replace the keyboard for basic games.
The workshop will be followed by an open demo for the public and tours of NextFab facility starting at 4:00pm. Invite your friends and show off your creations. Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.
