Leonardo has been working on a laser-head RepRap for some time. His latest experiment was etching a PCB with it. Above is the video of the first tests, but go on over to his blog to check out all the details.
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
Since it’s really hot and most of our members are headed towards the beach for some well deserved vacations, we won’t be holding our Tuesday night public sessions until the end of August. Have a great summer and see you in September!
Caros amigos: o estabelecimento altlab encontra-se encerrado até ao final do mês de Agosto para descanso do pessoal. A gerência agradece a vossa preferência e espera ver-vos de novo em Setembro :)

12 — 31 July 2010
Convento da Saudação | Montemor-o-Novo | Portugal
Exhibition: Monday to Friday — 6pm / 11pm | Saturday and Sunday — 4pm /11pm

This exhibition presents the results of a unique experiment. For 17 days, 30 members of the Audiencia Zero Labs from all over the country and also abroad lived and worked together on collective projects. 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.

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. (more…)

This mitten lights up when its wearer shakes hands with someone. It has two exposed soft contacts around the thumb and across the palm which, when bridged by bare skin, turn on the LED embedded on the flower. The mitten itself was created by fashion designer Isabel Tomás, and we then sewed a simple touch switch circuit onto it using conductive fabric and thread. It also works with high fives and holding hands :)
Isabel and I designed this as a soft circuits exercise for some upcoming materials workshops. You can find all the instructions and images we prepared for this purpose @ openMaterials:
This Sunday we’re holding our first Soft Circuits Open Lab at the School of Fine Arts in Lisbon (FBAUL — Faculdade de Belas Artes de Lisboa). There is no predefined structure for the event. We will meet for the course of one day with the purposes of sharing knowledge, experimenting freely, advancing on-going projects, and just having fun working together. Some of the people attending will be specialists in electronics and others in textiles. Barcamp style impromptu presentations are very welcome.
Altlab will provide some basic tools such as pliers, scissors, soldering irons, ironing board, etc. But participants must bring all the materials and additional equipment necessary for their own projects/experiments (including laptops). Here are some suggestions: any kind of fabric, needles and thread, yarn, t-shirts, conductive and/or resistive fabric, conductive thread, conductive and/or resistive yarn, knitting and/or crochet needles, LEDs, coin cell batteries, battery holders, EL wire, strands of fiber optics, copper foil, copper adhesive track, aluminum foil, resistive foam, regular foam, arduinos (lilypad or any other kind). If you’ve never worked with any of these materials and don’t have them handy, come anyway, you can help someone else with their project and learn along the way.
This open lab will take place on February 21st, from 10:30 to 18:30, at the School of Fine Arts in Lisbon, room 307, 1st floor (since our own space is still under construction). All are welcome, there is no fee nor registration, but please do let me know if you are planning on coming: catarinamota(at)audienciazero.org

A Audiência Zero vai realizar uma residência artística multidisciplinar com os seus três laboratórios (AltLab, LCD, xDA) no O Espaço do Tempo (Montemor-o-Novo) no período entre 01 e 07 de Março e 14 e 23 de Junho. A apresentação dos trabalhos produzidos na residência será feita entre 12 e 25 de Julho. A residência é antes de mais destinada aos actuais membros dos laboratórios, mas está prevista a participação de elementos externos no caso destes apresentarem propostas de trabalho consistentes e interessantes. Mais informações e inscrições no fim desta página…
Os interessados na residência devem manifestar o seu interesse e inscreverem-se com a maior brevidade possível (fim da página) para garantir lugar. A organização entrará em contacto para dar seguimento à inscrição.
Quando solicitados pela organização os participantes devem indicar se têm um projecto em mente para desenvolver ou actividade a propor. Quanto mais claros forem os projectos e as actividades, assim como os pápeis a desempenhar por cada um dos elementos das equipas constituídas ou a constituir, maior é a probalidade da actividade ou projecto de ser integrada na residência.
As vagas na residência estão limitadas a 15, com direito a alojamento e uma refeição diária. No caso de existirem mais do que 15 participantes ter-se-á que escolher os projectos mais interessantes respeitando os seguintes critérios de selecção: criatividade, tecnologias envolvidas, viabilidade e tempo.
Após o periodo de inscrições, serão avaliados as aplicações pelos organizadores e definidos os artistas residentes. Iniciaremos a discussão dos projectos / actividades e definição da temática.
Exemplos de Áreas de Projecto:
. Electrónica e Computação Física
. Instalações Interactivas
. Visão por Computador
. Visualização de Dados

When asked by the organization participants must indicate whether they have a project in mind to develop or an activity to propose. The clearer the projects and activities, as well as the roles played by each element of a team, the greater the likelihood of the activity or project to be integrated into the residence.
Vacancies in the residence are limited to 15, with the right accommodation and a daily meal. If there are more than 15 participants, the organization we’ll have to choose the most interesting projects addressing the following selection criteria: creativity, technologies involved, feasibility and time.
