Ireland's Hackerspaces and Makerspaces (091 Labs - Galway, Belfast
Hackerspace, MilkLabs - Limerick, Nexus Cork and TOG - Dublin) have been
asked to build and man a temporary hackerspace during the MindField -
International Festival of Ideas (http://www.mindfield.ie/). MindField
will take place over the weekend of 29 April - 1 May in Merrion Square.
During MindField our temporary hackerspace will provide a range of
events where festival participants can learn about diybio, 3D
printing, basic electronics and micro controllers, electronic
fashion/crafting and open data. These events are included in the
festival schedule (http://mindfield.ie/festival-schedul/).
In parallel with these events we have an opportunity run a Hardware
Hacking Challenge. In this challenge we will try to engage a group of
willing hacker, makers and festival participants in the challenge to
create or construct interesting or innovative projects out of recycled
hardware. We are trying to source interesting materials, electronic
devices or equipment that can be used to based projects off or as
sources of components.
We are particularly interested in devices that contain various types of
transducers which can then be hooked up to micro controllers and
computers. We're not looking for normal computer equipment or servers
we've got lots of that, but more unusual stuff that people have lying
If you think you've got something we might like contact me off list.
