A great first talk at the first OSHUG from David May, of Transputer and Occam and now of XMOS fame.

Handsets registered to our local GSM network.

Rain has a crack at soldering surface mount components by hand. Very tricky!

Adam Sampson talks about an LED display on a pair of concurrencyCC boards. Amazingly this is driven by some 20 Occam processes running on a modified Arduino with only 2K of RAM. We'll learn more at tonight's Open Source Hardware UG.

"Hardware development methods are about a decade, possibly two behind software ones" — true! "Hardware development people don't communicate too well both at the human level and the engineering level" — harsh, but fair, but as Saar explained, this is mainly due to the lack of tools with mechanisms for interchange, version control and the equivalent of agile processes: www.boldport.com/blog/?p=348

for our session we worked on the story of breadboarding a project using kits donated by oomlout.co.uk, documenting them in an EDA tool (Eagel, KiCad, DesignSparkPCB or Fritzing) and uploading them to solderpad.com oshug.org/event/oshcamp

A 555 Timer, a capacitor, a resistor to make an LED breath in and out. It's a bit squished after being in my rucksack. This project is documented on SolderPad.

A lovely binary clock installation from OmerK made using tupperware boxes and an Arduino^W PIC16.

At OSHUG #18 - Open Source Hardware User Group, C4CC, London: oshug.org/event/18

Chris Dalby shows OSHUG the Current Cost Bridge, an affordable mass-market device prototyped on Arduino in association with www.tinker.it/blog/. The production device is an Arduino and ethernet shield in an enclosure the size of a matchbox, open for tinkering. Very cool!

another of Rain's wonderful wearable computing creations. Some of her smart observations, here: rainycatz.wordpress.com/2011/06/21/some-thoughts-on-sensi...

A conductive mesh, similar to that used on microwave oven doors the size of the perforations in the mesh are much less than the microwaves' wavelength, most of the microwave radiation cannot pass through the door, while visible light (with a much shorter wavelength) can.

Al's first attempt at using the hotplate for surface mounting, kept to show some of the pitfalls of using such very small components at home!

Some kits we put together for OSH Camp (Open Source Hardware) London.

The software/hardware duality of XMOS platform means this single generic chip can process mouse, keyboard, USB, Network as well as driving a display all from a single chip. Amazing!

Using OsmocomBB's RSSI firmware to monitor the local GSM network.

OSHUG #11 hosted by Omer & friends at Kent University at Canterbury oshug.org/event/11

RS DesignSpark Presentation

It was dark, so most of my shots were blurry, but this gives a sense of the excitement as David opened his suitcase of schwag!

oshug.org/event/11 was held in what could be a James Bond villan's lair.

GSM base station transceiver.

In the process of being refurbished. They test satellites in here!
