This week at BinarySpace – 12 June 2014

It’s been a while since we did another update. So here is what happened last night at our regular meetup πŸ™‚

Last week we decided it’s time for a new fun space project where everybody can get involved. We decided to start fixing up our beer dispensing. We have been enjoying beer on tap since the beginning of BinarySpace but our setup looked like this:

It works, but usually takes a while for new members to learn to use a beer tap like that and we lose some precious beer in the process. We decided that our new space project would be to mount the tap and throw some tech in the mix.

We decided on adding some sensors for measuring flow and temperature. Also for some bling, convert to the top into a led matrix. The final idea is still a work in progress so we’ll see how much we end up adding to the system.

Last night we started looking at mounting options and got the rgb led’s for the matrix up and running.

Gys organised a killer mount for the tap:

We still need a few fittings and hack everything together but with a bit of luck, beer will be flowing from the new tap at next week’s meetup…

Louis also joined us last night with his Morgan 3d printer. He is making some great progress and will be printing soon πŸ™‚
