AZ Labs @ O Espaço do Tempo

Day three is already upon us at the AZ Labs Res­i­dency. Folks still hap­pily hack­ing away day and night.

Run to the local chi­nese store brought back some hack­able good­ies like col­or­ful balls, a giant rubik’s cube and some wooden boxes. Andrea Inocên­cio was assigned to drilling duty after fin­ish­ing up with the manequin head. Ricardo Webbens left behind his radio loca­tion arduino cir­cuit pro­to­types for me to test.

César Coelho took the time to learn some new soft­ware stuff. Tiago Serra is cur­rently try­ing to make the kinect and the arduino talk with each other and make some annoy­ing sinus sounds. André Sier spent the after­noon hack­ing with Mauri­cio Mar­tins pro­gram­ming the arduinos with ir detec­tion to give some ran­dom blips and blops.

Tiago Rorke is almost fin­ished with print­ing and sand­ing the hard­ware of his rev­o­lu­tion­ary Micro CNC. Ricardo Lobo tried des­per­atly to get the other Maker­bot work­ing. Pedro Ângelo sec­cluded him­self to code some kinect stuff for Play With Fire. Fil­ipe Cruz spent some time test­ing new ver­sions of kinect libraries and ran­dom iPad devel­op­ment.

Ivo Andrade dropped by to enhance his project of the boy sit­ting on a metal cube. Patri­cia Proença sketched some con­cept art. Other folks were also walk­ing around look­ing busy and dis­cussing ideas. 7 more days to go.
