They're here! And their amazing. I can't wait to order the functional ones..

I also apologize about my hands I have dermatophagia. The resistors are the wrong ones, I just wanted to demo what the full version will look like. They fit absolutely perfectly too. Oh and my terminal blocks are too big..does anyone know which I should get? I had to bend them.

when you are setting up a homeserver, nothing kills operational availability more than a cat jumping on the power button. I have no "save place" for the machine at the moment, and i lack the time to build a new powerbutton on the frontside of the case. so this quick lego+hack should do the job .

Make an Automated Slide Film Scanner with LEGOs #celebratephotography
https://blog.adafruit.com/2015/04/18/make-an-automated-slide-film-scanner-with-legos-celebratephotography/

This is pretty impressive: photographer Pascal Kulcsar needed to digitize some old slide film left behind by his grandfather. Rather than purchase a film scanner, Kulcsar decided to combine his technical ingenuity and love for LEGOs to create a DIY slide film scanner using LEGO pieces.

Update after 3 weeks growth (since germination) in my DIY LED growlight system.

Lettuce seem nice and healthy and I've thinned out quite a few for use in salads and very tasty!
Hi All, Just a quick update for anyone interested in the progress of my DIY LED growlight experiment. The system has been unmodified since last week. Below is a photo of the lettuce experiment afte...

Actually, I recently started a small hydroponic experiment. Both lettuces are grown from plugs, but one is currently being grown under the same growlights, while the other is being grown on the windowsill. However, as this is my first experiment with any kind of hydroponics, I'm not sure if either will grow well.

At work we had a hackathon last week and I worked on a small team that built a prototype telepresence robot built on a Roomba.

It consists of:
- the aforementioned roomba
- a metal post reclaimed from an old laptop pedestal
- an Android tablet as the "head"
- custom 3D-printed mounts for the tablet, with a servo allowing the screen and camera to be tilted (which is important since the robot is only as tall as a 7-year-old)
- some plywood connective tissue
- a Raspberry Pi allowing the Roomba and the servo to be controlled over the network
- an HTTP/websocket server allowing remote commands to be sent

We definitely need some more iterations before we could confidently let someone use this thing without a local assistant, but it was a fun, educational project.

Call for participants, Build a racing sculpture.

A feature of Cambridge River Fest in the 80's, is returning from a long hiatus, Sculpture Racing.  Creations were pushed, pulled, and occasionally pedaled on a course of up to a mile.  Pieces would stop and give little performances to the crowd.  Outlandish trophies were awarded.  Tongues may have been planted in cheeks.  Crowds were over 100 thousand strong.

The Artisans Asylum has been asked to build and race an entry in the re-inaugural event on June 6th. Here is a chance for the Asylum community to build a large and somewhat silly piece of art, and show their work (and the Asylum's name) off to many thousands of people.  An object almost as big as Stompy, but providing near instant gratification,  as it will be weeks rather than years in the making.

Starting on April 12th with an "organizational" meeting, and continuing Sunday mornings  till mid to late May, will be an open building event.  This isn't a class, its a project.  If you are a member, participation is free. (If you aren't a member, you are still welcome to participate, and a 5 pack of day passes should cover things)  Festivities will be from 10 am till around 2 PM, in the Tardis (aka MPR2).  On April 26 instead of building, we will be part of an exhibition at the MIT museum, a "Signature" event of the Cambridge Science festival, showing drawings, some work in progress, etc.

To honor the tool using focus of Artisans, and in a nod to another racing event that used to take place in Somerville, the plan is to build a scaled (up) super-modified class racing belt sander.  The finished machine (and the first order of business is coming up with a name for it) will be 10-15 feet long, and 5' wide.  We will be building it out of foam, with a metalized mylar (space blanket) skin, on a frame of steel and wood, with bicycle based running gear.


The prototype is an  early 60's model known to collectors as a "locomotive" style. Its going to have a whole bunch of sponsor stickers, like any good dragster, wheelie bars (that double as the push point), flames on the nose, and the ugliest piece of shag carpet or critter fur I can find as the sanding belt.

Here is a chance to figure out how most theatrical props get made, but this is for more than the foam carving brigade.  Costumes would be a great thing, and an area which I am completely clueless.  The machine could use lighting and sound effects.

I can now say based on fresh experience, that it will be
- about 100 € cheaper,
- 1 week faster,
- considerably less noisy, and
- way easier
to just go and buy some magazine rack from Ikea rather than build your own custom rack for all your family's tablets from leftovers, if you are not accustomed to building your own furniture and equipped with sufficient machinery.

However, the experience and bragging rights can be worthwhile, too.
