This week’s episode featured:
- Phil has an exciting update on his tracking and pursuit of radiosondes.
- Jim shares his experiences with import 7 segment LED displays and the steps he’s taken to increase reliability.
- Andrew’s inadvertent car battery charging Bluetooth hack
- Andrew shared laser cut ellipses that when put together perpendicularly form a novel shape that can roll freely
- Jim referenced a poem called The Deacon’s Masterpiece, or The Wonderful “One-Hoss-Shay” by Oliver Wendell Holmes an ode to perfect engineering – every part as strong as the rest, which led to a discussion of Henry Petroski’s books.
- GailJo started a discussion about “The Christmas Star” conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter (which brought us back to Andrew’s car battery in the end)
- We welcomed MACE, Workshop 88’s newest Patreon member.
(You can join us from anywhere too!)
