How I Open Sourced My Hamsters for Science

Determined to validate the oft-misguided claims of The Internet, I’ve spent the last month tracking my hamsters’ activity via a homemade Raspberry-Pi-powered Hamstrometer. And recently, I was approached by SuchWowTV to be featured in one of their videos!

If you’re interested in the details behind the build, you can head over to my blog and check out all of the pics and gifs I made of the build process!

Arduino Evening: Motor Control on Thursday, 20 March

Arduino Robot Base by Chris Palmer

Following the success of the Introduction to Arduino workshops, James Fowkes will also be running a new series of regular Arduino evenings, looking at specific aspects of the Arduino platform.

Great for anyone who’s been on the Introduction workshop and wants to play around more with this system, the first evening is on Thursday, 20 March, from 7:30 to 9:30.

This evening will focus on motor control, with James giving a short talk on the major kinds of motors you’re likely to encounter in your Arduino projects, including simple DC, brushless DC (BLDC), steppers, and servos, and how each one is driven. Then it’s time to get stuck into making things move!

You can bring your own Arduino and laptop if you want some hands-on experience, or you can watch and listen. Either way, you’ll learn a lot about motors and how to make your next project move!

Tickets are £5 and are available now. Spaces are limited, so buy your tickets now.

Class: Bitcoin – Getting Started (July)

BTC_LogoHave you heard about Bitcoin but don’t know where to start or how it works? Missed the first Bitcoin class?  On Friday, July 5th Andrew LeCody will be teaching a class that will cover the basics of the Bitcoin currency and network, including:

  • What is Bitcoin?
  • How to use Bitcoins, finding a good/safe wallet
  • How to get Bitcoins
  • What the heck is mining?

The class will start at 8pm and hopefully wrap up by 9pm. If we have time and interest we may also go over some of the intricacies of the protocol and software.

Speaker

Andrew LeCody is an Open Source Software enthusiast, developer and current President of the Dallas Makerspace. He originally started using Bitcoins in mid 2010, and through his involvement in that community discovered the hackerspace movement.

Bitcoin

Bitcoin is a digital currency, a protocol, and a software that enables:

  • Instant peer to peer transactions
  • Worldwide payments
  • Low or zero processing fees
  • And much more!

Bitcoin uses peer to peer technology to operate with no central authority; managing transactions and issuing Bitcoins are carried out collectively by the network. Through many of its unique properties, Bitcoin allows exciting uses that could not be covered by any previous payment systems.
