What do you want to do at the hackerspace, what projects are you currently working on?
I'm converting vehicles (karts, cars) to electric vehicles, I'm planning on building my own plane, I'm building my own DIY biochemical genetics laboratory, I have various online software projects, I love Lego, small hardware hacking, etc. in general. I have some space for most of these projects in my own workshop/garage/lab but a hackerspace may open up other opportunities for more projects.
- [Toxic Solder fume filter]
- Arduino 101
- Electronics 101
- Arduino powered 3D dremel prototyper (ala RepRap)
- stuffed animals (www.stuffyourdoodles.com) (with room to hide a fonera?)
I have a background in arts and crafts (especially jewellery design). My current obsession is to design and create my future home. Going from renovating an existing building, interior planning, domotica,... to designing and making the furniture, cutlery, cushions,etc... What I'm looking to find in the hackerspace is some new ideas, learn new technologies and crafts, or just to get some feedback on my project (while drinkin' some club mate ;-))
- Just finished renovating app'
- 6-Axes moving simulator platform using pneumatics(Design stage)
- Open source Penetration testing suite using PHP & Nmap (PHPCentaur)
- Open source OpenVPN PKI manager. (Kangu)
Background in IT (programming) and electronics. First thing I'll start with is repairing a broken Carver power amplifier. Next steps will be creating a DIY variable power supply and a function generator (in order to create some kind of electronics lab workbench). I'm also interested in programming on the Android platform, building wifi antennas, etc ... I hope the hackerspace will be a place where I can continue to work on several projects because right now I don't have sufficient space at home to do this.
Things I'm interested in:
- LED, blinkenlights
- Arduino related stuff (and learning to code again)
- Home automation
- Building antennas
Embedded systems design (though I don't digg RF), programming C on the AVR, JAL on picmicro. I enjoy coding in python. I Know about web programming. Circuit design using EAGLE and gEDA.
Bought a Jee Node (Arduino clone with RF module) and some individual RF12B RF transceiver chips to play with, pager motors and egg shaped photo frames and I'm looking for time to tie them all together.
Wifi Connection to Wireless Antwerp
First but far most important in this project is getting the appoval of the landlord to put an antenna on the roof.
