While NYC recovers from Hurricane Sandy, we've decided to reschedule the November Jam Session for the following weekend: Saturday, November 10. Snacks and drinks are still on us, but we're counting on you for fun hacks and good storm stories. Until then - stay dry and be safe!
The LAB (& co.) hard at work! Timelapse of the LAB’s Back Bay area during the Spacebrew Jam Session / Hackathon on October 5, 2012 from 3PM-8PM. The Back Bay was one of three areas used to build prototypes to test and develop Spacebrew - an open source dynamic toolkit for creating interactive spaces. Check it out here: spacebrew.cc
Prototypes made in the Back Bay area: • Heart-rate LED light (brightness based on pulse). • Motorized monitor flag that can be raised remotely (for getting a headphone-wearing coworker’s attention). • Motorized laundry line messenger system (clip a note to the line deliver to the other side of the room).

Heart rate monitor and LEDs talking through Spacebrew - the faster your pulse, the brighter the LEDs.
A monitor flag that can be raised remotely through Spacebrew. Helps you get your coworker’s attention no matter how loud their headphones are.
