On Thursday, October 22nd the Doug Baldwin of the Piscataway Library’s Make it Yourself space hosted the NJ Makers Consortium for a Circuit Tiles workshop.  If you are not familiar with circuit tiles, they individual blocks that contain either a: power supply, switch, or light/fan/etc.  Makers can use the blocks to create simple and more complex circuits by connecting the power supply to various switch and light/fan blocks.  They are a DIY version of Little Bits.  We had a great time learning to solder (for those of us who had not done so since middle school tech/wood shop!) and getting our blocks to work.
