I'm a little bit proud of that, my first blog entry @ hackaday.com:

Moritz also mentioned chilipeppr, tinyg, smoothiboard and Arthur Wolf :)

Control a 2-port KVM switch via HTTP over WLAN with an ESP8266
http://www.grappendorf.net/projects/wlan-kvm-switch.html

Recently I bought a small and inexpensive 2-port KVM (DVI/USB) switch that I installed with the intention to switch between my Linux and Windows workstations. Marketing promises that I could switch by pressing Scroll-Lock or Ctrl on my keyboard two times. The sad reality is: this only works if the currently active workstation is the Windows one (WTF!?).

This article briefly describes how you can add an ESP8266 module to a KVM switch, which allows toggling between the two computers by sending a REST/JSON request via WLAN. You can then define global keyboard shortcuts that simply call httpie to send the toggle request to the switch.

It is easier for me to just mill some slots into the jaws that I have made. Plus I do not care for jaw covers for something like this anyways. They would function poorly for me.

I used to participate in an event called Super Happy Devhouse. We would get together at a house and program on our laptops. Started off small and then grew to hundreds of people, as we had more of these events. People would talk about tech projects mainly, and not about business. Some hardware, lots of software, and a little bit of art. Apart from people casually hanging out, we also had a moment where we would do lightning talks. These were presentations that were limited to five minutes each. Anyone could do a presentation and people signed up at the party. The short duration was key because it meant if a talk was boring, it wouldn't go on too long. And if it was exciting, then people could talk to the person afterward. I would suggesting doing lightning talks at your event. If the event you have in mind is more like maker faire, then I'm not sure what to suggest, as I've never helped organize one of those. Either way, good luck witch your event.

#obeyminimalism part 3: how to attach two servos to a two DoF "cluster" very cheap and light. i hope you like it!

http://assadollahi.de/minimalistic-way-of-building-a-2-dof-servo-cluster/
as you know i love to design minimalistic mechanics and always try to simplify my previous designs. many of the things in trashbot 6 have been redesign to reduce weight and the number of parts. one study of reducing complexity was the robot foot made from two servos and coat hanger wire and it ...

The CNC is our first attempt to print the parts for something else that makes things. So far it's going great, but we have to buy the electronics and some of the non-printed parts still. About 20 hours left of print time for the parts, then next month we get the parts and put it together. Another side project is to print a smaller printer that can do smaller parts and models. It's a really neat idea, bootstrapping a whole shop worth of tools.

My favourite thing about joining a local makerspace is that 18-months-ago me wouldn't understand a thing that today me was talking about or doing: “WTF are indexable tools, and why do you own methylene chloride and so many boxes of metal bars? Why do we have thirty plastic 40 mm lenses on order from some place overseas?”

For my first serious project with the Tormach CNC mill (or with any CNC mill, for that matter) I designed a tray for my Apple Watch bands. The tray itself is less about practicality than it was about getting to do lots of tool changes, and try a variety of milling operations. Sizing the stock on the big Acra manual mill, facing passes, roughing, finishing passes, and even a chamfer. Routine stuff for the experts, I'm sure, but really fun and exciting for a hobbyist at a #makerspace.

Even so, I made certain to test my design with a few quick laser cut prototypes, first in cardboard, then after some refinements, in acrylic. (I didn't commit to carving up a block of aluminum until I was satisfied with the design.)

Best part: I joined Protospace a year and a half ago, and when I did, I knew absolutely nothing about metalworking, CAM, laser cut prototyping, or maker stuff, in general. My "maker" skills were limited to a little work with a glue gun, and maybe some LEGO stuff.

Software: Autodesk Fusion 360
Hardware: A variety of end mills and a chamfer mill. A Tormach PCNC 1100 mill. An Acra kneel mill. A sandblasting cabinet. A large laser cutter. A MacBook.
Makerspace: Calgary Protospace.

Adafruit Founder Limor Fried interviews Dave Doherty on topics ranging from the death of the physical catalogue, to the joy of running an engineering company as an engineer yourself. Also discussed is Digi-Key's Maker.io, which is an invaluable service for makers to roadmap their very own designs, from prototype to delivery. Adafruit is proud to partner with Digi-key and introduce Maker.io to all our customers and fans. This kicks off Adafruit's video series Maker to Market, which will take you on the journey that was the creation of Circuit Playground, Adafruit's all-in-one board, and the perfect microcontroller for learning electronics. Check out Circuit Playground over at Maker.io now!
