Though most of the project documentation is lost, Lenore from Evil Mad Scientist grabbed the above photo of an edible HackPGH cracker from when the project launched at the Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire, lined up in traditional hackerspace gourmet style, with a custom sous-vide rig, and very possibly with a suspicious canister of Open Maté near at hand.
An excellent reminder that most 3D printers are little CNC rigs that can be tasked with melting, squeezing, depositing, and dripping whatever you need, wherever you need it:
This weekend the fun comes to Pittsburgh! The first Pittsburgh’s Mini Maker Faire is this Sunday, October 23, Noon-6pm at The Children’s Museum. The event might be called mini but they have a mighty line up of makers who will be showing off their projects and offering workshops. You can check out the entire list of makers here.
Cheese Printer – Matt Stultz, one of the co-founders of HackPGH will be there demonstrating the cheese printer.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
