Hackspace Group Projects

A list of open project ideas that people in the space can collaborate on and will benefit the space itself.

Flipdot Panel Project

Re-purposing second hand bus display signs. These old electro-mechanical signs have a wonderous sound and look about them, this projects reverse engineers the electronics required to drive these panels, builds new control hardware and software, then hooks an array of them upto a raspberry pi for an interactive display system.

For full details visit the Flipdot Project page


Lightning Strike Detector Project

It's amazing to see how many times lighting strikes around the world.

This project aims to build a lightning strike detector at Swansea Hackspace and add it as a node into the wider world lighting location detector network that record lighting strikes as they occur around the globe - and maps them link here.
The project itself will involve the building of our own lighting detector rig which will join the worldwide network and detect lighting strikes in and around the Swansea area.


Arcade Game Project

Bring back the 80s with PACMAN and STREET FIGHTER.

The aim of this project is to have a fully functioning Arcade Game cabinet working in the Hackspace. Think of all the old classics, Donkey Kong, PacMan etc and imagine being able to play those favourites while working in the space on your projects.
I'm sure it won't be too much of a distraction ;-) link here
