Here’s a quick wrap up of the Interactive Cuddlefish project I worked on with artist AK Airways for the SXSW party at the Arthouse. This massive inflatable sculpture was connected to a big red button which would change the sequences of the LEDs blinking inside. It was a fun project, but not without its challenges. Details after the break.

Let’s get lazzzoring every Monday night! Come get some work on your projects on this laser focused* open hack night.

The laser will be available on a first-ready first-served single job basis. If you haven’t been trained on the laser you will need to enlist the assistance of an operator. Look for the hacker with an eye patch.

* see what i did there?

I really enjoyed Saturday’s “Fire The Lazzzor!” class and wanted to share a couple of pictures sent in by clever students. Herb made a tiny pizza box on 120lb kraft paper. What normally took 15 minutes by expert hands completed in just over 1 minute on the laser. Dustin made a cool acrylic cut and etch of the unofficial logo of the University of Florida’s geology department. The projects all came out really well and it was a blast to meet and work with everyone.

This weekend’s class is already sold out, but stay tuned for there’s another one on June 12th. Also don’t forget to get your costume on next Saturday!

Here’s a simple paint program I made using canvas. It’s a pretty blatent ripoff of another one that a friend showed me today, but unfortunately I don’t have the URL handy. (Sorry, I’ll update in the morning!) The framework makes it pretty simple for you to add your own tools. Click on for source.

Update: Harmony was the inspiration I was looking for!
