ARTEMIS PROJECTS RESIDENT #1 ------ Mitch Altman, American innovator and co-founder of Noisebridge Hackerspace is arriving to Zagreb on Tuesday for Artemis Projects residency in partnership with @radiona_org. ----- As part of the residency he will lead a hackerspace lab where you can develop hands-on experience with technology, brainstorm ideas, invent projects, and workshop the direction you want technology to evolve. ----- If you are in Zagreb or nearby and would like to take part in the lab, contact Radiona: tinyurl.com/y9ly3nak -----
52 Week Challenge - Week 10
Circuit Hacking Arduino
Ten weeks! I cannot believe I have been doing these challenges for 10 straight weeks! I have to admit, there were definitely weeks where it was difficult to come up with new challenges, which is why I’m very happy for pushing myself this far. I wish I’d done this project sooner as these weekly challenges are an effective way of growing as an individual. Without further ado, here is how I challenged myself for week numero diez!
This week I created a light show using an Arduino circuit board and some LED’s. I followed some instructions to build a circuit of LED’s and program them to light up in a looping pattern. You may not be able to see the LED colors clearly, but they are blue and orange. Go Broncos! 😉
So, what is Arduino? It is an open source platform with hardware and software that companies and individuals can use to build electrical projects. The most commonly used tool is the circuit boards, which are essentially microcontrollers that act as a bridge between the physical and digital world. The big theme surrounding Arduino is DIY – we can make anything we want.
This was an important challenge for me because I have been wanting to drive my career towards Robotics for a while and hopefully this is a step in that direction.
I'll level with you, I'm beshelf myself with happiness with how well this project turned out! Oh I thought I invented the word shelfie, but nope. Wood workers are definitely a punny bunch. #woodshop#woodworking#noisebridge

Hey foam-pushing volunteers! Thanks for the help.
Things to know about doing this:
0.) VERY IMPORTANT: close the red plastic curtain and work directly under the large and loud room vent in the Sparkle Forge. Wear a mask (I suggest bringing your own), make sure the vent switch is turned on, and courteously tell others in the room that you will be working with a potentially hazardous substance and they may want to put a mask on themselves.
1.) Start with one of the blocks that have already been cut in half. This is about 10 by 10 by 5 inch give or take.
2.) Keep the pattern pusher straight and parallel to the backboard, keeping your right hand firmly pushing foam against it at all times.
3.) The slower the better. Even slower than I did in this video!
4.) Check the resulting inverted pattern on the foam block as you push, and make sure it doesn't get too close to the edge.
5.) Switch focus between the pusher alignment, the pusher needlehead weaving the pattern, and the resulting inverted pattern on the foam. You'll get the hang of this flow.
6.) It doesn't have to be perfect, but the more of the pattern you can fit onto the block, the better.
7.) VERY IMPORTANT LAST STEP: Switch off the machine after every single block to let the nichrome wire cool back down. Otherwise, it will snap and need to be replaced.

Last Wednesday at #noisebridgehackerspace#noisebridge#noisebridgesf .
Powering forward on an old project that will help other projects as well! I've clocked in a lot of hours hauling the high quality sound foam, helping make the hot knife foam cutter in the background, and slaying these little blocks to eventually mount in the #dorkroom , and maybe other places.
For reducing #reverb in a small room, #fractalfoam#shape should funnel in and trap a wider variety of #soundwaves than a regular zig-zag shape when mounted to a wall or towel panels. #hackit#domorenow

Today at @noisebridgehackerspace I thought I’d write a self help therapy blog about finally getting around to learning #python for reals!! There are so many great folks volunteering and teaching classes that there’s no excuse for people like me !! https://github.com/romyilano/learning_python_as_a_human_being/blob/master/README.md #hackerspace#selflearning#noisebridge#education
