  • Project Name: Knitting Genes through the medium of Tweets
  • People Involved: Tree, Alan, Becky, Cheryl, and some back seat coders
  • Project Description: The twitter knitter was first constructed for Dublin Mini Maker Faire 2013. It hung around Tog, gathering dust and tangles, so Tree and Alan decided to give it new lease of life knitting genes! A gene is tweeted (with the hash tag and organism), then it's fetched by some python and converted into an image. The image is then sent to an arduino that manages the pins. A pin up emulates a hole on a punchcard, and down emulates the paper. This way the pattern can be sent to the punchcard knitting machine without having to alter the hardware. Someone then has to stand there, moving the carriage back and forth and a gene comes out by magic!

  • Project Name: Proto Go
  • People Involved: Paul Eustace
  • Project Description: Go or Baduk  or Wéiqí etc , is a turn based two person board game. The object is to strip the game back to it’s basics, to see what the proto-game might have looked like five thousand years ago, and to make it easier to learn. In essence : Each person places a stone on an empty position on the board. If this is beside one of the players existing stones then they now belong to the same group. If a stone or group of the other player is surrounded then it’s removed from the board. The player with the most stones on the board wins. There are other rules common to all board games. - it can’t go on forevers the game can end early by consent or by using rules to avoid having to fill in every stone you can’t have the same board position repeatedly Todo – need volunteers or victims to play. See how people learn the basics, Best way to see when stones are in a group, - do with electronics and blinking lights Later on life and death.

  • Project Name: Muscle Car
  • People Involved: Prathamesh Dhanpalwar Kevin O'Brien Kieth Mooney Dara George Shafi Shaikh
  • Project Description: The aim of this project is to control a RC car using muscles. This requires extraction of EMG signals from the body (hand in our case). The hardware and software was completely built from scratch during the time at the event and we were successfully able to control the car using 2 channel EMG amplifiers.

Prosomnia Streetlight synchronized window

  • Project Name: Prosomnia Streetlight synchronized window
  • People Involved: Niek van der Dussen Brian Nitz
  • Project Description: Hack Details: You know those LED streetlights and yard lights that everyone thought would be the environmental cat's pyjamas? They're crazy bright, they keep kids awake, guide bats, turtles and birds to their doom and go right through astronomer's narrow band light-pollution filters. We can't fix all of this in one weekend, but just maybe we could keep the light from shining into the kid's bedrooms by taking advantage of a unique property of LED lights, most can be switched very fast without damage. So imagine you could close and open your blackout curtains timed perfectly so they were open when the annoying outdoor light was off, and closed when it's on, 50 times per second or more! You could sleep in moonlight, wake to the natural light of sunrise but the LED would no longer be an annoyance. We can't open and close curtains that fast but we can toggle electroptical Kerr and Pockels cell window shutters that fast and some LCD and MEMs shutters might work. What you need to make it happen?: White LED Light Arduino modulator Fast electro-optical shutter: Kerr or Pockels cell, from an old (HeNe tube) laser printer or Q-Switched laser. Possibly an electro-optical MEMs device or an old LCD laptop screen if you can figure out how to toggle the TFT transistors fast enough. Doll house with window (for the demo)
  • Links to Code: Use Arduino blink example sketch, vary the blink rate to the LED. Use the same signal to modulate the window.

Open Source driver for USB Music Controller

  • Project Name: Open Source driver for USB Music Controller
  • People Involved: Harry van Haaren
  • Project Description: Many modern USB music controllers do not plug-n-play with Linux, and manufacturers don't often write Linux drivers. This project was to reverse-engineer a USB DJ Mixer, to allow it to be used on Linux with the Mixxx open-source DJ software.
  • Links to Code: Once finished, the driver for the USB Mixer will be upstreamed to the Ctlra library, which is an existing project to easily support multiple hardware devices: https://github.com/openAVproductions/openAV-ctlra
