We are getting ready to re-open for face to face meetings. Members have been busy during lockdown repairing machines and getting rid of excess equipment. We should have two CNC machines, a Vinyl Cutter and our laser cutter ready for members to use. One of the jobs was to re-fit some of the roof insulation tiles.


Internet of Things

We recently acquired some photon devices from One of our members has installed a unit in the Hackspace connected to two PIRs and Temperature sensor. This device connects to the Hackspace wifi and enables the device to be re-programmed remotely and the data streamed to a site and graphed. During the lockdown this has enabled some degree of remote monitoring. If you are interested in this type of project, then come on down when we re-open to new members. Current data is shown below.

Virtual Hackspace Tour

During the COVID-19 lockdown the Hackspace has been closed to new members and has only been open to existing members with a valid reason for access. One of our relatively new members, Max Ruffels, has created a virtual tour which is on our YouTube channel and has a link from our members page. If you want to see our resources, check it out and come down for a tour when we re-open.
