Lightning Talks (2)
6:52PM Aug 2, 2020
Hello from Kansas City.
Hope has been like a bright light in a pandemic summer. Comment circulating every two years, which always leaves a trail in my mind.
During quarantine. I've been working from home. Yes. And for some reason I started sketching this year.
I've also been missing my makerspace hammerspace community workshop.
And of course, looking forward to hope, I hope to see you in two years.
It's lightning talks, we are back for round two on the ninth day of Hope you survived you're here, you're strong you're energetic and it's only a few more hours until you can reach go in your family, start paying attention to other things in the world. And who knows, maybe even take a nap or enjoy a beverage. We have a number of people in the room we're not going to pause. We're going to get right to it. We have, I think enough to fill up the hour. First up is Chad. Chad Go ahead, unmute screenshare, whatever you want and you have five minutes.
Greg it says hosts disabled participants screenshare.
Hold on bad host macros you know what happened was the. We changed the Zoom Room from the one we've been using for presenters give it another try.
Oh, cool. All right, I think,
sorry about that. No worries agribusiness
your life. Go ahead.
You're live chat,
but we don't hear you. and
make sure you're unmuted on the audio.
So I thought the audio would go through on the PowerPoint.
Oh, yeah that's that's advanced lightning talk,
we're not we're not going to get I'm afraid. Now,
if you want if you want to take a moment didn't mess
with that and come back a little later that would be okay. But, sending audio into
zoom is possible
surely go on with lightning talk to and you can take a look at that. There's, there are some settings under the little microphone dude in the lower left of your zoom,
and I mentioned this last night
hackers got gallon. This is why we pre recorded many of our talks, because messing around with zoom is really boring to watch. Look, let's go on. On to the next speaker 86112 is what I have in my list and we'll come back to your chat.
It's a constituent to worry with us.
With us okay Claire and you're next on my list Are you ready to clear.
Yes, I am Greg. Let's do it. Sweet.
All right, well,
greetings and salutations hope 2020. I hope your day is going well my day is going peachy. So today I'm going to talk about bridging the gap with social activities in a pandemic. So typically, in my day job, I talk about network and email threats, but today I'm going to talk about a slightly different topic which is an issue that threatens the layer eight
on OSI model.
I'm not going to talk about the other about stuff, you probably can read faster than I can say it so take a quick skim through.
All right, so.
So just, just to pre face a lot of these are suggestions and ideas that I came up with, based on what I've seen and done at work and also in my personal life. So just a couple ways to bring people together online may include video conferencing social so that might include, you know, using zoom, or other video chats, to connect with others. The fun rating for that is three or four stars. Another thing you can do is tap on shoulder chats, which is essentially for example, telling a friend or co worker that you want to talk to them and you give them Niven a minute to prepare and get ready, which is, it can be fun I mean you you might catch them off guard but that yeah there is there's always that there's also Mandatory Fun in air quotes. That's, that's never fun. So, in terms of these points I want to make it clear that it's very useful to make it. Optional and not mandatory if you make it mandatory for people to join, they, it might not be as fun. There's also a virtual matei tea party that you can throw those seem to be pretty fun. Full disclosure I've never actually heard of Mati tea before the whole conference, so I attended one of the meta matei workshops and that like I learned so much from from that one workshop I really want to try Mati I've never had it up here in Canada yet so yeah, there's also immediate watch party so things like you know watching Netflix together. There's also party games fundraising Let's find out. So next, you might have something called scribble.io or script scribble yo as some people might call it. So essentially this is an online Pictionary game. The person who is selected to draw has a prompt and they're supposed to draw whatever the prompt is and have other people guess there's there's points and whoever has the most points at the end is the winner. Just one pro tip. Don't try to draw the thing right away, try to integrate it into seeing, you know, build it up like for example Katy Perry and a photograph. There's also online board games, for example, net games on IO and board game arena. So net games i o is essentially a board game. Variants that's optimized for mobile play granted you can also play on your browser on your desktop or your tablet or what have you. But it's optimized for mobile play, you can play games like one night ultimate werewolf code words spyfall and more board game arena. You can play many board game versions on the interwebs as well such as cool seventh wonder chess Connect for and so much more. board game arena is more of a freemium experience where most games might be free, but some premium games like coop for example might require a subscription 30 seconds please
All right, and that's pretty much it. I got a couple of bonus mentions such as jackbox, it's like a collection of games you got a quick flash of the bottom, 100% orange juice which is like a Mario Party variant without mini games and bit more. And, yeah, that's that's it for my talk, thank you very much and have yourself a wonderful day night of hope.
