== [[Lockpicking Door]] ==
  
Description: The space will need a better way to keep track of who has access to come and go as they please.  Keys are not an option.  Key fob systems and other RFID technologies offer a way to control what a person has access to. 
+
== [[Ceiling / LED Awesomeness]] ==
  
Details: Construct a system that uses an RFID reader to grant access to the main door.  The fob is also used to open other areas of the space depending on the member.  OPTIONAL: build in a second factor authentication system.  OPTIONAL: Construct a man trap so only one member can enter at a time.

RFID tags sound great to me. A swipe card would be tolerable, but I don't think those are too robust (not that RFID are perfect). A man trap sounds like a space-hog to me, and a little bit overzealous for our purposes, especially if we're going to have open sessions and classes and such. Maybe all members should just flash their badges even if the door is already open? We could tie this into the irc bot so people could query who is at the space. That'd sortof incentivize proper "status updating" with the door. --[[User:Berticus|Berticus]] 01:30, 29 November 2009 (UTC)

There seem to be no kits out there for the non-extruded parts (threaded rod, etc.), so even if we can find somebody to print us the plastic bits, it'll still be a bit of a pain to get everything together.

How many "pixels" do we have to work with? I seem to recall 3 high, maybe 12-16 long with a window interrupting four-ish blocks in the center. Letters are pretty tricky with just three vertical pixels. More abstract light patterns would be really cool though. --[[User:Berticus|Berticus]] 20:47, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

Description: When we visit other hackerspaces or form partnerships with other organizations, it would be cool to give them something that came from the hackerspace. The idea being that it's hand made, geeky, and shows off the Interlock logo in some way.

How about some sort of abstract object trophy, that's actually just a piece of a larger objects. The different hackerspaces that received them would have to get together to put the final "trophy" together. Or perhaps they'd all combine into Voltron or Captain Planet. Some such. Or, instead of getting physically together perhaps all the spaces would 3d scan their objects and combine them that way. There'd have to be something extra to thwart that... electronic contacts in each piece that "networked" the larger object perhaps. Ramble complete. --[[User:Berticus|Berticus]] 20:52, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Reprap/Makerbot Build

Description: Berticus really wants to tinker with 3d printing, and thus desires access to either a Makerbot or the next generation Reprap Mendel.

Details: Makerbots can be purchased for $750 or $950. The higher price reflects some premium features, mainly pre-assembled electronics, a power supply, and some extra plastic filament. Bots are currently rather backordered. Mendel parts are impossible to find. There seem to be no kits out there for the non-extruded parts (threaded rod, etc.), so even if we can find somebody to print us the plastic bits, it'll still be a bit of a pain to get everything together. Right now a Makerbot is probably the way to go, and we can use that to print out the Mendel parts to make a second bot for experimentation (developing new print heads and such).

Berticus has gotten a 3D printer and is working on building another one. Skip has one, and is trying to get it to work. Bill, Alex, and Deejoe are in various stages of accumulating parts for theirs.
