My university, UT Arlington, has announced plans to build a Makerspace in their Central Library and they are looking for people to help provide input on what the space will be made up of. The university already has a few of the machines needed in various other departments scattered around the University in less than accessible locations but this will be a new innovation hub for equipment and resources geared towards students and community members. Please feel free to contact the email address in the end of the news article if you are interested in consulting with the University on the project.
The CXI Space will be a “makerspace” built upon the expertise of UT Arlington faculty, alumni, industry thought-leaders and the philanthropic investment of corporate and private partners. Makerspaces are a fast developing phenomenon worldwide, bringing together diverse inventors in a ...

TL;DR:  Come meet the Keyboardio Model 01, and hang out with its creators too.

When? TODAY ~ SATURDAY ~ June 27th ~  from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM

Where? In the Lecture Hall at Dallas Makerspace (1825 Monetary Ln #104 Carrollton, TX 75006)

What? Keyboardio is a tiny company making the Model 01: an Arduino-powered keyboard with open firmware and open hardware.  

Host: Kaia Dekker and Jesse Vincent 

The venue: Dallas Makerspace is a non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory full of artists, engineers, makers, and thinkers.  Our members hold unique educational events and collaborate on cool projects! 


From Keyboardio...
As we've been building what's become the Model 01, we've talked to hundreds of you online, at conferences, and at festivals. It's been amazing to watch folks suddenly "get it" as they put their hands on a Model 01 in person for the first time.

It's designed to be comfortable/ergonomic and gorgeous. It started out as a hobby and has now grown to the point of a commercial Kickstarter. You can learn more at and

(There's also a rough draft of a commercial that Autodesk shot about us online at

We'll have a few Model 01 prototypes with us for you to try out, as well as a deconstructed Model 01 and a few earlier prototypes. If folks are interested, we can also do a short talk about the adventure of building your own keyboard from scratch, a short talk or Q&A session about turning your hobby project into your day job, going through a hardware incubator or just about anything else folks want to know about.

RSVPs are encouraged but not required. (In other words, it's ok to show up, even if you didn't RSVP).
Here's the link to RSVP, if you get a chance:

Please back our Kickstarter:

If you've backed our Kickstarter (or promise to), we'll give you stickers.

Does the Dallas Makerspace have vacuforming equipment? I'm interested in making a suit of Space Marine Armor and this is the one thing I can't get a hold of.

Thursdays are basically just our open house night, where we physically prop the door open. We don't have a doorbell yet and our new building is huge, so other times can be a bit sketchy for getting in. :)

That said, you could probably coordinate with someone to check it out another night (myself included, but I have a wacky schedule too). Check out our calendar too ( Almost every event we put on there is open to the public.

Experimental concrete table top making, 200 pounds of mix later...

good idea on the wire mesh.  concrete is very brittle.  it does great with compressive forces but under dynamic loads it can crack quite easily hence all of our home foundation problems.

an idea would be to test sample 12"x12" blocks with different aggregate, water, and mix ratios.  Test different types of aggregate too such as rubber, metal, wood, etc.  Perform different stress tests on the sample blocks.
