Here’s an in-depth New Yorker article about Graphene for those who might wonder what the hype is about or how to make it yourself (Zhiwei Peng’s work described near the end of the article).
It is with great sadness that I pass this farewell notice along:
Craig Cook recorded the most recent TriEmbed meeting’s presentations about C Preprocessing with the Arduino IDE, custom tools for laser-cut acrylic enclosures, getting results from the T962/T962A reflow ovens, and a tool being developed to allow easy bicycle wheel truing.
After being crunched through Handbrake they’ve been put on Youtube. Details of these and past meeting archives are on the TriEmbed Meetings/Archives page.
(By the way: smart phones don’t appear to render the menu bar of the TriEmbed web site’s main page, turning the whole thing into a set of three parallel lines near the upper right corner of the page. Clicking on that drops the nested menus for meeting, email, project info, etc, that is more obviously available with a desktop browser).
This Monday’s meeting will feature short (5-10 minute) talks/demos aimed at giving us ideas for future, in depth treatments as well as things to chat about during the latter portion of the meeting. There will also be a blue sky session to explore ideas for an area parts exchange or similar mechanism(s) for helping people lay hands on needed parts and shed their surplus. Meeting details here.
