Come to SCALE 14x Game night
Come play games and make friends with open-hardware and open-source enthusiast. There is so much planned for this fun packed social: Pool, Air Hockey, Vintage Video Games, Board Games, Nerf Artillery. Plus a Mini Quadcopter black light obstacle course, flying alien globes, and a Mini RC Motorcycle Racetrack.
Want to come hang out, but not so into games? Don't worry, there's also FIVE THOUSAND SQUARE FEET of special surprises curtained off in the exhibit hall which involves friendly strolling, and we promise, no computers whatsoever. There's even a Movie Theater where you can put your feet up.
This year, you'll get to enjoy the first ever SCALE Museum. The theme is Rise of the Machines: A Living Timeline. This is a display of historic engineering, computing devices, and other clever gadgets. If you have a vintage electronic item or geeky gadget you'd like to show off contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: There is a special Family Hour from 8-9pm. If you want to miss the kids party, general admission is from 9 pm until Midnight, otherwise bring the little ones and enjoy.
Hackaday Show & Tell at SCALE 14x Game Night - Bring your projects!
Got an open-source or game themed project to share with SCALErs? We really want to see them. Have a mini quadcopter you'd like to race, a black light interactive piece, or ground RC vehicles, get in touch with me!
Very small things you can bring on the night, but if you have RC or larger items, please email me with a few details of your project in advance - email@example.com. We need to know so we can arrange access, a great spot; plus there are some venue restrictions, and we don't want you to be disappointed.
