Build Tuesdays


Just a reminder, we are planning our first of many regular Build Tuesdays at 18:00 – 21:00 tonight.

If you want to chat and hangout or build something or show off what you have built, please come join us.

I recently bought the Internet of Things kit from Netram – anyone who is interrested in that sort of thing are welcome to try it out.

The guys at Netram also gave me a tin of proto-plastic, this is pretty amazing stuff, heat with hot water and it turns into clay, when cool it goes back to plastic.  I will bring this along as well for folks to try it out.

In order to make the house sustainable and buy cool toys (makerbots), we have been seeking industry partnerships and I received a letter on Friday evening from Enerweb ( stating that they would be willing to enter into such a partnership and sponsor the following, initially for 1 year:

  • Rental
  • Equipment – R10k per month
  • Bandwidth – R7k per month

This means that we can really get going!!!  Buckle up, this is going to be a crazy ride.
