Dublin Maker

I featured 091Labs at Dublin Maker 2014, on July the 26th, while presenting my “Mobile Pillow Alarm Clock” (aka “smart pillow”) project.

Dublin Maker is a festival where inventors/makers sourced through an open call, have an opportunity to showcase their creations ranging from tech to art, craft and electronics.

The project I presented is a LilyPad-Arduino-based belt that can be wrapped around a pillow (or anything else) to serve four purposes:

15 July – Open Night @091 Labs

Weekly Open Night from 7pm and visit from Michigan State University student teachers.

This week our open night is a special one – we’ll be hosting visitors from Michigan State University‘s Master’s in Educational Technology course, discussing the applications of new technologies in educational environments. Come along if you’d like to join the discussion!

Welcome to the new-look site

I think it keeps with the hackerspace ethos if I upload it to the live server and roll with what I have. In my defense, the 091 Labs site had a great quantity of plugins used down through the years. Even loading this theme on the front page for the first time produced some bizarre results.

Right now:

  • The header is wonky in Internet Explorer 11 because of how it handles smooth scrolling.
  • The sidebar and nav options are woefully incomplete. The CSS and logic are there, but need to be connected.
  • I need to style sidebar items.
  • There is an extra checkbox, sometimes, in the comments section, put there by an old plugin.
  • No calendar or events roll.
  • The header could be more usable at mobile sizes.

And so on.

The point is that the site is now a work in progress. Please tread lightly, and report broken features to @091labs on Twitter.
