Last weekend, I had the great fortune to visit All Hands Active, an up-and-coming hackerspace in Ann Arbor, Michigan. When I arrived, they were just wrapping up a planning meeting for the upcoming Ann Arbor Mini Maker Faire. They have some excellent plans in the works, but made me promise not to spill the beans. Afterwards, they showed me some of their current projects, including:
A robotic car built using a hacked RC toy car and and Arduino, and in the background, a larger robot made of scrap parts, that will be powered by a hacked Xbox.
A tank drum, built from an unused propane tank (with a nice making-of video)
A spray painted mural for a top secret upcoming project.
