Here's a quick walk through that Steve did late in the evening
Reticulat1ngsplines shots this video of the dancing Aibos Gus brought to the Open House.
Steve took the 2 fps video from our security cameras in the two front rooms, accelerated it to escape velocity and combined it with some music by Spectral Hades, allowing your to see our whole 12 hour Open House in less than 8 minutes.
Dallas Makerspace is holding an open house to introduce the public to our space and the projects we've worked on this year. Projects like high voltage machines, experimental art, 3D printing, lasers, crafts, film and digital photography. Everyone (that means you!) should come out and meet us, see our space and our tools, and sit in on a few demonstrations. If you've never visited a hackerspace, now's your chance to find out what goes on and get in on the fun.
