Call for developers

For tho­se who have been pre­sent at alt lab mee­tings know by now that I’m cur­ren­tly deve­lo­ping a 3D Laser Prin­ter.

Laser pro­jec­ti­on

As far as elec­tro­nics everything is almost good to go with some minor twe­aks, but I’m facing a giant pro­blem now. I  don’t have time to deve­lop soft­ware for this pet and I don’t want it to be delayed for much lon­ger than it alre­ady has been, so I’m reques­ting for kind hear­ted deve­lo­pers to step up and help me in this task.

Any help is wel­co­me ple­a­se con­tact me to lj dot [email protected] dot unl dot pt (repla­ce “dot” for “.”).

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):

altlab goes on vacation

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 🙂

After many days of work, stress and fun, we seem to have mana­ged to pull through 10 pro­jects to show­ca­se at O Espa­ço do Tem­po! The exhi­bi­ti­on ope­ned yes­ter­day, 12th July at Con­ven­to da Sau­da­ção and will remain in exhi­bit until the end of the month.

We also have a mini-site with bios of the authors and des­crip­ti­ons of the works, tem­po­ra­rily hos­ted here. Not only of the works pre­sent at the exhi­bi­ti­on but also a few others deve­lo­ped during the resi­dency that couldn’t be exhi­bi­ted by one rea­son or another. Check them out!

Big thanks are in order to everyo­ne at O Espa­ço do Tem­po for the oppor­tu­nity we had, and all the in loco sup­port to our needs, you rock. 🙂

AZLabs @ O Espaço Do Tempo (0day -2)

2 days to go until the exhi­bit ope­ning of the Audi­en­cia Zero Labs resi­dency at O Espa­ço Do Tem­po!

A few folks seem to be mis­sing in acti­on. Mau­ri­cio is back with some news from Inte­rac­ti­vos to lend us a hand on pen­ding pro­jects. Móni­ca and Pedro are still wor­king on B-wind!. Mar­ga­ri­da wor­king on his robot Freddy. Vic­tor Sil­va rehe­ar­sing his The Last Words of Domi­ni­co. Vic­tor and Mar­co wor­king on Dis­car­da­ble Beauty. Gui­lher­me finishing his Róbo­ti­ca Cri­a­ti­va works. And me finishing up Meta Gen Hai­ku. Cata­ri­na and Joel should also show up tomo­row with their Micro Déri­ve.

Web­si­te with more info on the pre­sen­ted pro­jects should go onli­ne soon. In the mean­ti­me if you should show up on Mon­day the 12th July in Mon­te­mor-O-Novo for the exhi­bit. We will have 7 pro­jects ins­tal­led under exhi­bi­ti­on until the 31st July, and 2 live­acts pre­sen­ted on the exhi­bi­ti­on day 12th July.

In the mean­ti­me we’ll lea­ve you with some impor­tant t-shirt quo­te mate­ri­al we have recen­tly acqui­red:
“48 horas são 6 dias de tra­ba­lho, em tur­nos de 8 horas”
“Eu só faço pro­jec­ti­on map­ping quan­do estou bêba­do”
“Não tens pin­cel para isso. Vai antes de rolo.”
