Super TON tonight! We had 13 visitors in including the ever-popular Seth Hardy all the way from T.O.
Dave (above) demo’d his circuit-bent drum machine for kwartzlab tv. Nice job, Dave. And thanks to Nick for shooting the video.
click through for stills…
A sweet rig.
Later, Dave rocked the Wacky Sound Generator that I built.
There’s Louise and Alex working textiles in the corner. Andrew and Doug are working Arduino game projects. Ed’s working on an e-bike with a killer 1kW motor. And Dan’s writing code for a smart card.
Louise was working on funky doll wigs. Cool.
They’re really quite compelling and far less trouble than Tribbles.
Seth brought us another present from the Big Smoke. Here is his flourescent acrylic, laser-cut, flaming hippo ornament. It’s designed so a 10mm LED and CR2032 battery snap right into it. James observed that it would look cool with a UV LED and I happily chipped in a 5mm UV LED I had on hand. This definitely warrants a field trip to PlasticWorld in T.O.
Caelyn was rockin’ (literally) while Mark created chain mail.
This takes serious patience and 2 pair of needle-nosed pliers.
The rope-like piece is really cool. I understand it’s just a different weave to get different forms.
And all made out of these tiny individual stainless steel rings.
Makes for a weighty shirt. No airport security for me.
Eli and Desirae stopped by to say hello.
My co-host and compadre, Mr. Ben Brown, ran the door. Gracias, Ben!
And I had 7 skilled and eager makers brainstorming drive circuits and mechatronics with me for Animeyes.
Awesome night and amazing energy and diversity of projects. Thanks everyone for making the extra effort to bring projects to work on. It makes TON geometrically better than simply hanging out.
