altLab goes on vacation :P

Sin­ce it’s really hot and most of our mem­bers are hea­ded towards the bea­ch for some well deser­ved vaca­ti­ons, we won’t be hol­ding our Tues­day night public ses­si­ons until August, 15.
Have a gre­at sum­mer and see you at the next mee­ting on August, 16 🙂

Caros ami­gos: o altLab encon­tra-se encer­ra­do até 15 de Agos­to para des­can­so do pes­so­al.
Tenham todos um ópti­mo verão, e até a pró­xi­ma ses­são Ter­ça-Fei­ra 16 de Agos­to 🙂

The Makerbot that sang Happy Birthday

The AZ Labs network is a family of sorts, and as the good family we are we com­me­mo­ra­te our mem­bers birth­days, hac­ker sty­le ;)

First our fri­ends at Altlab made a hard(ware) cake last week to cele­bra­te XDA’s Tia­go Serra’s birth­day and took the chan­ce to test their spiffy new Altlab TV ustre­am chan­nel

This week, we deci­ded to cele­bra­te our fri­end Catarina’s birth­day by making the Maker­bot we named after her sing Happy Birth­day:

The hack was really easy to do, we just pul­led a MIDI file with the song from the web, edi­ted it to only have one track and pas­sed through michthom’s MIDI-to-CNC script to gene­ra­te the G-Code for the bot.

Who­se birth­day is next and what will we do to cele­bra­te it?
