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. […]

For her victory she was awarded a few rolls of wool to knit future projects with. What […]

What’s happening at the VHS, April 2012

[youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=QtGGe0bebnk] Apologies to Rob. Rob! You are a good person and I am a monster for forgetting your name. The Kaizen team last night put up the VHS banner over the lockers, did the dishes, cleaned out all kinds of cruft, tossed about 30 pens that didn’t work any more, and generally did a kick-ass […]

What’s going on in the space, March 2012?

Crazy busy last night at the VHS.  I think I sat down a total of 5 minutes to solder something and the rest was flitting about wiring, taping, filming, collaborating, and cleaning.  So many faces, new and old.
