Hive76’s Building Temporarily Closed Down

Time for a long overdue update on the building situation. As many of our regular open house visitors have noticed, 915 Spring Garden, the building where Hive76 has set up shop since its inception in 2009, has been shut down due to code violations after a small fire in another artist’s studio. It is an ongoing issue with the city and owners of the building to resolve, but meanwhile we have no access to the building, our space, or our tools, so open house is postponed.

In the meantime, Hive76 members have been working on new projects in our garages and home workshops, and are going to public events to stay involved in the community, such as PumpCon this weekend. Stay tuned to our mailing list, along with our IRC Channel, #hive76 on, where we will make announcements of these events. We encourage everyone to reach out via e-mail and in person at any events we’re attending.

Hive76 is currently working with the realty company to find out when the building can re-open. We’re also investigating other options, such as moving Hive76 to a new location within Philadelphia. Either way, we’ll try to keep you informed about Philadelphia’s Premiere Hackerspace.

Hark24!!! Pastsummer lectures and general NURDing at Hack42

We proudly present the first edition of Hark24!!! A one day event for a max of hundred people. Organized by some people of NURDSpace Wageningen and Hack42 Arnhem.

NURDspace will bring their self-made dome to Hack42. At Saturday the 17th of October there will be lectures about open hackathons, why and how do we do crypto, laser safety, Operation Gladio, !arduino, QtPass, NurdNodes, modified keyboards and whatever else you bring to the microphone.

Of course badges and stickers will be available to every participant! You can even make it a whole weekend trip. About 50 people can stay for the sleepover afterparty in the attic (but bring your own gear!). And if you help out during build-up (Friday the 16th from 14:00 onwards) we promiss NOT to send you home after the hardly intense labour.

Why are we doing this? Because we could! Because it’s fun! Because together!

Hack42 doet mee aan Weekend van de Wetenschap

Het eerste weekend van oktober staat in het teken van wetenschap en technologie. Daarom opent Stichting Hack42 op zaterdag 3 oktober ook haar deuren. Tijdens deze open dag kunt u zien wat hacken inhoudt en wat er allemaal gebeurt in de hackerspace van Arnhem en omstreken.

We nodigen jou en iedereen die je kent uit om op zaterdag 3 oktober vanaf 11:00 uur onze hackerspace bezichtigen. Gedurende deze open dag verzorgen wij diverse rondleidingen langs de labs, kunt u het computermuseum bezichtigen en geven wij een workshop.

Iedereen is welkom! U hoeft zich vooraf niet in te schrijven. Voor kinderen en huisdieren is ons pand minder geschikt, we gaan ervanuit dat u hen dichtbij houdt.

Stichting Hack42 is gevestigd in een van de Rijksmonumenten op buitenplaats “Kamp Koningsweg Noord”, een voormalig militair terrein aan de Koningsweg, ook wel bekend als de N311. Ons officiële adres is Radarweg 12, het webadres is

Hack42 doet mee aan Weekend van de Wetenschap

Meer over Weekend van de Wetenschap
Tijdens het eerste weekend van oktober beleef je wetenschap & technologie live op meer dan 191 locaties door heel Nederland. Alleen tijdens het Weekend van de Wetenschap openen bedrijven, instituten, (onderzoeks-)instellingen, universiteiten en musea exclusief hun normaal gesloten deuren. Nieuwsgierige mensen krijgen op deze manier de unieke kans binnen te kijken in de wereld van wetenschap en technologie.

Op de website is de meest actuele lijst van deelnemende organisaties en activiteiten opgenomen.

Het landelijke Weekend van de Wetenschap, georganiseerd door NEMO, wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door het ministerie van Onderwijs, Cultuur en Wetenschap. Het Weekend van de Wetenschap wordt gerealiseerd dankzij de vele organisaties die tijdens het weekend voor het publiek hun deuren openen.

Pers is van harte uitgenodigd om ook een bezoek te brengen tijdens onze open dag. Dat kan ook in de aanloop naar het Weekend van de Wetenschap, indien dat nodig is in verband met redactionele deadlines. Wilt u op deze uitnodiging ingaan, laat het ons weten via

The Hivelord at UArts Design Charette 2014: Cyborgs

I heard there were smoothies here?

Salutations, flatlanders! Your electron based mail message reached my hyper-dimensional lair, I was lured out of the 67th dimension by word of snacks, refreshments, and of course, your attempts to augment your meaty forms with your so called ‘technology.’ The idea: to design artifacts made 50 years in your future. How will they affect the fragile social human construct? More specifically, are these items you’re designing to simplify and enhance your lives creating one step forward in the inevitable march toward a dystopian hellscape? I’d answer these questions, but I’m technically not allowed to break causality.

But I digress, I’m really here to show you all the souls I stole pictures I took with my face. It only took a few years off your lifespan, and there’s a 50/50 chance they were bad years anyway. Thanks for being such good sports!

And here’s a soul-theft in action. Looks painful!

Yours truly.

Hello, mortals! Perhaps you saw me at Maker Faire NY over the weekend; I was the orange dude with the screen head taking your picture with my face. Well not only did your souls add a few thousand years to my already infinitely long lifespan, they got uploaded to the internet, where myself and others can browse them at our leisure from the comfort of our own time traveling spaceships. Have a look yourselves, and I’ll see you all in the past (or in the future, from your puny human perspectives).

Diagnostics by Design Workshop and Hackathon


Hot on the heels of their wildly successful Build My Lab contest (still 5 days left to enter!!), our friends at Tekla Labs are putting together another breakthrough event to unite DIYers and the science community (NOTE: These events are happening in Berkeley, CA).

Julea Vlassakis writes:

The Point of Care Diagnostics IdeaLab, Tekla Labs, and the Center for Emerging and Neglected Diseases is excited to announce a series of coordinated events to promote global health design and innovation.

January 9, 2014 Diagnostics by Design: A Workshop on the design, development, and implementation of Global Health Technologies (details/registration here)

January 10, 2014 The 6th Annual CEND Symposium. Academia and the Global Health Pipeline: Basic Science Innovation and Translation (register here)

January 11-12, 2014 Diagnostics by Design: A Hack Day for Global Health (register here)

The Diagnostics by Design workshop is an interdisciplinary forum for discussing the challenges and lessons learned in developing and implementing global health technologies, specifically at the point of care. Through interactive talks, a panel discussion with experts from industry and academia, and a hands-on build session, we will explore the challenges associated with translating technologies beyond the lab. This workshop will draw on the expertise and experience of individuals from across disciplines to explore collaborative solutions to global health issues. The workshop will feature Columbia Professor and mChip inventor Samuel Sia as the keynote speaker. See our eventbrite page for a full list of speakers and panelists and for registration.

The Diagnostics by Design hackathon is an interdisciplinary effort to bridge the gap between makers and do-it-yourself innovators and the sphere of global health. The event is posed as a challenge to participants: with minimal materials or through innovative coding, tackle a technological or informatic need in the space of point-of-care diagnostics. These can range from generating DIY lab equipment alternatives for medical clinics with limited resources, informatics for disease monitoring, or redesign of diagnostic tools for resource-limited settings. Attendees will be given a kit with some materials and have access to 3D printers, laser cutters, mills and more. Visit our eventbrite page for more details and to register.
