Air Quality Sensor In Tog

We have a very busy workshop in Tog. Lots of activities generate dust but up until now, we have no way to quantify it.

The design is based on the luftdaten project. The difference with this model than the previous sensor on our blog, we went for a 3D printed case. The case was created by Netobrev and is available on Thingiverse. The case is made up of four parts and approximately 5 hours to print.

The new model supports an LCD screen. It displays the current values from the sensors. For more build photos from this project check out our gallery.

All sensor data is stored on the Open Sense Map website.

Ealaín Solas (Light Art)

Come join us for a fun and illuminating workshop of light art with polarisation to celebrate the UN International Day of Light (IDL). IDL is an annual event to educate and promote the area of optics and photonics.

This workshop will kick off with a short presentation on polarisation and why it’s important and afterwards there will be a hands-on demonstration that will combine optics (light) and the use of fabrication techniques. Each participant will assemble a laser cut holder with 3D printed parts and then will design their own polarisation artwork. Each kit can be taken home.

 Workshop lead by Laura Tobin and Jeffrey Roe.

*** You must be 18 years of age or older to take part in this workshop. Please do not book places for children ***

Date: Saturday 29th June 14:00
Cost: Free but booking required with the link below.

This workshop is kindly supported by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.
The workshop content is derived from the phablabs project.

OpenStreetMap Ireland AGM and General Information Day

OSMI will hold its first AGM since forming a company to represent the community on the 15th of June. The event will be in two sections, starting off at 11am with a short introduction and a demonstration/tutorial for anyone new to open source mapping. After that, there will be a selection of five-minute lightning talks and general discussion up to the 1 pm break. Anyone interested in giving a talk can tweet the organisers @osm_ie.

Then around 2 pm, the formal AGM begins with a detailed report of the work being done behind the scenes. The board that formed the company will step down and hold a vote for the new board. This is an opportunity for anyone interested in joining to help with the administrative/behind the scenes work and help shape the future of how mapping progresses in Ireland.

There will also be an opportunity to join a working group, such as having every house on the island mapped or other high level project and system administration for back-end services.
