Hackerspace donation box with wind tunnel, LED matrix, and music upon donations. via tin whiskers
This year, I’ve set out to create CRASH Space a donation box worthy of our hackerspace.
Obvs, the first step of any good project is coming up with a hella good idea, both in terms of electronic functionality, and style.
First, let’s talk style. Being one of the more whimsical hackerspaces, CRASH Space’s mascot is a Soldering Unicorn named Sparkles. Over the years, Sparkles has become arguably the most famous member of our hackerspace. For this project, I’m going to follow in Sparkles’ footsteps and give the donation box a My Little Pony theme.
