Last week, for the first time I had the opportunity to walk around in a hacker, and it felt like forever. The hacker space in Germany was finally able to reopen as usual, allowing access to a reasonable number of people, provided that they were immunized or tested, and of course wearing masks.It means i have to accept [Andreas’] Invited to see him Stereo Ninja Inspection Microscope Project personally.
Stereo Ninja basically used two Raspberry Pi cameras cleverly, replaced the optics for greater magnification, and displayed the results on a 3D monitor-viewing with shutter glasses. This is one of the items you really have to see in person to “get it”. He is still working to streamline the build, make it simpler and more affordable, and make it easier for ordinary hackers to access the project.
We talked about DIY a 3D display. It turns out that shutter glasses are very cheap, and it seems that they are synchronized to the display via IR pulses. There should be at least a hacking solution to get 3D to work with fast gaming displays. [Andreas] Also pointed this out to me Excellent breakout board for Raspberry Pi CM4 Break the two camera channels to easily achieve stereo / 3D capture.I got a visit Manufacturing laboratory, We talked about welding, metal 3D printing, software, hardware, and all kinds of nerd stuff. [Alex] He showed up on his way out of town on the weekend-we haven’t been out for a long time.
In short, I remember how I used to access other hackers and other hacker spaces. This kind of spontaneous and mutually encouraging chat is impossible remotely, and it is very important.
I am worried that we have not ended the COVID pandemic, and the development trajectories of different parts of the world are completely different. If you told me two years ago that I would visit the hackerspace with a mask and vaccination certificate, I would think you were crazy. But at the same time, this short visit gave me hope for the future. We will overcome all of these and we will meet again in our local hacker space.
