Title: No Hamvention stories or pics ??
Post by: KC9ONY on May 26, 2013, 08:09:40 AM
So does anyone have any interesting stories or pictures from the Hamvention?
I don't need ALL the details, but maybe something that you bought, haggled, traded?
Any interesting characters you took pictures of?   

I know, I know...if I would have gone this year, I'd have stories and pics of my own!

I had a good time and enjoyed the fairly decent weather this year.  Saturday morning the buildings got a bit crowded when it was raining but otherwise it wasn't to bad.

I picked up a few odds and ends and a LED 4x4x4 cube powered by an Arduino compatible controller called the Rainbowduino (http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/rainbowduino-led-driver-platform-atmega-328-p-371.html).  I haven't built it yet but I'll post pictures when I do.

I also picked up a tabletop gaming console that runs 60 arcade games from the 80's.  My favorite game was Galaga.
