Sorry for failing to post on this blog. Hackerspacekl is going to host a python meetup this weekend!!!
This is python monthly meetup. This time we going to have it in here. This time we going to have a free flow event.
We will start with a talk, to be confirmed. Then a series of knowledge sharing, not limited to talk, and show and tell of your project done in python.
Talk that we have confirmed is
- Dexterity on Plone by either kagesenshi / kaeru
- Using elasticsearch with python by yours truly
- Django related topic by renyi
If you drive I recommend that you share a car, if on public transport, take a LRT to Taman Bahagia, and that Bus 626 to uptown, or take a taxi from there.
House rules applies, non members can’t use the soldering iron or the components. But they can use the room. But we are python meetup, so we definitely not going to need that.
The event detail is in http://www.eventbrite.com/event/3194836843

Yet another electro-mechanical lamp/light project. A vortex lamp for your desktop, living room or as a night light.
Similar to how a magnetic stirrer works, a motor will spin a permanent magnet creating a spinning magnetic field. Placing a ferromagnetic metal within that field will cause it to spin as well. The metal spins without making any physical contact with the magnet or motor. The spinning motion of the metal stirs the water in the glass, creating a twister/vortex effect.
The stirrer used is a paperclip, coated with epoxy (to prevent rusting)
Parts are pretty basic. The (somewhat) difficult thing is sourcing for the Neodymium magnet . Any kind of magnet won’t do, especially those ferrite fridge magnets. It has be a neodymium magnet for it to work. Or at least the old school samarium cobalt magnet (if you can find one). I got mine from a dead hard drive. Other source of these magnets would be those magnet therapy bracelets (though the price is an utter rip-off). If not, you’re going to have to shop online as neodymium can’t really be purchased off the shelf (at least in this part of the world).
