Flipdot started September 2009 and rented a very nice room in a former shoe workshop. We lost this room in winter 2010 because of a tango group which was able to pay much more than we.

Since November 2011 we have new rooms again in Sickingenstrasse 10 in Kassel (Same factory building as before). Our rooms (all two of them and the workshop in the dungeon of the factory) are ready to use

Some of our equipment:

  • Laptops
  • Oscilloscopes analog and digital
  • Electrical workbench with generator, multimeter and supply
  • Lots of digital multimeters

  • Tools tools tools
  • Lots of raspberrys, some with touchscreen, some controlling CAN buses or our activitiy banner at our website
  • Blinkenstuff

Some of our current projects:
