altLab’s new hacking facility

This Tuesday Altlabs opened it’s new amazing hacking space. Now within an old planes suppling factory that was reconverted into the Flying House Lisboa a place that gathers music and urban artists.

This new place gives AltLab a great new infrastructure and location filled with possibilities. Since it’s a heavily industrialized area we can only wonder what new resources and contacts we will gather to continue improving AltLab as a Hackersapce.

The Flying House Lisboa includes a lounge area with a café and small home restaurant on the second floor open to everyone on the building  and to AltLab’s members of course and a astonishing view over Lisbon’s airport.

Right on our first weekly meeting there we kicked off with a soft circuits workshop by Catarina, no one would be better to debut our new space that one of our dear founding members.

We even got time to finish assembling the Makerbot’s new rotating platform and extruder that we hope to have them ready to print as soon as possible.

As usual our door is wide open to everyone and we welcome all those lurking creative minds to bring great new ideas and projects to AltLab!

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.

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 “.”).
