Full Steam Ahead

It’s been a while since this blog was written, and there are a lot of developments in the life of the Taipei Hackerspace. Finally we are a real “space”, having rented out a nice little 37 ping (~130 sq. m) appartment/office space, where we get access to a same sized roof as well.

You can see how it looked when we got it on this album.

Since then the place have seen a lot of donated furniture and tools, activities, people start to work on their projects. We had our first Open House, which got more people in, even if the place is open all other times as well.

"Our first Open House"

The address is 太原路133巷26號4樓 / Taiyuan Rd, Lane 133, No 26, 4th Floor, or here’s it on the Google Maps. Can ring +886-2-2550-7630 any time to see if anyone’s there, and come by if there is.

"Walking direction from MRT ZhongShan Station"

There are quite a few interesting projects goig on already:

  • Wireless Facebook like count display
  • Sous vide machine
  • Big bunch of LED works
  • Aquaponics
  • Robotics
  • Getting traffic and song list data from FM with Software Defined Radios (SDR)
  • DIY Radio telescope, and lab equipment

You can find more information on website, the Facebook and Google+ pages, and the mailing list. The code written for the projects will likely be in the Github repo for the ‘space.

Also thinking about doing a few training courses in programming, electronics, mechanical desig, photography, or whatever knowledge people would like to contribute.

So, what would you like to do?
