7608 N Interstate Ave.
Portland, Oregon 97217, US (map)

Access Notes

If you arrive and have a hard time finding someone, head over to ctrlh.org/irc and ask. Someone there should be able to help.



In this workshop we will build a "kicking legs" Halloween prop. These props are normally put under lawnmowers to simulate a lawn care accident. This project is based on a project by "Scary Terry", you can see the original here: (http://www.scary-terry.com/kicklegs/kicklegs.htm). We'll play with linkages, servos, and microcontrollers.

Here's a quick video of the mechanism (not final): https://vimeo.com/139862333
