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.
Terrific night yesterday @ altlab!
The workshop started with an intro to electronics leaving the attendees anxious to get down to soldering.
Despite that, everyone was focusing their attention on what was being said.
Half an hour later the soldering irons were plugged in and the fun started.
Hands-on and having fun!

It took us a while, but practice makes perfect, and we’re now much closer to ridiculing Justin Bieber than we’ve ever been before!
You might have noticed what derived from our Residency @ Espaço do Tempo, a dozen projects from several folks spread over the 3 labs exploring the robotic, the interactive, the sensorial, the tangible, the generative, the audiovisual, the augmented, the provocative, the performative and a few other of all those dirty little words you so much secretly love hearing about. Don’t be shy now. Nothing wrong with getting a little tangible now and again. 😉
We even participated in a little exhibit last month at Pavilhão Atlântico to present these and a couple other works. And now we’re back with more weapons of mass destruction. And now, this very weekend we’re meeting up again for some holiday hacking follery at LCD to show some more of our projects and do a few mini-sprints. Feel free to join us. Lock up your geeks, we’re coming for them!