Outstanding. Thanks so much, I was clear and with bridging the isolation gap with social activities in a pandemic. Um, who do I say what's next I think I said Lily was next.
You ready, willing.
I'm ready, start sharing my screen, do it. Hey. Okay.
So I got
Okay. All right. So, I am presenting on social engineering as an argument for positive psychology. My TLDR is that interactions via communication medium is always relational. So, it might sound strange that you can social engineer computer without it being like a chat bot or something. But, it goes directly to the point of associations and belonging. I look at the definitions of words, I have made other mentions on this page which you can read for yourself at a later time if you have not read it now. So, I think about how we can define belonging as being at relationship expectation between one or more living beings. So, it doesn't have to be necessarily humans can be like between cats how they fight or have some like kind of dominance relationships. You could have computer controls which are upon, physical and social concepts of security, because we really like to enforce what we have existing already in our life. Marie Kondo talks about building relationships with our things calling them belongings, in my opinion. And then lastly, I want to make sure that we acknowledge our relationship to ourselves because we aren't always awesome to ourselves. And you can have positive use cases for social engineering such as secure attachment between a parent guardian and their child. Someone to bring out their best performance. Balancing power and vulnerability and equities in a relationship. For instance, if you married into wealth, you're paying all the bills, without getting any help from the wealthy party, then it's kind of unfair. Connecting across cultural differences to build trust loyalty and respect which is critical for our time. And here are the embedded works that are not mine that I can point to. And so here's where I'm starting to like break things down into phases of how you would progress from phase one to two three to four. And what you would call things at those stages. I want to make a quick definition of engaged, which means to occupy attract or involve, which engages for me, which brings to mind. Things like occupying attention, attracting interest, getting involved with a action or relationship. And then, I think that it could be the right word to use and social media metrics use that as a form of engagement. So step one, which was mentioned in Shawn Lawson and Rob gills talk here I hope 2020 is trashing but I would prefer to call it a pointing to trying to get some type of information about what is happening in the subject of the target to identify how they operate such as that's being requested like a child asking for food, because they're hungry, or you're looking at some type of protocol that is used by like the telephone system for instance. And then you want to try to either disengage attention so that you won't be observed, or you want to attract their attention.
And it sounds like you want to
do it attention to someone instead is what I'm trying to say, so that it's. They're
there they'll feel hurt basically.
So, and then the next stage is pretexting which would defeat confidential confidentiality, potentially, if their confidentiality isn't good enough. So you want to appear authentic, or be authentic. If you're trying to build a relationship you'd want to appear. And And be not just appear 30 seconds fully Yeah, I've got two pages left after this. So then, you're just trying to make sure that you can identify expectations and how they can be formed with, and you want to engage interest in something, or, or try to not get them to notice you.
Similarly, in terms of integrity.
I'm just going to show the last two sites but I like to apply it to all types of things like sports for instance you can condition a behavior to exploit in boxing, for example, That's all I have for now. Thank you.
Outstanding. Thank you, that was a little tiger with social engineering and argument for positive psychology Coolpad, you're up next, and Chad I think we can have you on duck.
Great. Can you guys hear me.
