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*”

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.

Work­shop DIY Kinetic Solar­Bots — Con­strua o seu próprio robot cinético solar.

Neste work­shop os par­tic­i­pantes vão con­struir um pequeno robot cinético através da mon­tagem de um cir­cuito solar com um pequeno motor e do design/modelagem do corpo do robot com Shmel­zolan (plás­tico uti­lizado em arte­sanato).

Datas : 12 de Maio / 19 de Maio / 26 de Maio

Horário : 17h — 21h

Preço : 25 Euros/Pessoa

Local : Rua Gar­rett, 70 (Baixa, Lis­boa)

Work­shop Elec­trónica Apren­der a sol­dar

Qual­quer pes­soa é capaz de fazer uma boa sol­dadura, é só uma questão de prática! Neste work­shop apren­demos a sol­dar con­stru­indo cir­cuitos muito diver­tidos como o Pisca-Pisca LED, uPONG (Retro Video GAME), Draw­dio (um lápis/pincel que emite sons enquanto desen­há­mos) entre out­ros.

Datas : 14 de Maio / 21 de Maio / 28 de Maio

Mini-workshop “Motores de Passo”

(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
Sábado 13 de Março de 2010
Alt­Lab em Cacil­has
14h00m
5€


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 😉
