Board Repair Session

Tomorrow (Friday 6th) at 12.45ish onwards in Design Lab 1 at the Duderstadt we will be going through the lumenotbot boards used back in Festifools and doing repairs on those that need it. Even if you don’t have soldering / board skills, come on down, we can always use a few extra hands to help the ArtPrize effort.


Wednesday 23rd Jan. Yeaaaa

We’ll be getting together at the regular time of 12.30pm tomorrow (wednesday) in DL1.

I’m looking forward to hearing what came about last week.

Happy Holidays!

Electronic Lunch is now taking a break until we return in January.

I want to personally say thanks to all those who have contributed to this terms sessions, I have learnt a lot from experiencing the wide variety of expertise the lunches attract and I am looking forward to next years progress.

Starting in January we will be beginning our Festifools lantern project.

If you want to be involved in designing, manufacturing, and coding for a large scale public art project, join us next semester!


Lanterns & Kinects

Electronic Lunch is gonna be busy this week with an extra session this Friday afternoon.

Our very own Rachael Miller is going to be leading a more advanced Kinect hacking workshop on Friday 7th at 4pm at Design Lab 1, taking you beyond the basic computer applications for the Kinect and learn how to create your own customised projects. This workshop will be free and open to everyone in the university and out.


We will have a regular session on Wednesday at 12.30pm in DL1 where John Baird will be coming in to give us details of our next large group project.

We will be putting in place plans for next term where we will be building multiple lanterns containing RGB LEDs that synchronise their colour patterns with many others wirelessly for the full moon Festifools parade at the start of April. If you’d like to be involved in this large scale public art project, please come along – we’ll be developing these from scratch and learning along the way so no previous expertise is required.