We hear you and we see your slides look that great
so this talk is about using Arduinos for as an adapter for old retro controllers. I just think it's a good introductory well for me it was for getting into Arduinos. It's pretty cool project if you don't know about it. I'm not the person who originally, you know came up with this I'm just talking about how I did it myself. Alright so the, you know, here on the right we see a NAS USB adapter. And on the left which is the impetus for this this is a thing. Like, I really wanted to get started with this is a actually a modded Atari 2600 paddle, where I modded the inside and inside of that is a, an Atari is an Arduino. And instead of using the normal DB nine connector if you're if you've seen these before they. There's usually two to one DB nine connector. And now there's just one with a USB. These are recognized as h ID devices so you can plug it into, you know, like a Raspberry Pi or, you know, any, any operating system really and use it with an emulator. What else is there to say the NAS adapter on the right, you could get an adapter that is commercially, they make them commercially. But there's still advantages to making it on your own. Besides, it just being fun. They actually these have lower latency than the ones you would typically buy, and then on the left, I mean, there isn't really even a commercially available 2600, you know Tari paddle. Alright, so let me go on and just give you resources I want to just jump to the most important stuff so the person actually did this work is a guy MacGyver and these are called demon bites. So if you go to his GitHub he has a whole bunch of a whole bunch of these for different adapters. But for the paddle itself you should check out Mr spinner. And I shouldn't move on to say, I actually got into this through the MR FPGA, which is a really cool project I'll talk about a little bit here. So, I could probably just talk about Mr FPGA for five minutes but it's basically it's an open project for you basically using FPGA, the same FPGA board. for I don't think you'd really call it emulation it's more like hardware simulation. If you don't know about it and get nothing else from this talk just, and you're into retro gaming, you should check out Mr FPGA. But the promise of of these implementations you know for on mister FPGA is that not only can they be very accurate, but they can have very low latency like with software emulation there can be a friction between the two but in the case of FPGAs, there isn't really. And I'm going to say that accuracy is probably why you're interested in that self evident but low latency even if you don't think you're sensitive to low latency, you might be if you find yourself playing an emulator and you're thinking gee I used to be better at this game when I was a kid, it might actually just be that you're suffering from a lot of lack. So moving on when I got into FPGA just a few months ago I started getting into collecting controllers because you get into this mindset of I want to really kind of have the experience similar to the original experience when I was a kid, or when you know or even if I haven't played it before just have something close so here's just 30 seconds or 30 seconds. All right, well I will continue on. Alright, so let me just talk about show and tell here so here is me prototyping the panel here's me putting a Arduino in the panel and finally you can have a paddle and then next here is making the adapter you basically take an extension cord and cut it and probe it and then solder it to, to the Arduino and you can either have it on the left like kind of ugly looking or you can make a little bit better and. Alright, I guess I rushed through here and thank you very much.
Thanks very much.
That was commanded with Arduino USB game controller adapter. Thank you for all of that, um, do we want to try to go back to shad you
wanna try again. God.
Hey hackers on and off Planet Earth, it is time for some whoo whoo. If you want some movie or songs. It is 15 milliliters peach snaps 30 milliliters aka the 60 milliliters cranberry juice. I have not had one but I sounds delicious. I'm exponent in the matrix and the blue for today's discussion is overly Artefill variety is the founder of Coast to Coast AM, for those of you who don't know it is a late night talk show on radio here in the states that concerns itself with everything that's woowoo conspiracy theories UFOs ghosts numerology tarot cards, all that fun stuff. And what I'm going to be talking about is that we may very well be in the matrix, where's ion zombie and the earth itself is destroyed every 5000 years or so. I came across this two weeks ago you can actually see in the last visit date was just a while ago. Two weeks ago. Now, this is declassified EBV documents is the first thing that pops up EBV is extra, extra terrestrial biological entity. It is what we think the government calls the alien aliens actually here live here on earth for the most part, and just like to visit and fly around in our skies like tic tocs
declassified from the CIA and sanitized copy approved for release so this
this document concerns itself with cataclysms and Cataclysm that happens again and again and again at least five times that we know of that we can fairly accurately measure from strata data from Grand Canyon from diamondhead, from various places around the Earth. They all seem to match this exact same stratification of layers of the earth where cataclysms have been cataloged. And we can see them in all over the earth. This in the bottom right is kind of the timeline, it will last five, but it's possibly it happened, hundreds of times. The theory is that this is Earth's crust displacement theory which is what the movie 2012 for those of you who saw that concerns itself with where the mantle the crust is separated from the inner core of the Earth, and everything just goes chaotic. There's tsunamis there supersonic wins. 1% of life is left at the end. The one thing that really sticks out to me is the talks in the past about how people saw the sunrise twice, or the sunset twice or, or the day lasted for 24 hours.
always sticks out in my head because I read those years and years ago, and they're, they're mentioned in this document. He says that the process of the cataclysm is known. We still don't know the timing, what causes
it, and it's been happening in years.
