We have officially decided to go to the state fair!!! You can see us at the Show Me Robots tent. We saw many new faces tonight. The speaker from the last hack night was ripped apart discovering why it died. Scott showed off his cigar box amp.

We saw many new faces at this hack night. A printer was brought and decided to not work. A new idea was devised to shred old acrylic 3D printed plastic. Work was done on this idea, but there is still more to do. Many-a-things were taken apart.
I uploaded the schlieren images/video I took this weekend. I improved the illumination and focusing, so that a larger volume was imaged, to good effect I think. I am thinking of putting together an instructable, and a thingiverse thing with my 3D printed optical mounts in the near future.
This next Thursday we will have the privilege to host CMKT at Brad’s shop. They will be bringing kits and to build for $15 so bring some money. It should be a lot of fun.
Here is their little blurb:
Build an EconoMIC Bottle-Cap Contact Mic with CMKT 4 $15
Circuit-bending rock trio CMKT 4 will help students build a sturdy, working piezoelectric pickup using components and recycled materials. The band will help you learn to solder and ensure your success in building the kit. The comic book instructions will help guide you through their special process of soldering, drilling, gluing, zipping, and dipping – Voila! You are the proud owner and maker of your very own EconoMIC Bottle-Cap Contact Microphone (from Creme DeMentia). This simple transducer will create an audio signal from physical vibrations – like an electric stethoscope! Stick around for a performance from the band while the tool-handle dip dries!
See you there!
A lock picking marathon!
every one was picking locks, for many this was their first time. I think every one had a good time and much was learned.
Have another nutter butter peanut butter sandwich cookie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I finally got my Nikon F-mount Pinhole Lens up on Thingiverse. You can see it at: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:20993. Here is a link to a Flickr set with some photos of the lens and some images I took with it. http://www.flickr.com/photos/k0v0/sets/72157629762934733/
This is the pinhole attachment.
This was my favorite image.
A few pics from our small HackNight at Scott’s on the 16th. We mostly looked over Scott’s new Mosiac 3D printer and discussed plans for converting the MiniMill to CNC. Enjoy!Powered by Flickr Gallery
