Open Meet and Hack Day

This is our regular Sunday afternoon "club meeting" for Techspace members to meet and hack around with their projects and group projects.

Visitors are welcome to drop in between noon and 2pm and see what the TechSpace is all about. It is helpful if you join this meetup.com group and RSVP here with a note about any special interest, so we might have someone down at the Space on the day who can address this.

    Chris and I worked on the turntable for the rep rap project while Ken continued using the printer to construct parts. We briefly met Hugh and Marlo. Chris unfortunately left before we saw some results. We ran into a problem with the compiler of the Leo stick print library. It cost us a couple of hours because the ardruino.cc site was down. Once the site came back on line, the problem with the core library was documented, as was the problem with the upload to the Leo stick. Essentially you need to lie to the compiler/loader and tell it you are uploading to a different arduino.

    Dave steered us at the example for the stepper motor, and we hooked into the api. Toward 4 pm, we got a result, with the Leo stick actually trying to move the motor. We left it there to pick up on Wednesday night. I left Ken soon after to lock up. I learned a lot from the session, and enjoyed myself immensely.

    Lots of activity by attendees as usual.

    Also, Hugh and Marlo, from NSW dropped in. Hugh demoed his Ninjablocks (http://ninjablocks.com/), and hopefully Marlo will do so again at a meeting here in the near future, perhaps with luck at our upcoming MakerCamp in late March.

    I thought Ninjablocks was an excellent platform to inspire people, young and old, to get into tech - definitely the best I have seen. I would love to see us demo this to schools or run a few school holiday program sessions based around these.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
