The Michigan Makers tackling sewing had a lot of questions about how sewing machines work. UMSI mentor Kelsey found a cool video that shows how stitches are made. Check it out below!
We were glad to have Maya's dad, Mr. M., helping out again, this time with formatting a Raspberry Pi and assembling it. It is an awesome feeling to see the big raspberry icon on your screen, because it means you did it -- and it takes most of the 90 minutes to do it! Do you know why Raspberry Pis have green circuit boards? What it means when your Raspberry Pi boots up and shows you a # sign and not a $ sign or a desktop? Ask Mr. M.!
We also took a mockup of the Fall 2013 book Raspberry Pi for a test drive ... hmmm ... we think we found a mistake in it. Good thing we can catch that before it goes to print!
We added the photo below to our Flickr photo stream. Want to see what else Michigan Makers were working on today? You'll have to wait for the video team to work its magic!
