    "Feltronics" Teachers today are facing a difficult problem with far-reaching consequences for all levels of education. One of the world’s most required skillsets is not only difficult to teach, but conceptually difficult and hard to develop a passion for. With FELTRONICS, electronics theory and design can be presented to any age with hands-on experimentation rewarded with instant feedback from a completed circuit. Large-scale discrete components are marked with IEEE standard graphics, and mounted to easy-to-manipulate felt bases. Magnets on every trace end of each part make for easy circuit completion. The benefits of this approach are many, among them familiarization with component function, basic circuit-design skills, and above-all, engaging low cost education in one of the world’s most necessary skills.

                  A quick hack to demonstrate the interaction possible with RFID cards. The speech synthesis is done with OSX's built in speech synth (the `say` command). The RFID reader just turns up as a USB HID keyboard and types the ID of the card. This is for the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge, find out more at www.buildbrighton.com

                      What are Tags?

                      Tags

                      Tags are keywords that describe videos. For example, a video of your Hawaiian vacation might be tagged with "Hawaii," "beach," "surfing," and "sunburn."
