Welcome to the Glasgow Open Source Hardware group.
We are a friendly group with and interested in building open source hardware centred round arduino board. ( An arduino is an easily programmable hardware interface capable of being the electronic brain for lots of things, robots, lightboxs, flight machines). What can be done is only limited by your imagination (well almost).
We have an number of proposed projects
Reprap . A reprap is a 3d printer, it has been getting more capable over the last few years though there is lots of development to do. The central idea of a rep rap is that it should be able to build its self as well as lots of over things, coat-hangers, door stops, really anything you can think of.
Music created using an arduino board.
We a considering also building a quad copter. Something like this http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/aeroquadan-arduinopowered
Anything else you might like to do.
We meet regularly on Thursdays in the electron club. We try to make it the first and third Thursday of the month, if this is is possible. The calendar of meetings here. We have discussions for arduinos, repraps, or what ever else you wish to discuss. Or just say hello.
