When Surplus Electronics and Fashion Meet…

On Wednesday night the left and right brains hung out together for a while, assisted by beer, and created some highly non-functional pieces from wire and electronic parts. A variety of techniques was in evidence from the ubiquitous hot glue to weaving and soldering. Here are a few pics of the results. Who knew that […]

Word clock with JavaScript and a monitor

Tonight some VHSers (Steven Smethurst,  David Galloway, and Mike Adams) were playing with doug’s word clock design.

So pretty. While that was going on, John hooked up the hood light and fan. Here he is demonstrating […]

What’s being made on the laser cutter this week?

Just made this afternoon: 1. A small acrylic X-mas tree (a hackable variation of which is soon to be scaled up and hung upside down from the ceiling at VHS) 2.  Acrylic dice created using a parametric box generator that Funvill found. Both of these creations were solvent welded using methylene chloride that Loial sourced […]
