20160511 deskbreezeFor Gerhard the windtunnel started as a teaching device for the youth sailing weeks of his sailing club. The prototype was presented at the 2016 Maker Faire in Vienna where he received positive feedback. He plans on starting a Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2016.

You can easily show airflows at a sail or the wing of an aeroplane with the mini wind tunnel DeskBreeze. You can use the wind tunnel as a teaching device.

The idea for the wind tunnel was born in 2015, for the youth sailing weeks in our sailing club (Nautic Club Austria). Gerhard Fließ built a prototype made from plywood and cocktail straws and was surprised by the smooth airflow in the wind tunnel. In 2016, he developed the current version made from aluminium profiles and honeycomb.

He presented the wind tunnel at the Maker Faire 2016 in Vienna, where he got very positive feedback. Therefore, the “gimmick” for himself shall become a project for all.

In 2016, Gerhard will start a project on kickstarter, where you can support a kit.
This website will serve as a platform for the community evolving around DeskBreeze.

On his website you will find more information about the hurdy gurdy being build. And what a hurdy gurdy is… 😉

Weather station cube

2 - weather station cube

Hi Makerbeam+Tinkerforge-Team,

the simplified use of makerteam+tinkerforge equipment makes it possible for me to build an easy weatherstation cube.
Inside power for 6 hours, red brick+2master bricks and some sensors:
– temperature
– humidity
– barometer
– ambient light
– uv light
– co2
Especi3 - weather station cubeally the last sensor (co2) makes fun in meetings.
Next step is an traffic light for “bad air”

 

Greetings and thanks for creativity environment!
Thor van Ottensen

Fanless PC

20160203 fanless PC3

A customer sent us these pictures. Wim mentioned the following in his mail: “Recently I built a PC ‘Case’ with MakerBeam for a completely fanless PC. Attached are some pictures you can use for your website (if you want to). I mainly used 200mm beams, a fanless ATX power, a mITX board and a fanless CPU Cooler. The MakerBeam frame will be paneled with plexiglas covers (top already done in pictures). MakerBeam was great for this project, light weight products, extremely solid, flexible in design and no machines needed.”

Circular Knitic

Circular Knitic is a completely open source and open design circular knitting machine that is produced by using digital fabrication tools, and thus, allows to be replicated by everyone, who has access to a 3d printing and laser cutting. By using digital fabrication and makers’ tools, like 3D printing, laser cutting, MakerBeam, and Arduino, we have designed an automated and replicable circular knitting machine.
