Hackaday Podcast 132: Laser Disco Ball, Moore’s Law in Your Garage, Cheap Cyborg Glasses, and a Mouse That Detects Elephants
Hackaday editors Elliot Williams and Mike Szczys debate the great mysteries of the hacking universe. On tap this week is news that Sam Zeloof has refined his home lab chip fabrication process and it’s incredible! We see a clever seismometer built from plastic pipe, a laser, and a computer mouse. There’s a 3D printed fabric that turns into a hard shell using the same principles as jamming grippers. And we love the idea of high-powered lasers being able to safely direct lighting to where you want it.
Take a look at the links below if you want to follow along, and as always, tell us what you think about this episode in the comments!
