Tuesday March 11, 2014 at Hive13 – PhantomX Hexapod Robot Hacking

February 23rd, 2014 No comments

Join us at Hive13 this Tuesday, March 11, at 7:30pm for a ROBOT TAKEOVER!  We will be welcoming local software developer and robot hacker Carin Meier as our March 2nd-Tuesday guest speaker.

Carin will be showing off her PhantomX Hexapod, a frightening / awesome 6-legged walker from Trossen Robotics.  Hear the first-hand experiences of a new-comer to robotics on  building the kit from just plates, boards, and screws.  Carin will talk about the software to control it, and if everything goes well, she will also demonstrate running it via a laptop with Clojure.

Here is a teaser link to the first steps (towards world domination) taken by Carin’s hexapod: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUrZeJ39xjs

Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and those interested in learning more about this type of robot hacking are welcome to come to the meeting and this presentation, Tuesday, March 11, at 7:30pm.   (Find Us)

Cinci2600 Friday, December 6th @ 7pm

November 18th, 2013 1 comment

much pwningzCinic2600 is Friday, December 6th 2013 (the Friday *AFTER* the Thanksgiving holiday weekend) at its usual time and place: 7pm at the Hive13 hackerspace: 2929 spring grove ave in Camp Washington (known locally as The Anchor Building).

Cameron will be demonstrating an end-to-end assault on a residential network, from compromising the wireless network to getting a shell on the PC, and all of the mischief that can be caused along the way. I will be following up with some steps you can take to prevent some of these problems and how you can hopefully spot some of these shenanigans before something bad happens.

As always, if you have something to present or to demonstrate please bring it by :-)

Maps and other details about Hive13 can be found here. See you there!

August 4th, 2013 1 comment

Deconstruction Electronics Recycling Projects 4 All, the title, and the flyer say it all.

Join us on upcoming 3rd Wednesdays of the month between now and year end (8/21, 9/18, 10/16, 11/20 and 12/18) starting at 7:00 pm each night.

Member Nebbie will lead this outreach to those who are circuit bending inclined to come and take over the HIVE to celebrate their unique art objects, found art and the general weirdness that is DERPA.

Weirdo extraordinaire thejunkyardcatalyst (intentionally all one word) will be the chief circuit contortionist who will guide you through toy cracking and open keyboard surgery. We encourage you to bring you current project, or candidate toy to work on. We will have solder, irons, switches and jacks to sell you at cost to help you bend your toy.

Members, guests, and interested first-time-walk-ins are welcome to come to see and learn a new maker skill.  The HIVE is the place to learn, make, and collaborate on fun projects.  (Find Us)
