Learn on Gadget Hacks and Making Things

A Typical Hardware Hobby Enthusiast is a Hacker when he starts learning, it is sometimes given the name of reverse engineering in another context. The Hardware Hobby Freelance hacker is better off, he is doing it for Learning and Education. Students should be given new and challenging projects in well equipped labs, to augment their skills and make them productive in their jobs from day one.

Hobby DIY Electronics and Making Things at delabs

We all learn by breaking up things, to see how it works, then Fix things around Home etc. Later Create and Innovate perhaps, thats the way to go. To Invent something someday.

Circuit Diagrams Archives Reference

Here are some people doing just that, inspire you to create useful things for your Home. We should never become over dependent on others for everything, this will erode our knowledge base, skills and freedom.

MakerSpace Hackerspace and TinkerSpace

I am using the word MakerSpace for the same Hackerspace. I would rather call them plain TinkerSpace, where youngsters take apart, fix, build Hardware, Software, Webware, Robots and Machines.


Sony used to get the abandoned ww2 radios in the islands to design, make and sell their first radio units. Honda used to fix bikes from europe and america to gain the skills and mutate to a global giant. Take apart, reverse engineer, fix and learn.

Hackerspaces are community-operated physical places, where people can meet and work on their projects.This website is for 'Anyone and Everyone' who wants to share their hackerspace with international hacker's'paces.

Every kid is a born hacker and he starts with his toys, his mom does not like that, but he does not stop. One day he is building something pretty big.

Dallas Makerspace Wiki - Membership based, non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory.

Milwaukee Makerspace - Social club for people who like build, invent, tinker and/or collect new skills and expand their minds.

In the late nineties and the early 2000. There were Hobby DIY Groups, Ham Radio Groups and Learning Electronics Communities. Hackerspaces by function, may be as old as technology itself. People working in a garage or shop to learn skills or build-invent something, but with different names like "Metal Tinkering Club" etc..

Recently the people at Make created a more organized and sustainable movement, that is helping the "MakerSpace" Phenomenon Emerge - Makezine - MAKE brings the do-it-yourself mindset to all the technology in your life.

Dallas Personal Robotics Group - DPRG

Articles, Photo Gallery, Projects, RoboLinks, Tutorials, Here you can share and exchange solutions and ideas about the exquisite art of Robot Design and Building.

Dallas Personal Robotics Group - DPRG

DPRG members have created some tips and howto for the common issues faced by robot builders.
DPRG Projects

After 7 years in the Garland warehouse, the DPRG is searching for a new home. The new plan is to try the hackerspace model, combining grants, donations, and membership fees to fund a fully equipped community workshop.

Ron of DPRG is using the "Rarey Technique" for Taming a Wild Robot that went Berserk. ;-)

Establishing a Dallas Maker Space
Every robot needs sensors of some type to interact with the world around it. Infrared LEDs and Infrared photo detectors are one way to detect objects, but they are easily foiled by surrounding ambient light.

IR Proximity Detector by Jeff Koenig, August 1998

"Proximity sensors are commonly used on mobile robots for obstacle avoidance. This article presents a simple PIC-based, modulated infrared proximity sensor with dual angled transmitters and single receiver."

NYC Resistor - Hack Build Learn DIY Electronics

NYC Resistor is a hacker collective with a shared space located in downtown Brooklyn. The NYC Resistor Microcontroller Mailing List is a great place to meet others with the same interest...

NYC Resistor - Hack Build Learn DIY Electronics

"In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to use a soldering iron safely and effectively, and get plenty of practice with both soldering and desoldering techniques. We'll be soldering up some Game of Life kits - LED tiles that generate nifty animations."

Intro to Soldering Workshop

NYC Resistor - Hack Build Learn DIY Electronics

Other Classes Examples -

"We’ll learn to program an Arduino and interact with the physical world! This class covers an introduction to Arduino, including how to use light sensors, LEDs, buzzers, and more."

"Turn almost anything into a musical instrument with Teensy, an inexpensive Arduino-compatible microcontroller. The Teensy 3.2 has a bunch of touch sensors and analog and digital inputs,.."
