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 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.

Join or login to comment.

    Great to have new members David Froemel and Elisa Young attend, and sign up.
    One discussion and outcome of the day was to refine our ideas about a mechanism for admitting members and visitors into the building without having to go downstairs to let them in, or require them to buy a $150 RFID key. See the pic: we are working on designing a mechanism in 2 phases. The first is held fast onto the door frame by outward pressure onto its inner edges. It will depress the door handle in response to a member's GCTS RFID key. The second phase is to alert us via NFC signal and video link so we can activate the handle depress remotely from our room. A variant of the device is to have the depress mechanism located on a robot that would cross the hall and depress to door handle, thus ensuring that the mechanism is not afixed to the door at all.
