We are lucky to be located close to a hub for such an important part of our audience, Makers!  We had a blast, and we'd like to invite you to experience...

"Hack This: 24 Incredible Hackerspace Projects from the DIY Movement"

element14 : Discussion List - The Great Global Hackerspace Challenge

Howdy,

 

This excellent book just arrived for me today from Amazon:

I had high expectations based on the author John Baichtal's work on the Make blog, and the book definitely lives up.  It is wonderful to browse through the large number of projects featured, and I also enjoyed getting a glimpse of all the different...

Still at it

Jude's GHHC Blog

So thought I forgot about this.

Anyway it is was really hectic here for a while as we had to expand or move. Well we doubled our space and nearly doubled our membership so that went well, but shifting and moving and running enough power to the new wood shop took a bit of time.

 

But I am back at it again.

 

So the coffee table board is first up.

 

Thinking about a table with lots of holes in it and...

Biosensor Q & A

element14 : Blog List - Pumping Station: One

Howdy,

 

Our biosensor array team was recently featured on the Make blog:

 

http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2011/05/gghc-semifinalist-profile-pumping-station-one.html

 

I really liked the answers that team member Shawn Blaszak wrote up but unfortunately they didn't make it into the Make post, so I figured I would post them here.

 

1. What was it like working on the GGHC challenge?

 

ANSWER:  Working...

Howdy,

 

Our biosensor team is honored to be selected a finalist and humbled to be in the company of fellow finalists, Hackerspace Charlotte's Feltronics & BuildBrighton's Phonicubes.

 

 

I had a total "WOW!" moment when I realized, while watching the Feltronics video, that the circuit on the white board was a radio transmitter!  I think Feltronics will be a big help to electronics instruction...

Not Goodby

Jude's GHHC Blog

Although the Challenge is over the project goes on. I'll be updating this blog as time goes on at least until the next challenge.

 

The Big Board was a success. It was also a lot of fun. I did however get diverted into using just found material in order to make the project as widely buildable as possible. Now I'm going to concentrate on a higher quality process. Both with the board and with the...

Ouch! Sensing Galvanic Skin Response (GSR)

element14 : Blog List - Pumping Station: One

Howdy,

 

The primary sensor I've been prototyping for the Pumping Station: One Biosensor is the galvanic skin response, or GSR, sensor.  GSR is a measurement of the electrical conductance of the skin.  Sweating causes changes in the conductance, which offers an indication of emotional excitement because the sweat glands are controlled by the sympathetic nervous system.  GSR does not offer a fine...

Sector67 set out to embody as much of this spirit as possible in its creation of the Weather Window. We called it the Weather Window because when looking “through” it, a user will see opportunities and...

HSKL Storybox submission

Hackerspace Kuala Lumpur

Timezones and a slow E14 site conspired against us yesterday to get our submission in on time, so our final update was published by Kakeman on our own blog, but for completeness, here's another version:

During the brainstorming session, we conceived an idea of doing “The Story Box”. It’s a device with a button and an LCD display. When a user press the button, a random word...
