Hack The Space Night – March 19, 2013

What a night! The rain turned people away and yet it was wall to wall action. Paul brought in this robot. It has bumper sensors to avoid (serious) collisions. Look at the intricacy in these circuits! So pretty. While that was going on, John hooked up the hood light and fan. Here he is demonstrating […]

Ottersoft “Tiny” 3D Printer Demo @ VHS open night 2013-02-26

The Ottersoft.ca “Tiny” is a fantastic new printer coming soon. It can print 700mmx400mmx300mm and can move at 500mm/s and print at 300mm/s. It has a resolution of 9 microns X and Y and less than 1 micron in Z. What would you print with that kind of size and accuracy? This and many other […]

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 […]

Project: technosuit

I’ve been working on a project involving an Arduino Mega 2560 and a bunch of LEDs and electroluminescent wires. The application was to control a wearable lightsuit which responds to outgoing MIDI messages from a sequencer (Ableton Live in this case). It’s now officially up and running and has been out in public, with very positive results. […]

Acrylic chess set – Made on the laser cutter

One of our members (funvill)  made a Acrylic chess from a design found on thingiverse. This is one of the first things to come out of laser cuter. More to come soon as we start to train everyone on it. The laser cuter is currently for members only and only after training. Have you considered join […]

What’s going on in the space? Laser update edition!

Richard Sim graciously invested a large part of Wednesday night running test cuts before firing off these perfect parts for a robotic camera gimbal on the laser cutter. This is the biggest thing we’ve cut to date. This just in: A little bird has told me there’s going to be an announcement about the laser […]

Super Happy Hacker House 22

Congratulations to Fredrica for her amazing loofah-like Super Hardy Egg Liability Limiter (SHELL). According to eye witnesses, Fredrica’s AWESOME crochet’d cloud just floated slowly down and went poof on the spot. (If anyone has video, let us know!) For her victory she was awarded a few rolls of wool to knit future projects with. What […]
