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

 

( via LCD )

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?

Depois de uma noite literalmente “movimentada”, com motores e Motoruinos por todo lado, não podíamos deixar de agradecer ao Guilherme Martins (@guibot) e ao André Almeida pela fantástica aula que deram e sobretudo aos participantes e aqueles que acompanharam esta 1ª emissão “live webcast” da altLabTV sem os quais nada disso teria acontecido.
ah! também não podemos esquecer de agradecer ao Farrusco por ter aparecido na festa 😛
Muito obrigado !
