Maker Faire 2014 — See you Next Year!

 

 

Foi um Sucesso!

 

 

Supe­ra­mos as nos­sas expec­ta­ti­vas, expe­ri­men­ta­mos e demo-nos bem, foram-nos pro­pos­tos exce­len­tes desa­fios que nós acei­tá­mos e aguar­da­mos com ante­ci­pa­ção, par­ti­lha­mos sor­ri­sos, conhe­ci­mento, apren­de­mos muito com quem nos visi­tou, divertimos-nos imenso no pro­cesso e par­ti­mos com sau­dade mas com a cer­teza que vol­ta­re­mos na pro­xima Maker Faire

 

We’ve exce­ded our expec­ta­ti­ons, made expe­ri­ments that pro­ven good results, got pro­po­sed great chal­len­ges that we promp­tly accep­ted and eagerly await, sha­red smi­les, kno­wlege, lear­ned a lot with those that visi­ted us, had a lot of fun in the pro­cess and left with nos­tal­gia but with the cer­tainty that we will return next Maker Faire.

Os dois kits Ardui­nos que foram ofe­re­cido ao altLab pela InMo­tion vão para vocês. Já esta­mos a pre­pa­rar um workshop espe­cial apren­der a soldar :)

 

 

 

No junk Chal­lenge, todos foram ven­ce­do­res, mas se houve alguém que se des­ta­cou pelos conhe­ci­men­tos reve­la­dos em tão tenra idade foi este Rapaz.

The Lis­bon Maker Faire is hover and we are still cat­ching our bre­ath after three super intense days of sha­ring our pas­sion for making with our com­mu­nity and the gene­ral public

Makerfaire prep

This last Tues­day mee­ting was super hec­tic with everyone get­ting their pro­jects ready for the upco­ming Lis­bon Mini Maker­faire and for the Junk Chal­lenge altLab is orga­ni­zing there (join us!).

Here are some pho­tos as a sneak peek of the pre­pa­ra­ti­ons. I’ll let you work out by your­self what everyone is doing as I don’t want to spoil the surprises.

See you at the Faire!

we’re back

After a well deser­ved hol­li­day, the altLab crew is back in the lab. We are still get­ting to know our new home, and it will still take a while for us to get com­ple­tely com­for­ta­ble, but some of us are alre­ady back to work on their pro­jects. Here’s the play-by-play report of last Tuesday’s session.

Luis wor­ked on his Hacky­Ra­cers pro­ject, trying to get it ready to show at the Lis­bon Maker Faire. He also put the finishing tou­ches on a small elec­tro­nics kit to teach kids about electronics.

Fer­nando set out to improve the power con­sump­tion of our lab’s RFID door lock to only turn on when some­one is actu­ally trying to use it. This week he dis­man­tled the door knob and mod­ded it to close a cir­cuit when the lever is pul­led, check it:

I went to the lab to etch some PCBs for a wire­less sen­sor kit that detects tree hugs :) Our usual toner trans­fer tech­ni­que wasn’t wor­king pro­perly, as the glossy maga­zine paper wasn’t stic­king to the cop­per plate when pas­sed under the lami­na­tor seve­ral times, so I took a tip from Fer­nando and used some mad iro­ning skills:

The results were great:

Next week will be hec­tic as we will be pre­pa­ring for the Maker Faire and set­ting up our new shel­ves to sort all our mate­ri­als and tools and make the new place a pro­per workshop.

See you next Tuesday!
