I have finished an #emf project!!! Please fill me with enough popcorn so the slanket reads correctly.

I knitted it so I wouldn’t be cold when sitting in the dark watching Hackers this year (this was the one I thought of at emf22 and have taken two years to finish).

Orga. Orga is my #emf project. I keep forgetting this.

I am in awe of all the people bringing completed projects to - I am trying to finish one project I brought half finished to emf22, and another I started just after getting back from emf22, thinking I had two years to get it done. And I got distracted by a new one, which is also…. Unfinished.

Have you got a laser cutter that does 1000mmx1000mm minimum bed size?

Are you going to #emf #emfcamp or live near someone who does?

The arcade is doing a really cool thing where they’re showcasing indie games, but we need to build MOAR cabinets so we can get as many in as possible. If you can help, email installations @ emfcamp.org

Turns out when you only have 20m of “yarn” the only items of clothing you can knit are smalls. Behold the TechnoValkyrie (which I shall be wearing over a nice thick black vest, with a warm jacket over). Each side is separately controllable but it’s basic pwm. It’s sort of like light up chainmail, to wear, and of course fits the rules of female body armour.

A copper LED string knitted into a basic triangular bikini lies on a fake fur blanket. The sides flash on and off and sparkle to music.

I’ve been working hard on FAQs for all aspects of - and honestly there are some queries you can anticipate.

“Where can I put my jet engine” is quite common, for instance, along with “how much fuel do we need for the flamethrowers”, and numerous laser related things.

Handily someone else has taken the trebuchet and Tesla coil queries. So far.

Ok how do you edit a post in the @IceCubesApp? I’m sure it must be obvious, but somehow it’s not obvious to me!

Are you an educator in the field of computer science for ages 11-17? It counts if you volunteer for code clubs etc. Help Priscilla to evaluate some cool musical coding resources for her PhD research!

There’s also a bunch of really useful resources under the “perks” section if you want ideas for activities and tools.

Anyone want an oscilloscope? It has a printer built in but I’ve not tested it. Last seen working but I haven’t turned it on in ages and can’t justify keeping it. Can bring to #emfcamp

Where’s a fun place to get pronoun pins from these days? Please feel free to recommend personal choices or your own wares, but no search results type, I can do that myself!

Day 109 - I have been slacking as far as a daily piggin goes, but I am still drawing them. Or painting. This is a Rose Crowned Fruit Dove which is the Australian / Singaporean version of our dull grey variety. You may think I’m making up the colours. I’m not.

I am going to a robot thing. I am taking a lot of little tiny robots with me. If you see me at the robot thing then please ask about the little tiny robots and one will be yours.

Day 94 - my eyes are floating. Squillions of stitches with one or two strands from an embroidery thread, and yes I know I need to move it forwards a bit in the hoop. I need to stop seeing in miniature first. Took nearly 2 hours. 2p for scale.

Yes of course I made a vanity cyanotype selfie.

I do wonder if the thing stopping us doing independent publishing, music, arts, etc, is an admin problem.

I need a bit of help with describing six youtubers for my thesis.

(These are kids most-watched, as indicators of whether they're likely to be computing students or not).

I am not telling you which is which yet. Can you describe their content for me in one or two words please? Boost for reach.

Day 77 - another tiny canvas, another piggin peeking at you. These are cheap as chips acrylic on canvas, and they take me about an hour each using my old Ork painting brushes.

A very fine paintbrush pinched between finger and thumb

Edit: they’re off to @thentrythis for some future adventures!

Would anyone like some low end soldering irons? Enough for a class set or workshop set. Not worth the cost of posting so would need to pick up from - it’s a folding crate’s worth.

I wrote a very tiny programme on a very tiny computer. (Potentially going to be a kit from @ExtKits )

Day 60 - accidentally captured a piggin looking like it has a punk hairdo while trying to get reference photos. Still, it might be a candidate for warp speed piggin.

Day 50 - printed a reference photo, made a collage instead. In hindsight I could have done this digitally instead of cutting and colouring every blinking letter. But where’s the fun in that?

Some muppet colouring in a cut out letter S with a dark brown felt pen