With the sanitized documents. It seems as a process of removing sensitive information. Usually it's just a magic marker and blacked out documents where the entire thing's blacked out this document can be found on archive.org both versions sanitized and the normal version is on here search for Chan Thomas He's the author of this piece. It does rewrite a Adam and Eve story of what he thinks the
process of capitalism is. You'll think
so but what's been changed.
So a lot of stuff has been removed or changed. Usually, it's just annoyingly small stuff. The strata data is often omitted from like Monument Valley strata diamondhead strata. Just some cities are removed as far as what, there's not a trace left Oh Chicago Dallas or Boston. Sudden revolutions in the wrong directions by the surface of the Earth is removed. The interesting part for me was, India had gravity propelled vehicles and gravity made weaponry. That's why, boys and girls, we're not going to get any other fun stuff.
So, I gotta go. Enjoy.
You are here because we destroyed everything inhabitants illuminated its entire existence eradicated. Emotional denial is the most predictable of all human responses. Rest assured.
Hey, Ryan. Thanks so much for that that was a that was interesting. I appreciate that that was the whoo time by Chad Chamberlain lightning talk outstanding. Thank you. You can stop screen sharing your screen and we'll go on to the next one in my list is it 61612 who is going to try to rename himself free so bear with
us, we're ready to go.
Doo doo doo doo doo.
All right, Jason.
Yeah, your five minutes have begun.
Please take it away. Okay, well, let me just do this very quick. Come on, stopped my video.
To me, I didn't say.
Somebody stop my video, we will find two.
Okay so coming on now, you bringing me on line.
Yeah, you're online and if you want to show us something on your screen you need to share your screen.
Okay, so zoom menu. Okay. Can I start your video because the host stop that. How dare you. I protest. I did no such thing. Okay, somebody anyhow because I when I click on the video thing. It says you cannot start your videos to ko stuff, so we don't really need cc me anyhow let's see if we can see my screen. Okay Oh you're talking about
your your video signal, um,
I, I'm your call. I'm
sorry about that. I'm guilty I apologize, just because you were I thought you meant you're trying to share your video on the screen oh no no, be able to do it now. Yeah, I did it before because you were.
You weren't talking so I needed to. Okay so alright that's a minute and a half
con but we're doing great and part of that was my fault, so there might be some bonus seconds,
I should hope so I should hope
so. Okay, tell us what your talk is what you're getting.
Yeah, getting around all my talk is about a idea. It's not just my idea, and that share screen.
Now I haven't seen you tried to share screen yet
okay let me try one more time share screen. And
you have to actually click that you can't this isn't source track you can't talk to your computer, you have to click.
Why not. Okay so Seshu screen one screen to screen three so that's probably a try this screen. God, I hate so I so hate so we all do. Okay. So it tells me I have three screens. Let's see screen one. Do you guys see anything on screen. Oh, I have to click the Share button guy they want somebody go. Okay.
This is so far this is better than your hackers got talent competition in the last
Yeah, give me time to do this, try to do this in two minutes please. Okay.
Can Can you see my screen Yeah,
no, you have six weeks, not only do we see your screen we see you. So we are at a level of success which has never before been achieved.
Wow. And on my screen does it say planet no money. Ah, yeah, yeah. Okay, so let's get over to Planet no money. And we should be on default now yeah okay so this is a very broken website it's a work in progress, I'd hoped to have it finished. By the time of this stock, but basically the whole idea, and it's not my idea. Billions of people maybe had the same idea. But the key difference is at the way that I've defined the idea because everybody likes the idea of a great world you know in a perfect world, where, how do I put it, no poverty you know john lennon song, you know imagine. So, the basic premise of planet no money is the goal is to remove money and bartering from our from the planet. So, money. The power of ownership no longer matter. Okay. All very complicated. I don't know how to do this. Basically, all it is. There's an email address, ie Oh at planet no money. org. And so how planet money works. Ah, we you provide relevant ideas, all, for a better place. Planet no money takes your ideas. Oh compensating you then somehow those ideas get implemented, and we end up with, you know, the world being a better place sentient creatures that includes all Homo sapiens sapiens, so you know animals, people. And of course, our beloved planet era, which we're destroying, so that's it in a nutshell, I will be hammering the ages up here, as fast as I can. The URL is planet no money.org, and thank you for allowing me to, to put this idea forward. Excellent. Hey thanks for those questions. I know we don't do questions in lightning talk
so. So that said, Thank you so much. I'm really happy that you that you fought soon, and you've overcome it, and it only took you a couple of sessions which is not.
