The Hardware Hacking Village will be a special area of the conference where attendees can learn about hardware hacking and the basic concepts of electrical engineering, including surface-mount soldering and circuit design. Sponsored by the LA hackerspace, Null Space Labs, there will be volunteers on hand demonstrating how to assemble this year’s badge and a number of other electronics projects. This year’s badges (both attendee and speaker) will be electronic, but you have to assemble them in the hardware hacking village!
At LayerOne we want you to get down and dirty with hardware hacking. Learn how to surface mount solder and use the plethora of equipment available! The Hardware Hacking Village has top of the line Metcal soldering irons, ovens, hotplates, solder dispenser syringes with automatic solder paste feeders, thru hole, scopes, meters, power supplies, and more! The Hardware Hacking Village is also the perfect place to plan, assemble, and fix your HeboCon Robot Battle entry!
