Make protective device covers
Protect your gear in a self-made device cover. Materials, tools and instructions will be provided, bring your own device and we’ll work together to cover it up.
Trained tailor BamCe and amateur textiles enthusiast Olle from Forskningsavdelningen will be your hosts.
We will build engines. Stirling engines out of soda cans. Electrical engines out of broken hard drives. Perhaps even a steam engine. The engine is the limit.
phrst [frr:st] and Jonas [jonas] from Forskningsavdelningen will be your hosts and have done this before.
We will build a special kind of water flow. Quite special. An unbroken shiny arm of water. We will try to build this during Hacknight.
STG and Jonas from Forskningsavdelningen will be your hosts and have NEVER done this before.
Let’s build P2P web apps!
Following Mattias Wingstedt’s presentation we will figure out if it’s really that easy to build apps running in a P2P infrastructure and also what remains for the vision to become reality.
The table will also remain available throughout. Contact person: qzio of Forskningsavdelningen.
IPv6 is upon us!
Learn to set up IPv6. omni from Forskningsavdelningen will be our slightly whimsical guide.
Make art. At your disposal: Glue guns. Soldering irons. Screws. Nuts and bolts. The table will be full of dismantable junk goodies for you to repurpose. For inspiration, web search for any of the tool keywords and ”cat”.
VJ with Milkymist
The inventor, Sebastien, will show you how to VJ using Milkymist. Don’t miss his talk.
An unattended/unsurveilled table with locks, files, lock picks and various materials. Explore and if you’re lucky you could find someone who can help.
We are proud to present our fine speakers. More speakers will be revealed for much success and profit.
Use GPRS with Arduino
David Cuartielles, Arduino platform co-founder, equipped with a new GPRS library and a couple of modems, will explain how to make your own Arduino creations communicate with the world (you will get a chance to try it out).
Jonathan Baldwin will to tell us all about mesh network communities.
Jonathan Baldwin is researching and developing social networking tools to aid in the construction and sustainability of ad hoc and hybrid wireless mesh communities, through recycled hardware & DIY technology. Intrinsic social gaming and a peer to peer economy are introduced to create an environment of reciprocity, trust and interdependence, which are essential to the livelihood of the mesh network.
Researcher Marie Gustafsson Friberger wants to talk about Open Data, and what can be done with it.
Maker and researcher Tony Olsson will explain the state of the art of wearable computing, so-called softwear. He co-authored a book about it, Open Softwear.
Flattr + DIY!
Marie Axelsson [maloki], started out as an evangelist now working for Flattr, tells us a bit more how it can fit into the DIY world.
Seven ways to die!
Magnus Eriksson @monki
A human can die in seven ways: too hot, too cold, thirst, hunger, illness, injury… no internet.
To have a fun Hacknight, you need to do a little bit of work to have fun.
Ask people about stuff
There will be some food and Club Mate sold at the event. You may want to bring snacks.
Parking is limited. Norra Grängesbergsgatan is closed off for traffic 21-05. You might find some parking close by if you’re lucky.