Well, I'm pointing to skirmishes I have not won the battle yet,
right, go ahead and see if you can unshare your screen, that would be that would be the next little mirror
oh okay that's your right. So there's somewhere there's. Well, I'll tell you what. To switch away from me while I'm doing,
we may do that and I might mute you again. So. Oh.
Okay, so we have a movie from Jolie.
Let me just check. Are we going to. Are we going to just roll that over the live stream.
Are we going to put it into zoom somehow.
Okay, we're going to roll a roll of video over the live stream people in zoom you can watch it on the live stream, go ahead.
This is one of your backroom boys Charlie, coming up with my lightning talk about the Internet Society in lieu of a keynote which we never got around to doing. So yes, the Internet Society and slides. Yeah, we've been streaming hope since 2014. And we love hope. Internet Society was founded in 1982 which I thought was the same year the E FF were founded, but apparently the Beatles I heard just now, Cindy by two years. So, we'll be looking forward to celebrating our 30th hope in 2022. Our motto for a long time at the Internet Society is the internet is for everyone. This has now been modified to saying we want to build, promote and defend
Last time when
I was at hope I was the president of the New York chapter,
which I am no longer. One of the things that I was able to do it. I saw Ken why was, was make a deal to like finance, the supernode of NYC mesh which basically got it going, I will say about NYC mesh it's now one of the most successful community networks in the world. And this all really got going was when they tabled with us at at hope in 2016 and that's when some of the core foundation people of the NYC mesh were recruited. It's going great and, you know, check them out and join. So I left, just to focus on the live streaming which I now my home for this is isop Live, which is and we've got three live stream channels. We also stream on, as you'll see on Periscope, and Twitch. And we do events from all over the world. Another thing I did was, I reinvigorated the internet society's accessibility group, which is now called alley sick. According to the way of new moronic way that things go.
About a year ago or even a little over a year ago I saw got a new CEO which is andrew sullivan and Andrew is a very sort of unique kind of character he's Canadian, but he's an engineer, and he's also, I think, got a philosophy degree so he's a thinker too, his claims to fame include that it was he was sent as chair of the internet arch architecture board to Congress to deal with Ted Cruz when Ted Cruz was opposing the ionic transition. And, which he did successfully, and also that he was in charge at time when they had the Mirai botnet attack so he knows he knows about DDoS, for sure. As an engineer he's, he's basically come in and reorganize the Internet Society and cut off a lot of dead, you know flash and, and, and martial arts into like projects. And so now we have an act of clever, you know, Action Plan, which has these as its main, main projects, building community networks which is a major push around the world, you know, basically everybody who's going to be reached by the major ISP, and so on has been reached, and now it's up to the people at the edges to reach back in. Obviously fostering the technical communities, measuring the internet we've just started a new joint effort with the African Union to, to, to measure the internet in Africa, which is obviously one of the great areas of growth right now. The Internet way of networking which is now has the acronym iwon is, you know, is the way of like autonomous equal way of networking which you might take for granted but by no means is the only way I'm securing global routing you just saw, saw a presentation on that. Extending encryption now this is like a major, major policy work they're introduced back to all laws and in Australia and other places. Time security which was addressed by by both Dan York and are laughing their presentations at hope and open standards which is also what Dan co did a presentation on before. So, the internet site he basically has three subsidiary organizations one is the IETF. And so the ITF was just part of the Internet Society, but the Internet Society was originally formed as a sort of parent, the IETF. And in the last couple of years they've made it so that the IETF is now a sort of standalone subsidiary with its own accounts and everything. And at the same time, the,
the, the money that comes into the
Internet Society, and was allotted in grants and this kind of thing has now been separated out into the ISOC foundation. So, that out of there and so, and as you know where most of the money comes from is the public interest registry which owns the.org. And I suspect you might have heard that later on last year there was an offer to buy an arrangement made by.org Bice ethos capital. And they offered $1.135 billion. And this was a little controversial so just to talk about that for a bit. So, last year the ICANN decided to take off the price caps on.org and this is for their own reasons that were nothing to do with us. And it didn't make a lot of difference with for PR because PR doesn't even meet its actual price cap, because it's what it's called, it's like nine bucks or something a domain right now. But this came, you know, when we the Internet Society people were saying well you can't say anything about this because you know you you own a registry and so we're in a situation where we can't even really talk about domain issues because we are, we should be in, in, in the registrar the registry constituency whereas in fact most of us are in the at large. And then what came, what it came down to and this is something that john lady has talked about is fiduciary duty. So, it's the duty of our trustees who are selected from the IETF from the organizational members from the chapters and members to do their best for the Internet Society and. And one of the problems with the Internet Society is basically all our eggs are in one basket financially which is the DIR. So, we do the need to type to type versified, our source of funding so that rather than having it invested in one, organize, you know one business and one organization in that business and.
