On second week, we showed how to built a microscope based on a webcam. In the way, we learned our own lessons. First lesson: Light. Microscopes needs light. So, if you aere going to buy one, try to look for one with some white leds. Also, you can add 1 or to of them in a […]
So… the D-day just arrived, and we were a bit nervous about what could happen with this first workshop. Friday night, we met at MADE to be sure that things worked as expected. But, as usually, unexpected problems arise that we could not fix just before the begin of the class. We were awake until […]
We organized a workshop to learn how to recycle electronic waste in collaboration with members of MADE. People learnt that there is a lot of useful electronic components on what we consider electronic waste. Using heat guns we were able to recover different elements which can be used later to build equipment: motors, chips, resistances, LEDs, […]
Using materials found at home, you can extract DNA from fruits or even your own. Here is the event description: We want to welcome a visiting biohacker from Poland who wants to share her knowledge, experience and to exchange visions from both groups. She is a genetician/oceanographer and recently initiated a bio-lab in Warsaw’s hackerspace. The workshop […]
Note: This announce references to BHA01 edition. If you want to build your own bioreactor to produce your own electricity, ink, food or whatever you may imagine, this is the course you were waiting for. Organized by the open wetLab from WAAG society, the course aim is to teach students how to build the basic […]
As part of the bioluminescent glowing bacteria bulb project leaded by one of our members, we organized a workshop to teach basic culture techniques. Workshop description: “Using the results from the lightbulb project, we will learn how to grow bioluminescent bacteria… and more important… keep them alive!” Meetup Event Some pictures of the event: […]
With the idea of hacking a microscope as seen in http://www.bidouille.org/hack/mousecam and use the CCD included in all mouses, we decided to organize this as our first workshop in our first meeting. However, there were problems with the software, even some friends helped a lot trying to fix it. Eventually, we realize that the most important […]
A student from the master in Advance Architecture came with the idea to cultivate bioluminescent bacterias. She found vibrio fischeri in squids bought in a local market. She was able to fabricate her own agar with local products and eventually grow some bioluminescent colonies.
