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.
