The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit Show: The Happiness Project - Welcome to My Blue Zone|A-Infos Radio Project

Had a chance to hear Dan Buettner speak at The Richmond Forum this past Saturday night. Buettner is known for his work studying longevity and has developed the concept of Blue Zones - areas of the world where humans live longer than the rst of us. A corollary to his work on longevity is his study of happiness and his analytical approach to measuring happiness. Great program and tonight's show is inspired by his work unlocking the secrets of happiness. I promise that you'll be happier in two hours than you are right now, if you listen to tonight's show. Come on get happy! The Haberdasher Read more on Buettner's work: http://www.bluezones.com/live-happier/ Come On Get Happy The Partridge Family Come On Get Happy!

Structuring open hardware projects

Every successful open hardware project needs a solid organization structure at some point in time, especially when plan to produce and sell your project. In our “i3 Berlin” 3d printer project, we took some elements of the PLM (Product Lifecycle Management) concept and implemented it with open source tools like Github and Blender. Common project structure used in the product industry The concept of Product Lifecycle Management is the process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from its conception, through design and manufacture, to service and disposal. PLM is about how to handle versions, communication with users, etc. Every PLM has to be tailor made to the project and the team working on it. PLM is vital to organize open hardware projects to be more focused and efficient, yet being open and adaptive at the same time. Building a PLM is time demanding but will make your projects more and more efficient. Our experiences so far Our project is the i3 Berlin 3D printer, a remix of the Prusa i3. - It is an electromechanical project that is mainly built from printed parts and standardized sourced parts. - We don´t develop electronics, but we do design mechanical parts and make adjustments to the firmware. - We also sell our design as a kit, which need a manual and a bill of materials that is always up to date. - Furthermore we have to track issues and we want to be open for cooperation by other people. We used Blender to design the entire machine. - Blender is a 3D mesh modeler, where the industry uses solely parametric CAD software when it comes to electromechanical engineering. - Parametric 3D models are smart, where mesh models are stupid models you modify with smart tools. - Mesh modeling is a very suitable method, when 3D printing is the main manufacturing method. Design files are much easier to share among people and programs. - Cables are an intricate part of a moving machine which can be modeled well within Blender. - We wrote a plug in to generate a bill of material and developed a method to make a step by step visual manual with animation frames. Both BOM and manual are a part of the design file and therefore these will always be up to date. The rendered pictures from Blenders For communication we use Github. - The core ideas and design requirements grow over time in the wiki. - The submit structure of Github automatically takes care for a version control. - Git issues work as a support ticket system to track and solve problems. - Design guidelines make sure that everyone cooperating organizes their work coherently with the project. Future plans - make Blender more accessible by making tutorials directly focused on mechanical design. - connect the BOM with a database for logistics and price calculations and demand estimation, supply chain - continue work on OHM (open hardware management) toolbox http://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5594.html Day: 2013-12-29 Start time: 13:00 Duration: 00:30 Room: Saal 6 Track: Hardware & Making Language: en

Open source experimental incubator build up

This is a call for participation in a project aimed to build up an open source based experimental incubator which can be used for variety of food, beverage and bio hacking projects allowing for easy control and monitoring of internal condition like temperature and humidity. Working groups will be established to develop prototypes which can be easily and relatively cheaply assembled. Securing funding and establishing a portal to effectively share the news and knowledge within the groups and wider community will be major part of the first phase. One of the basic devices needed for experimenting with growth of variety of microbes for many different purposes ranging from bio luminescence art, magic mushrooms or to more frequently persuaded food and beverage fermentation is incubator. Ranging from the fields of extreme hard core bio-hacking to traditional home experimentation, device where one can easily control some of it’s internal conditions like for example temperature or humidity and record corresponding data is needed. Decently priced well established and supported open source version is not available yet. The aim of this project is to establish product which is developed by people and groups interested in the subject and which is shared by the community based on the open source paradigm and importantly continuously developed, so upgrade and update of future generations is secured. The long term goal is development of easy to assembly kit’s and complete device which people interested in can buy (from variety of entities, open source). This talk will be “officially” launching this project announcing it to the wider community calling for participation. The basic goals, budgeting and concepts for the first year or so will be established already, anticipating participation of people interested in, giving for sure some space for changes because of new people being involved. The short time goal will be to establish several working groups participating more intensively in design of first prototypes, securing funding for this effort and also building proper portal to share the news on development. For more details check our pages, this project will be quite intensively developed in the next few months, after few years of relative hibernation. http://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5566.html Day: 2013-12-28 Start time: 18:15 Duration: 00:30 Room: Saal 6 Track: Hardware & Making Language: en
