The Makerbot that sang Happy Birthday


( via LCD )

The AZ Labs net­work is a fam­ily of sorts, and as the good fam­ily we are we com­mem­o­rate our mem­bers birth­days, hacker style ;)

First our friends at Alt­lab made a hard(ware) cake last week to cel­e­brate XDA’s Tiago Serra’s birth­day and took the chance to test their spiffy new Alt­lab TV ustream chan­nel

This week, we decided to cel­e­brate our friend Catarina’s birth­day by mak­ing the Maker­bot we named after her sing Happy Birth­day:

The hack was really easy to do, we just pulled a MIDI file with the song from the web, edited it to only have one track and passed through michthom’s MIDI-to-CNC script to gen­er­ate the G-Code for the bot.

Whose birth­day is next and what will we do to cel­e­brate it?
