At FAB10, the tenth international conference and annual meeting of the FabLab network held in Barcelona, the international FabLab community from more than 250 laboratories based in more than 40 countries will be united.

The FabCar and OSVehicle at FAB10 – Update: Pictures!

OSVehicle is proud to announce that TABBY will be the platform for the first FabCar. In collaboration with HP, OSVehicle and 5 other FabLabs around the world (Garagem FabLab – SP. Brasil, FabLab San Diego, FabCafe Tokyo, FabLab Manchester, and Vigyam Ashram in India) FabLab Barcelona is setting out todesign a concept car based on the needs and desires of the FabLab and Maker communities. The “FabCar” will be unveiled on July 2nd, at Barcelona’s Design Museum, DHUB. During the festival, OSVehicle’s spokesman Simone Cicero will be speaking on the Open Hardware panel. How to reach DHUB: Google Maps. Update: Here it is, with Prof. Pictures via: Fablab Barcelona, Thiago Kunz @ IAACBlog. Git Reference. Unlike centralized version control systems that have a client that is very different from a server, Git repositories are all basically equal and you simply synchronize between them.

Git Reference

This makes it easy to have more than one remote repository - you can have some that you have read-only access to and others that you can write to as well. So that you don't have to use the full URL of a remote repository every time you want to synchronize with it, Git stores an alias or nickname for each remote repository URL you are interested in. You use the git remote command to manage this list of remote repos that you care about. git remote list your remote aliases Without any arguments, Git will simply show you the remote repository aliases that it has stored. . $ git remote origin $ git remote -v origin git@github.com:github/git-reference.git (fetch) origin git@github.com:github/git-reference.git (push) Repository - Push a new local branch to a remote Git repo and track it too.

Rootless - wooden bike. Fadecandy — Micah Elizabeth Scott. Fadecandy's temporal dithering algorithm can create super-smooth fades and nuanced colors at a remarkably wide range of brightness levels.

Fadecandy — Micah Elizabeth Scott

The controller hardware updates every LED about 400 times per second to rapidly oscillate between nearby brightness levels for each color primary, gaining some additional brightness precision. This precision gets even higher when averaging over time or space, meaning that larger or more diffuse sculptures achieve even higher levels of precision in low-brightness colors.

I've seen stuff on the web where people turned the point generated from a laser pointer into a line for use in DIY laser scanning of 3D objects by aiming the beam through acrylic or glass rods, wine glass stems, or fresnel lenses.

Make a Line Laser using a Lego by cdmacy

It occurred to me to try using the little transparent rods that Lego sells, most commonly as the light saber accessory in the Star Wars sets. The diameter of the rod is about the same size as the beam. I rooted through my son's Legos and found blue, green, red, and yellow light rods to try. Everything worked well except for the yellow for some reason; that turned out really wide and faint. Watch out for bubbles. Someone suggested using filament. If anybody can try this experiment with a piece of 3mm transparent filament, I would love to hear the results! There is something aesthetically pleasing about the thought of creating a solution completely from 3D printing material.

_Patents for Music Instruments_

I started doing some research into musical instruments and I found that there is a whole lot of Science that goes along with this Art. Here is a discussion of some of the principal instruments in a swing band -- their history, their Patents and photos of DC area artists using them. Feel free to use our Patent Page to download a drawing to put on a Tee Shirt. Feel free to contact me if you have any comments, corrections, and the like --- or if you have any other Patent Diagrams that you want to share. The Fender Telecaster Starting in the late 1920s, guitar players experimented with 'wiring up' their instruments in search of greater volume and projection.
