We want to give you all something to look forward to on these dark evenings. We are hosting a project showcase live stream on Thursday the 15th of October from 7 pm. Tune into our Youtube channel to see makers showcase their projects in short 10-minute talks followed by a live Q&A. Check out the projects below.
Project Title: DIY solar home heater
Project Description: This project is the build and install of a solar thermal (hot air) collector. The hot air is passed through an air-to-water heat exchanger and the heated water is pumped through existing underfloor water pipes for home heating. The build was done at TOG and the completed project was taken home for install.

Project Title: Self Driving Car (Deep Q-Learning)
Project Description: In a udemy course called Artificial Intelligence A-Z by Super Data Science that I’m doing I was thought how to make a self driving car using a branch of a.i called reinforcement learning. This coupled with an artificial neural network model I was able to do Deep Q-Learning and train a car to drive on a virtual road. Q-Learning can be useful for when you want a.i to play video games and find the most efficient way to win the game.

Project Title: Tachyonic Antitelephone
Project Description: The Tachyonic Antitelephone is a theoretical device from physics’ history, a thought experiment realised. What if our future self could send back messages in time, telling us what our life could be, warning us of impending danger, or simply steering us away from mistakes and regrets. The Tachyonic Antitelephone opens up questions of free will, choice, fate and pre-destination. Can we change who we were, or who we may become? Do we really have the power to shift our own narratives?
This work was produced for the Hack Circus Time Travel Live event in London in 2013, and was shown in the Freedman Gallery, Allbright College, Pennsylvania as part of Mediated Realities.
