I’ve written a short article (in German) for the blog of the Arduino Group Hannover.

Addendum to the last post: Philip Steffan from c’t-Hacks (the organizers of the MakerFaire Hannover) took some photos of Admiral Ravensdale and me.

This was a exhausting, but very inspiring and funny weekend at the MakerFaire Hannover 2014. We had a lot of good discussions at our booth and with other makers.

Some random impressions after the break

The Arduino Group Hannover is again on the MakerFaire Hannover. This time the faire is two days long (and it is not sooooo hot as last year).

Here is our booth:

I took the photo just after the opening. During the day one couldn’t see the booth, especially the part with the gameduinos.

On this long weekend I continued to work on the Earthquake-O-Meter. I found an old wine box, for which I cutted the cover (see “The First Cut is the Deepest“). The wood of the box was too thick, so that I had to saw two holes for the servos.

For a new steampunk project I need a cover with inscription for a box. The box shall contain a RaspberryPi, an Arduino and two servos (for the beginning – perhaps I will add a NAS and some other stuff). At Die Werke everyone has the possibility to use a laser cutter (after a short introduction course).

For this first version I used material from Kraftplex. Here is the result:

Someone has stolen my instructable! Stolen Instructable. Any possibility to hit this person?

Edit: meanwhile (2014-02-19) the stolen instructable seems to be deleted. Thanks to all who supported me!

Yesterday I mastered a steampunk workshop, where we created some USB sticks in the established design Laboratoire LeMath. Five participants (and me, too) had a lot of fun while sawing, filing, gluing, drilling, polishing, and talking.

Some pictures below the break.
