AltLab’s founding members had their first official meeting yesterday (see photos). We approved the collective’s guidelines, compiled a list of tools to purchase, set up a hardware recycling bin, and then had a lot of fun discussing ideas and sharing knowledge. Two initial work groups were formed to build an outdoors video projector and a remote-controlled-mini-helicopter carrying a video camera — we’ll post more info on each of these on the community’s platform. We’ll also be working on our individual projects which include robotics, music, computer vision, smart materials, and lots of other fun things. More members and collaborators will be joining us from May 5th on and new work groups will be formed. We’ll keep you posted.
