I should be angry that the market for homebrew game consoles is getting so crowded, but instead I can't help squeeing seeing this beautiful design.

I also love how they contracted actual game developers to make actual games, instead of counting on the community to make them for free, or including an emulator like most others.

The 400x240 reflective screen looks beautiful, and the whole thing is really well designed. I hope it will be an open platform.

@jmwright Screw that. You don't need to fabricate a board to test an idea using SM parts. Shown here is an attempt at generating a unique sound using hardware only.

Free-hand SM construction is not hard as long as you stay away from crazy small pin pitches and 0402 (and smaller) components.

Found a project that I hope takes off. If anyone is interested, you should help them!

Hi everyone!

ForgeFed is a project aiming to define a protocol and a vocabulary for federation of project hosting and collaboration platforms (forges), and get it implemented in the existing forges such as GitLab CE, Gitea and so on.

Federation is based on ActivityPub with some tweaks and new vocabulary :)

I'm working on a demo, implementing federation in a forge called Vervis. Earlier today I deployed 2 test instances for this! More details and links soon :)

Anybody have thoughts on the Arduino MKR form factor vs Adafruit's Feather form factor?

If you scroll down to the FreeCAD section, there are instructions on using the Mesh workbench to repair STL files that aren't water tight (manifold).

Someone should make an open and community-driven Stack Overflow alternative.

The flash gives the user some immediate feedback. Also, i can use my gym card.

Anyone know of an open alternative to QR Codes?

PiShot allows capturing high-speed strobe images using the Raspberry Pi Camera.

Coiling a twist-tie your around wire bundles like this can help keep things under control while you're prototyping.

The problem with the old prototype was the nozzle would drip heaps. Pumps now run backwards for a bit when they're done to suck liquid back up the nozzle - stole this idea from 3D printing.

The first edit from our New Zealand South Island tour is out. And there's more where this came from!

Makerdon

Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