I'm going to go forward a slide and so, just a minute. For the slide so there was opposition. And some people will form the thing from save.org. Some people started to organize a co op to try and suggested that I can give the thing to them. They weren't helped by us the Dyson who went on PVR and suggested that.org register registrants were being sold into slavery, which was some pushback. And then, and then they actually went to, and Mallory noto referred to this earlier, went to the California ag to try and like get them to stop the things since I can it's in California. And as I talked earlier about you know Ted Cruz and everything. The whole effort has been to take the internet, out of the hands of the American government and the American legal system and negative, a global thing so this was a step in the wrong direction, which could well backfire. And so, ethos capital responded by making public interest commitments and, therefore, a Stewardship Council, they would that would have been able to veto anything that would have controller would make sure that there was no censorship and all this stuff and and you know even if they'd formed a co op. The best thing you could have hoped for was a cop but eventually they'd make a committee that would make sure that the thing ran properly which was essentially what ethos was doing, and your position seemed to be mainly just, you know, against capital in general, which I understand some people are opposed to that. And he's also responded that you know they were just. They wanted to grow the asset. And then, you know, and that's and that's it, and they saw that it was under exploited basically in terms of total could be sold a lot more doesn't. You know, it's only, it's basically an American thing it's not a global thing. And, and, you know, they didn't do such a good job. ethos.
I had a joke there which I forgotten. But anyway, it came down to ICANN making the vote, and I can vote it two kills, I think. And it wasn't unanimous but but as a result of this the whole deal is now dead and it's not going to happen. But I have here the statement of average Doria who's one of the directors on ice on saying, I can saying why she opposed the deal. And she says, on power balance after intense study the proposal I've come to the conclusion to the public interest of registrants and users is better served by the text, the public interest commitments by PR, that there could be stronger than by forcing PR to name with a nicer, without any guarantees on public interest related to data users and creative expression. In other words, the deal was better. for.org registrants they got more from this, and they got it they would have got a PR that was dedicated to their interests rather than just serving as a cash cow. For the Internet Society. And at the same time the internet's as, you know, the Internet Society. The opposition you know their interests within the small one group, you know, public intro, you know.org registrants whereas the Internet Society is has the interest of the internet at large, all users, all registrants everything. And, by no means are we, you know, is DNS as we've seen in the arguments from Philip, the only way of doing dressing on the internet so it's it's not a good situation really that, too, in terms of the long term future of the internet but where it's where we are now. So, that's it. Going back to the streams if you see anything that's screwed up you can always email me directly at this. And I'd like to give a shout out to my colleagues Forrest and Corey, and especially to Greg for doing all our production work.
That was Joey.
Joey has Internet Society in his heart and his soul he wanted to share that with you, Joey is the wizard behind our streaming setup fantastic amazing job we got during this conference we'll hear more about that, during how we did it later on tonight. Right now our last lightning talk is Scott, talking all about Mandel bot project Take it away, Scott.
