The open house was wonderful! We had a huge turnout full of prospective members, neighbors, and Hackerspace curious. It seemed like everyone finished the evening excited about the space the how they might want to get involved. Check out the photoset.

What's happening at AMT?

Here are a few pictures collected from our photostream over the last week or two:

Radio Shack contest voting is live!

Vote! Team West: Byte Blaster

Byte Blaster 

A few months ago several members of Ace Monster Toys worked together to create a laser pointer shooting gallery as an entry into a Radio Shack / Popular Mechanics sponsored contest. If you saw our booth at Maker Faire then you saw the awesome results of that collaberation. Well, the contest is now live and I suggest you check out the voting site to give yourself and Ace Monster Toys a chance at $1000 prize.

Smaug Lives!

After some very careful bubble removing work (pictured above), we fired up the laser and it lased! We successfully burned a spot on a piece of paper. Still to do:

1. Hook up current meter, to ensure tube isn't being over-driven

2. Clean & Align mirrors & lens

3. Level the bed (might already be ok)
