We’ve been accepted for Maker Faire UK 2015

Yes, we will be making a return to the Life Centre in Newcastle near the end of April to show off spacehack again and bring some interesting new stuff too.

Our setup from last year

Th consoles are being upgraded and we should soon have four consoles fully functional. We’re hoping that new for this year will be: up to four player games or at least two simultaneous two player games, improved gameplay and streamlined startup, and then mostly just some bug fixes.

Bob has also mentioned that he plans to bring along an “out of body experience”. The fine details are being kept top secret right now but if all goes well, this should be ready to go for April too.

We can’t wait to see you there.

OSHUG 37 at Sheffield Hallam Uni

On Thursday evening I went to Sheffield to attend OSHUG 37 which was hosting talks from robot army commander Ben Gray and pirate captain Paul Beech, amongst others, compered by writer Gareth Halfacree – all good friends of ours. Video from the event is here: [YouTube] – do have a look at just after the 30 minute mark when I turn up unexpectedly on the projector screen – there was a shout out for Nick Moriarty too!

Was very good to catch up with Ben and Gareth, as well as Aaron from Oomlout, Paul and Gee from Pimoroni, Adrian and Patrick from DoES Liverpool, Andrew Back from Wuthering Bytes, Jeremy and Simon from Embecosm and more – beers in the Rutland Arms afterwards being as much an integral part of the event as the talks themselves.  What a great Maker community we’re a part of.