Hi. Hey. Thank you very much for having me, and letting me join. This is about the Mandel bot project. So let's jump right into it. mendele bot was started, and 2012 is a kind of collectively run project, like all volunteer. Open Source hardware project were kind of spread out all over the place. And it started off as a project, which is a design philosophy. The whole idea was to basically create parametrically designed and programmatically creatable machines, so kind of like a universal machines. Virginia Ozymandias approached me a while ago and and suggested this idea that kind of creating an application that could spit out any 3d printer, you know of any size so it's scalable. And so that's kind of where we started and started to keep everything open source wanted everything to be easy to assemble have a low part count, low power consumption be ecologically minded portable and easy to transport have easily swappable printheads so the idea is to have 3d printers that are additive, but also subtractive ones that can print with molten plastic materials like Pele which is a bio plastic or print with food, which I'll show you in a second, were inspired by the RepRap project, which is, I guess, on they, it was a project that was created at the University of Bath in England, as kind of an engineering project two. I guess to figure out if people could make a 3d printer using off the shelf parts and. And so basically they made a, an XYZ gantry with a hot glue gun on it, and that will end up inspiring all of the 3d printers that are you've seen since then, in 3d printing has been around for quite a while, actually the first time I'd seen a 3d printer was in 2004 at hope, or maybe it was 2006, but a wind up happening is that a lot of the patents that were involved with 3d with 3d printing came the expired. And that's that kind of led to the whole revolution of makers using them and RepRap played a very big role in this. So, one of the big features of the printer is a low power consumption and portability.
we, our whole goal was to make a bicycle powered 3d food printer that could print, food, almond paste. During during the performance that I do called the Groucho fractal show. And we want to succeeding by combining batteries and supercapacitors together, you can see in the middle is the latest version that was created. And then on the right is my design partner on this version Lucian shape or on the one on the two glasses. And that is the goostree router which is an extruder that extrudes, glue, and there's a little pile of glue there on the, on the printed plate. Okay, so the next phase that we're working on is 3d printed architecture and construction. So I've been spending a bit of time with a project called wasp, which is a kind of industrial 3d printer company based in Italy, and on the right, you actually see one of their 3d printed buildings this building is actually called Gaia, right on the left is a prototype for a project called tekla. Share they're currently trying to build without guests they're trying to build 3d printed buildings with no support structures inside. And they're using natural material and so like they're using a combination of clay sand and rice hulls. You can also use straw, you can use hemp and hempcrete. So our intention is to start experimenting. In this way, and so this is the thing that we've been working on. Jake Clark and myself have been working on this for the past couple of years. It's called the Mandel bot have this robot have one. And it's basically a Cartesian gantry with a printhead on it that will print. Using cementitious materials. So the way that the project is going to advance in the future, is that we're going to put the plans out for this printer and start building a community around architecture and eco texture collaboration and horizontal governance. Also, we're going to work on getting together a materials science, collaborative workshop. In order to come up with materials that are open source and printable in the metal bot hab. We're also going to try to do it with low power consumption is possible to have autonomous energy systems so let's say that we're going to have the printer out in the bush and, you know, there isn't an ample power supply close by where you just kind of want to be free from the electrical grid. And finally this, we have this idea about having horizontal ownership and a schema for cooperative ownership. Using distributed Ledger's and blockchains and that type of thing. So we're working on all this and you'll be able to find all the information at Mandel bot.io, that's not mental broth but Mandel bot.io, and if you have any questions you can reach out to me. My name is Scott fiban, and I wanted to thank hope very much for hosting me. Hope has been the reason why I've gotten into so many of the different things that I've gotten into whether it's 3d printing and brain computer interface and all other types of weird hardware projects and cultural stuff. It's been a pleasure organizing the phone festivals for hope and I just wanted to thank you guys again for doing a fantastic job. And yeah, thanks so much, Greg. And thank you, folks. If you have any questions you can add you cannot put me in the riot chat.
Fantastic hey thanks Scott and that was right on time I appreciate you getting in under the wire there. So that is the end of lightning talks round two. We have had two rounds lightning talks I would say that this one was was smoother. Once again, learning a whole lot about zoom interactively in our meetings here, and we really really hope I say this on the record we really hope that we won't be using zoom. Next time where maybe zoom will improve their, you know, situation a little bit. But, but it's been it's been the right choice of technology. To find out more about our choice of technology, how the rest of the conference went, some closing remarks, all kinds of cool stuff some of the inside information. Tune in for the closing ceremonies tonight that is the, how we did it session, and you can find it here on Livestream that's going to be at 8pm Eastern Daylight Time and most interesting we're also going to invite everybody, everybody into a big blue button room, we're going to see how that works out. So, we're done with lightning Cox, check back on the live stream momentarily we're going to hear about z Bay fighting Fang and the quest for peer to peer messaging app that just works with Holmes Wilson at the top of the next
hour, signing out from lightning talks.
