Make your own device by Huang Zhenxin

Teacher Huang is now a regular presentor of Wednesday open night in XinCheJian. He brought a lot of his home made devices. The photo is a wireless powered LED submerged in water. The power source is hacked from a electronic hot plate. Amazing ingenuity!

The World's First Pop Up Hackerspace in a Container

September 8th, 2013 § 24 comments § permalink

Creative Carnival in Shanghai. We have done it and launch it over the weekend! It has been a success attracting a lot of visitors interested in 3D printing, robotics and Maker Culture! The pop up hackerspace will start its journey around China after the Shanghai Maker Carnival on Oct 19-20.

Lining up to see Maker’s Works!

Paul 创造了世界上最贵的,也是独一无二的老鼠旅馆。此旅馆用单片机做的,会红外感应老鼠的到来。老鼠一进门,大门就会自动锁上,只有人类才能放它出来。

Also, 100 earth worms are added to help process the organic matter in the system. Hope they can survive with constant ebb and flow. 🙂 IMG 3260 Finally, over 300 Chinese green, tomato, cucumbers, eggplants, and sun flowers are transplanted and we should be ready to harvest in about 4 weeks. IMG 3253
