AZ ready for world domination

1

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!

AZLabs @ O Espaço do Tempo

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.“
“Que­res falar ao tele­fone? Fala aí! *slap*”

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.

Mini-workshop “Motores de Passo”

0

(scroll down for English)

Vamos pegar ale­a­tó­ri­a­mente num motor de passo e ten­tar des­co­brir que tipo de motor é, dese­nhar um dia­grama sim­ples do mesmo.
Depois vamos pegar no ferro de sol­dar (não há que ter mee­e­e­e­edo :)) e mon­tar um cir­cuito que per­mite con­tro­lar esse motor a par­tir de um Arduino ou qual­quer outra placa base­ada num micro­con­tro­la­dor.
Todo o mate­rial é for­ne­cido e fica para os par­ti­ci­pan­tes, sendo ape­nas neces­sá­rio tra­zer ferro de sol­dar e mul­ti­me­tro (ou espe­rar que alguma alma cari­dosa vos empreste).

O número de par­ti­ci­pan­tes é limi­tado pelo que, se dis­se­rem que vêm, con­ta­mos MEEESMO convosco ;)

Para ins­cri­ções e pedi­dos de infor­ma­ção: workshops /arroba/ audienciazero.org
Lota­ção máxima de 10 par­ti­ci­pan­tes

AltLab em Caci­lhas

Let’s each of us pick up a ran­dom step­per and try to find out what kind of step­per it is, draw a sim­ple dia­gram.
Then pick up the sol­de­ring iron (have noo­o­ooo fear :)) and assem­ble a cir­cuit to con­trol that motor from an Arduino or any other microcontroller-based board.
All mate­ri­als are sup­plied to the par­ti­ci­pants and everyone gets to keep them; you’re just requi­red to bring your own sol­de­ring iron and mul­ti­me­ter (or wait a ran­dom amount of time to bor­row some­one else’s).

The num­ber of par­ti­ci­pa­ti­ons is limi­ted, the­re­fore, if you tell us you’ll come, we’ll REEEALLY be wai­ting for you ;)
