21 Mar 2017
First, some good news – we’ve made several improvements to our GoodEnoughCNC Hybrid, which are simplifying the design and making the machine more robust.

A while back, when Musti and Boštjan were visiting the Ars Electronica festival in Linz, we recieved a package of gluten for testing with Vitaprint - our 3D Bioprinter.

We plan to run several pilot projects to establish a good practice for setting up local digital...

We created an integrated version of the bGeigie device, a mobile survey Geiger counter, by Safecast, who are working to empower people with data about their environments. Our PCB is based on original design by Safecast. We removed various breakout boards and instead placed most of the components directly to the PCB. Our design uses RedBear Duo(https://github.com/redbear/Duo) as a central...
