At SexTechLab: “So how do you come with that?”

Some 60 developers, designers, makers and growth hackers came together on May 19-21 at 42, a coding school in Paris, for SexTechLab, France’s first sex hackathon with the tantalizing slogan “50 hours to innovate in pleasure”. 69 hackathoners signed up, including 20 from 42. The average age was 25 and notably gender-balanced. Marc Dorcel, heavyweight sponsor A surprise speaker opened the program on May 19—Grégory Dorcel, son of Marc Dorcel and CEO of the eponymous brand leader of France’s pornography industry, which became the event’s main sponsor just a few days before it launched, above more conventional hackathon partners (Viva Technology, Futur en Seine, Dagoma 3D printers). Porn with heart. Rocket Lab's Electron test flight succeeds: A 3D printed, carbon fiber rocket flew for the first time in New Zealand — Quartz. Taipei, Taiwan Crammed with bridal boutiques, tailors, and wedding studios, a short stretch of camphor tree-lined Zhongshan North Road is the epicenter of Taiwan’s once-booming wedding industry.

Drawn Yourself: Drawing Watercolor Portrait on Real Paper. Scotch Tape Lets You See Through Frosted Glass. There’s probably no better tool in the gadgeteer’s box than a roll of Gaffer Tape (or duct tape, if you don’t mind sticky or crumbly residues).

Scotch Tape Lets You See Through Frosted Glass

But what about its humble household cousin, Scotch Tape? Traditionally used for wrapping gifts or taping broken spectacles back together, it has another amazing talent. It can let you see through solid objects. If those solid objects are in fact sheets of frosted glass. If you have a frosted window that you need to take a peek through, tear off a strip of tape and press it down firmly onto the pane. I’m amazed we never saw this trick in a MacGyver episode.

In the not-so-distant future you will read of a scientific breakthrough in an area your daughter was excited about in school.

In the journal article you will click on the supplementary materials and be able to download all of the source code needed to replicate the instruments used to do the experiment. You will fire up your home 3-D printer to fabricate the equipment. Then, with a few more clicks, you will order any specialty supplies. By the weekend all the supplies will have arrived and now you and your daughter will have the fun of assembling the experiment and participating in state-of-the-art research for almost no money on a quiet Saturday afternoon. This exciting future of science is closer than you might think. The most powerful FOSH also include CAD (computer aided design) files that allow you to digitally replicate parts, or in some cases the entire device.

If you are a working scientist, it is in your best interest to share the designs for your hardware. Joshua M. Programme REPERE. Comment (ne pas) innover avec une noix de coco (2/2) Marc Dusseiller (plus connu sur le réseau comme dusjagr) est un pionnier du biohacking.

Open-source Lab

This guide details the development of the free and open-source hardware revolution and provides you with step-by-step instructions on building your own laboratory hardware. In the first two chapters displayed here, the author defines the basic terms of open-source software and discusses the rise of the open-source hardware revolution and how it impacts science before exploring five pragmatic advantages to joining the open-source scientific community for both your research in general, and most importantly, your equipment and instrumentation.

KresseKunst Ever wondered how to turn a simple webcam into a microscope, safely cultivate GFP bacteria, hack DVD burners to make your own nano and bio experiments, or how to use other cheap, easy to come by material in order to build an hydrometer (instrument to measure the relative density of a liquid), an incubator or even a bat detector?

Then you should check out the DIY pages on Hackteria‘s wiki or enroll into one of their workshops. Hackteria is a collection of Open Source Biological Art Projects started in 2009 by Andy Gracie, Marc Dusseiller and Yashas Shetty. They have since been joined by Anthony Hall, Urs Gaudenz, and a growing community of people keen on making experiments and developing their own projects in the field of biological art and science.

The wiki is an online resource for scientists, garage scientists, hackers and artists alike. HackteriaLab2011. Ingénieurs sans frontières. Echanges et réseaux. Les notions d’échanges et de réseaux traversent de nombreuses disciplines des sciences sociales autour de phénomènes centraux des sociétés humaines.

Echanges et réseaux

L’échange implique des accords entre des entités sociales (personnes, groupes, organisations) sur des partages ou des transferts concernant aussi bien des objets matériels, que des symboles (monétaires ou autres), ou des significations. Ces accords se fondent sur des bases très variables qui font l’objet de nombreux travaux en sciences sociales. EHESS - Centre de recherche médecine, sciences, santé, santé mentale, société. Le Cermes3, Centre de recherche médecine, sciences, santé, santé mentale, société, est un laboratoire multidisciplinaire consacré à l’analyse sociale des transformations contemporaines des mondes des sciences, de la médecine et de la santé ainsi que leurs rapports à la société.
