DIY Workshops:

DIY workshops will be conducted on this website over Zoom

Please make sure you have the correct equipment. A soldering iron, solder, desoldering sucker or braid, adequate lighting and a decent webcam. We highly recommend a USB Microscope (like linked, there are many many brands, doesn't even need a very good zoom) which will allow our volunteers to assist you in troubleshooting.

Our circuit enthusiasts are volunteers. Please coordinate with your workshop leads ahead of time to be prepared, and order any parts, circuit boards and other items they specify long ahead of the event so you have everything ready when it's time to solder.

Two_comparator_effect DIY with cyberboy666

The Comparator circuit is a Posterization video effect that produces high contrast video and differentiation. The circuit is based off a circuit design by Rob Schafer and made into an open source DIY project by Tim Caldwell and the Scanlines community.

Example of the circuit in action here

Oscilloscope Graphics Artist DIY with Evan Henry @Cinema.AV

The OGA as it’s known began its life as hobbyist project in Popular Electronics in the 1970’s as a way to generate complex lissajous figures on an oscilloscope. It has since been adapted by Phil Baljeu to work in a 3U eurorack modular format and looks great on an old analog scope or modified vectrex console.
