Sadly, there is no sound, but the video is amazing. Check out Brian’s other videos on Vimeo or at his website ineedcaffeine.com.
This weekend I hosted a post-Halloween kit building party at MightyOhm HQ.
Nine close friends built Conway’s Game of Life kits from Adafruit Industries. This is my favorite kit for these kinds of workshops because it’s easy for beginners to complete in about 2 hours, and when everyone is done, you can wire all of the kits together to create one large cellular automata display. The last time I helped people build this kit was at a Make:SF workshop at the TechShop in Menlo Park.
I wore my Halloween costume for most of the afternoon. What am I? Most people on the streets of San Francisco had no idea…
And lastly, a video of the 3×3 matrix in action:
Three people had little to no soldering experience at the beginning of the afternoon. Everyone who came went home with a working kit. Success!
This week I finally got a working copy of the video of my talk from NOTACON 6 about hacking the Asus WL-520gU wireless router. You can either watch the embedded video above or follow the link below to Vimeo. If you don’t like either option, you can also download the m4v source file from here (thanks Vimeo!).
Special thanks to Media Archives for recording my talk!
The feature list is very impressive:

I am completely blown away by this project. Has someone invited Steve to the Maker Faire?? I want to see this thing in person!
Check out his site and prepare to spend at least an hour looking at all of his plans and construction photos.
