This week at BinarySpace – 03/27

 

If you missed the meetup this week then you missed out! Felt like Christmas with all the different toys that ended up on the table.

Sebastian and Chris started working on the PowerHome project (our STM32 IOT Contest Entry). They made some good progress with the power monitoring devkit and at the end of the night they were monitoring the power usage of a heated 3d printer bed.

Lee rocked up with a bunch of new toys he received, including the new CubieTruck, an awesome usb LCD display and much more. I think we were all a little jealous, but Lee likes to share his toys so it was all good ;) DSC_6552 (Medium)

I also did a little demo of the new uMotio prototype and it turned it a little competition between Lee and Gys on who could do the shortest laps with SuperTuxKart. It was never officially declared but it looked like Gys was the winner ;)

We also have a new keg with Raspberry Delight beer so no one was thirsty.

Until next week!

Last night at BinarySpace – Valentine Build Night

Our Valentine Build at last night’s meetup was a big success. Everybody built their flower boards and left with it programmed and working great! Thanks to everybody who joined last night. The general consensus was that they really enjoyed doing small projects like that so we will do more of this in the future (easter is around the corner ….)

Some photos from last night:

BinarySpace Xmas Project – Part 2

So we had our last meetup for 2013 last night and what a blast it was. Our beer bottle xylophone is working and playing a delightful (although slightly off tune) xmas song ;)

We still have load of improvements and ideas for it so expect to see it a lot more. Check out the video of it’s first xmas tune:

It’s been a pretty awesome first year for BinarySpace and we have big plans for 2014. Our first meetup for 2014 will probably be around the 9th of January. But to stay in the loop it’s probably best to join the mailinglist :)

Happy Holidays!

Games/Robots/3D Printing and Cold Beer

What you missed if you weren’t there last night :)

  • Lee has most of the issues with his PrintrBot sorted. Should be printing by next week.
  • Sebastian worked on his Inmoov, it’s looking good and also scary if you think that it’s only the lower arm, the complete torso is going to be huge!
  • Hein came for a visit, said some interesting stuff about a DIY pick and place, should hopefully have more information
  • I couldn’t do much with my arcade project so ended up playing a bit with the mFi port and sensors
  • Cold beer!

Last night at BinarySpace :)

Hey Guys,

Another fun meeting last night. Tom played some more with the raspberry pi camera and got the user space (Thx Schalk) driver working with python. It’s running great.

Sebastian sorted out his screw problem and started doing some basic inmoov finger movements.

Don’t believe me? Check out this short and sweet video ;)

See everybody next week :)
