If you're close enough to Apex this November to attend the Apex HS 
marching band carnival at the school, Josh and Joe will probably have 
the poplocks thing ("Paper Poseables" <http://www.paperposeables.com/>) 
set up there again (Joe volunteered Josh for it but I never had a chance 
to talk to Josh). We'll also have squishy circuits 
<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDZo51k2BWQ> and a Makey Makey with 
various forms of fruit connected to it as a "banana piano." 
<http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3aSpDDOqmI> One thing I'm going to do 
for sure this year is add a "cheater circuit" to the squishy circuits 
gear so motors and buzzers and the like can be controlled properly 
without just pulling everything to ground, albeit with an extra wire to 
connect.  I'm of course thinking about a FET transistor with back EMF 
protection. I have a plan for something much more interesting but want 
to see if I can create a mockup (i.e. put the time in) before sharing 
about that.

Here's the carnival web site, but they obviously haven't updated it with 
anything but one instance of "2014": http://www.apexbandcarnival.com/ 
It's about 97% likely to be Saturday November 8th with a rain date of 
the 15th.
