"Take on the Machine" Hackerspace Video Series

Mitch Altman, one of the founders of the Noisebridge hackerspace in San Francisco, has been working with people on the “Take on the Machine” challenge. This is a contest between five different hackerspaces to come up with the best repurposing (and rebuilding) of some common object for a new use. Each of the spaces involved as given three weeks and a $3,000 budget to do this and the whole thing was filmed and is being run as a weekly webisode series.

The first episode just went up. You can watch it here or I’ve embedded it below for those reading this locally on my blog.
