Last night’s hacknight had a special visitor: Sonny Jeon, the developer behind grbl – “a free, open source, high performance software for controlling the motion of machines that make things and will run on a straight Arduino.” It is loaded on the Arduino running our Shapeoko 2 Mill (thanks, #INVENTABLES!) as well as many many [...]
Greetings out there, makers and hackers!
Tritium Laboratories (aka H3 labs) a fellow SpaceFed hacker/makerspace from El Paso, would like to pay us a visit. Unfortunately the time that works best for them is Saturday 26 October: a date we are not scheduled to do much of anything on.
They want to come up [...]
Thru a problem with PNM, the power is out and it will be at least Monday(They said maybe Wednesday) before the power is back on.
So, Sunday Night Hacknight is canceled, along with the organizational meeting for Hacker Scouts. The BoD still needs to decide if we are going to have the General Meeting.
This year, we will be continuing our annual ‘Techmas’ theme for December’s hack-nights. What is Techmas? They’re open craft nights; you can come and make decorations from old hardware, fabricate hand-made gifts, or plan out the schematic for your incredible light-display.
So, here’s the unofficial and rather free-form schedule of Techmas Events:
4 December (Tuesday) [...]
Lastnight during hacknight we played a little bit with the small (5×5) vaccumformer (DentiFormer) i picked up off of craigslist. Its heater coil is burned out, and we didn’t have any of the proper thermoplastic sheets for it, but hunting around the lab we were able to find some various disposable meal containers, and water [...]
Its been on my mind for a while that we have been running hacknights here at Quelab about twice a week for over 2 years, And we still get questions as to what “Hacknight is?”
Basically its part OpenHouse, part generic project work time, and part social time to talk about ideas and projects with [...]
Quelab wants to invite you in to play with lightpainting. (basically long exposure photography in the dark, where you can use led/lights/phones/lasers/glowsticks to litterally draw in four dimensions!
Cost is just our usual hacknight fee + a fee for a memory card(which you get to keep with your digital creations on it) [...]

Cost is $65 ($40 for members), and includes an Arduino Uno development board, prototyping board, and support electronics like LED’s, switches, transistors, and wires. Class participants [...]
March of the Robots is here. Come build a robot minion during the month of March and we’ll show them off at our March of the Robots event on March 31 from 6-9pm. There’s been talk of BEAM Bots and photo-voltaic awesomeness. Want a Dalek to serve you? We can build [...]
Tuesday the 20th! Quelab is taking a step back from our more usual, high tech, and going for an event that can appeal to everybody, from high-tech uber geek to causal crafter. All ages, (although there may be some semi dangerous tools, and supplies that may not be appropriate for super young kids without supervison/help. [...]
