food for your stomach

Fee­ding 15 sleep depri­ved hac­kers is not an easy task and during the AZ Resi­dency only 3 peo­ple were brave enough to put their culi­nary talents to the test: Joel, Vitor and Mari­ana. Everyone agreed that their home­made meals were awe­some and no bug reports were filed. Since we beli­eve in sha­ring, here are Joel’s deli­ci­ous open source reci­pes (in french comme il faut):

Salad Dres­sing [ VO ]

4 cuillère à soupe d’huile d’olive
3 cuillère à soupe de vinai­gre bal­sa­mi­que
2 cuillère à café de miel

Goû­ter et ajus­ter : si trop sucré, ajou­ter du vinai­gre / si trop amer, ajou­ter du miel.

Bask Chic­ken [ VO ]

Pré­voir un bon mor­ceau de pou­let pour cha­cun des invi­tés
Sauce tomate

New teams were for­med, infi­nite ideas pro­po­sed, new tools and tech­no­lo­gies expe­ri­men­ted with, incre­di­ble adven­tu­res lived and new fri­ends made. The pro­jects at this exhi­bit are just the tip of the veil, the true impact of this expe­ri­ence is yet to come.

makerbot as microscope: what we learned

Joel Belouet has been wor­king on an art piece invol­ving micro­or­ga­nisms and nee­ded a sup­port struc­ture for his micros­cope camera. It turns out the Maker­Bot sit­ting on our table was the solu­tion.

At first Joel atta­ched the camera to the z axis and the slide res­ted on the build plat­form, but it soon became clear that it would be much bet­ter to have the sam­ple remain still and the camera move ins­tead. Inver­ting the posi­ti­ons meant atta­ching the slide to the bot­tom of the z axis plat­form in order to pre­vent the camera lens from bum­ping against it. This setup also allowed him to use the z crank as a focus mecha­nism. Con­ti­nue rea­ding “maker­bot as micros­cope: what we lear­ned”
