Recently I was invited to do a few days of workshops as well as a talk at Austin Community College’s new campus.
I designed a simple, analog breadboard synth for it you can check out here.
Here’s the video of my talk where I discuss how I got into making devices and what things I’ve learned from 10 years of Bleep Labs.
I’ll be teaching a new workshop series for Dadageek starting next week.
The classes are designed to be an absolute beginners guide to making light and sound with analog and Arduino.
It will be once a week for 6 weeks with a final exhibition of what you create. The price is $250 and includes the materials, Arduino, bread board, components etc, that you get to keep!
Here’s a couple examples of devices I put together to show what can be done with your own circuits, not to mention all the other things I’ve created over the years….

Oh and for those who are curious, Bleep Labs isn’t going anywhere.
I’ll be doing some other projects, such as this workshop series and won’t be making any new devices for a bit. More on this soon..
Bleep Labs is having a moving sale at our current location this Saturday, Sept 3rd.
If you’re in the market for piles of electronic components, vintage whatsists, tools, office whatevers and who knows what else come by!
We’ve finished QA on the final version of the PCB and are ready to send it to production.
The first orders will start going out in about 3 weeks (mid April). In the meantime, you can pick out your noise friend’s colors!
Here are some basic combinations, but you can order any combination you’d like. In the order field just tell us:
– Sticker color (from the six options shown: Black, white, red, green, blue, or purple)
– LED color (white, red, green, blue, or yellow)
– LEDacle wire colors (Pick three from white, black, pink, red, orange, light green, green, light blue, blue, or purple)
For example, just say “Black sticker, LEDacle with a green LED, and pink, purple and yellow wires” in the comment box of your order and we’d be happy to create your own wild creature!
If you’ve already made an order email your selection to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re placing a new order there will be a comment box during checkout to put it in.
