Syn2cat meets Shack 1

On last Friday two hackers from Syn2cat hit the road to the Large Hacker Convention taking place in the Shackspace (the Stuttgart hackerspace) which didn’t just promise a lot but exceeded by far all expectations with a whole bunch of hacking activities in hard- and software (see pictures here).

BUT hacking doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s limited to that only, quite the opposite. Beside coding and soldering a couple of food hacks were done like nougat creme and marshmellow pieces wrapped in puff pastry. Hmm, yam … very tasty. Another one was the awesome Club-Mate wine brought by Raumzeitlabor which was an experimental but excellent drink :-)

Amongst others one highlight at the convention was the etching and soldering workshop done by ourselves. With a non-linear, chaotic and quite adaptive talk and workshop schedule we managed to make it a success overall. After hacking all day and all night Syn2cat and Shackspace finally invented by accident the wireless business card microphone and the tin can phone using a hacked tomato can.

After all these impressions this surely won’t be the last edition of The Famous Etching and Soldering Workshop. With the modded transmitter the epic epicness has started :-)
