Moving tT from Provo to Orem

Written by Tim on 2012-11-30 03:46 UTC

In late 2012, we moved the Transistor from Provo to Orem. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move. Here are some pictures from this time, including of the weird cat statue we glued to the ceiling before we left.


LED Cube

This is an LED cube I made from a minimalist arduino, some resistors, and a bunch of LEDs back in 2011. Not much to it really, and a couple of the LEDs are out at the moment. Not sure why. *shrug*

This is a post for the 4-player arcade cabinet d3c4f and I made back around 2011. d3c4f did most of the general idea work, and I did all the CAD work.


Zombie Laser Tag

This game was made as part of an internet video series back in late 2010. It was called the 'Take on the Machine Challenge' and pitted 5 hackerspaces against each other, to make a cool project given a donation. Unfortunately the video documentary of our work has since been taken down, and we don't have a ton of records from this time.


Gorduino - Original Blog Recreated

This is another recreated blog post from thetransistor.com. Gordo actually did all the work on this one, but I wanted to preserve this piece of tT history on my own blog for the future.


The Night We Flooded tT Provo

Written by Tim on 2010-08-18 02:30 UTC

On July 23, 2010 we installed a shiny new counter and sink in the attic of the Startup Building in Provo, where the Transistor was located. Good times were had by all, until Tuesday August 17. Around 6:30 PM I received a call drom d3c4f, who informed me that apparently the whole building was flooding, and the source was the sink we had installed and used happily for almost a month.
