Goings on at the Because We Cannery

First Eat Food Talk Shop went great!

What do cities of the future, light fixtures, wearable computers, and 3D printed flutes have in common? They were all things shown off at our first Eat Food Talk Shop!

We're in the middle of a job where we're making these 'city of the future' themed cubicle wall screens. That's something we'll be posting about soon, but we showed everyone that project, talked about the workflow to get them out quickly (there are many!) and then showed off the new vacuum hold-down system Frank has that helped us in production for them.

Paul brought along drawings and pictures of the range of light fixtures he's currently working on. They are these neat Japanese-inspired lanterns.

An Instructables intern dropped by and showed off the wearable display he's working on. It's a machine-washable LED grid!

Colin showed off some 3D printing research he did while at MIT. It's a flute anyone can play programatically created and then printed in resin. Cool!

Several other folks dropped by, talked shop, ate BBQ, asked questions and threw around ideas. So the first Eat Food Talk Shop was small, but successful, and a lot of fun. We're going to move it to the second Thursday of every month (Lots of folks couldn't make it on Friday) and hold the next few here to get some critical mass going. You should come and show off what you're working on next time!
