First meeting

AltLab's first meeting
AltLab’s foun­ding mem­bers had their first offi­cial mee­ting yes­ter­day (see pho­tos). We appro­ved the collective’s gui­de­li­nes, com­pi­led a list of tools to pur­chase, set up a hard­ware recy­cling bin, and then had a lot of fun dis­cus­sing ideas and sha­ring kno­wledge. Two ini­tial work groups were for­med to build an out­do­ors video pro­jec­tor and a remote-con­trol­led-mini-heli­cop­ter car­rying a video camera  — we’ll post more info on each of these on the community’s plat­form. We’ll also be wor­king on our indi­vi­dual pro­jects which include robo­tics, music, com­pu­ter vision, smart mate­ri­als, and lots of other fun things. More mem­bers and col­la­bo­ra­tors will be joi­ning us from May 5th on and new work groups will be for­med. We’ll keep you pos­ted.
