the-smoking-gun-2012.jpgProject Pitch: RFID Scan/Spoof/Copier

Mr. 9X, will be presenting his proposal for a group project involving a build for a RFID combo spoofer/scanner/copier device.

The DIY Smoking Gun build findings and foibles - David Johnson

At the January DC401 meeting we discussed Gourmet Cooking Technology. A company by the name of PolyScience has pretty much cornered the market with their Anti-Griddle's and Sous Vide water ovens which over the past 5 years have made their way into kitchens everywhere. But for the average person, most of these are far to expensive to justify. 
So with a little know-how I've started building my own "The Smoking Gun" handheld smoker which normally retails from PolyScience for $99. Current total cost of this project build is about $15.

TL;DR: Are you a Gourmet Chef/Hacker? Do you like good food?
Well I'm going to show you this build and we're going to talk about improvements that can be made. The piece of equipment made by PolyScience is far from ideal so there's plenty of room for design modifications. Frankly, it's almost as if they forgot people were going to have to use it... but no matter!

I'll show you the improvements I'll be making to the project and invite all your input.


GitLab - Conrad Constantine and Lou Grossi

We'll go over the usage of the GitLab for DC401 and credentials and so on. 


Leap Motion - Group

We'll break out the Leap Motion controller for everyone to play with an demo the latest things we've learned along with the SDK. These will be available for purchase soon at BestBuy in a few months. Also ASUS is putting them in their laptops in 2014 for ultimate functionality.

April Meeting - Defcon Video Presentation Karaoke

|


Found a whole bunch of videos from Defcon 18. I haven't had a chance to watch any yet. Let's find one we like and sit back and get some knowledge.

We can hash out some stuff for BASH also. To quote a previous post, " It looks like BASH has become our smaller, simpler, faster "Quahogcon" for this year. The fund raising it could bring would help us with QuahogCon next year so we don't have to dig into anyones pockets. If you want to see BASH (and indirectly QuahogCon) actually happen, you won't want to miss this meeting. DC401 is gonna rock 2011! Let the games begin!"

Show up around 1830. Discussion and Presentation to start around 1900. We'll all probably be hanging out until 2230 or 2300.

BYOB!

Lots of FREE PARKING!!!

Date/Time: April 6th, 2011 - 1830-2300.

[BASH] Weekend Warrior Planning Meeting

|


Sunday is BASH planning day. There are just a few little things that need ironing out and if you can be at The Brain Tank (phsycally or via Skype) I ask that you do. Things to discuss: Materials (in stock/needed), Duties (who wants to do what?), Sponsors (I'll be meeting with Basement Brewhaus tonight about supplying beer. It's either them or Narraganset Brewery)


Again. If you can make it to this meeting, please do. We can grab food after and It'll be a blast! Just a few things for BASH that need to be finalized and we shouldn't do that without good consensus.


We do BASH right, QuahogCon will be EPIC!

Date/Time: March 27th, 2011 - 3pm.

March Meeting - BASH & Flash Talks

|


Bring your research, tell us a little about it. 10-20minutes for a flash talk.

We'll also do some much needed planning for BASH. It looks like BASH has become our smaller, simpler, faster "Quahogcon" for this year. The fund raising it could bring would help us with QuahogCon next year so we don't have to dig into anyones pockets. If you want to see BASH (and indirectly QuahogCon) actually happen, you won't want to miss this meeting. DC401 is gonna rock 2011! Let the games begin!

Show up around 1830. Discussion and Presentation to start around 1900. We'll all probably be hanging out until 2230 or 2300.

BYOB!

Date/Time: March 2nd, 2011 - 1830-2300.

Polymathic Brown Professor/Engineer/Maker/Hacker Kipp Bradford will be talking about his latest engineering exploits in a presentation titled "Hacking the grid: a DIY air conditioner/heat pump does demand management. No lead jackets needed." I'm a huge physics buff and anything to do with thermodynamics and it's practical applications is a personal favorite of mine. We've been looking at better ways to heat/cool The Brain Tank, maybe we will find the answers we need?....


February's meeting is gonna ROCK!. We will be discussing QuahogCon, among other fun things. The New RFID system for The Brain Tank. We also have a HACKER PARTAAAY to talk about. Lasers?... Beer Pong?... Make it to this meeting and have your say regarding the direction of DC401 in 2011. Let the games begin!

I'll put out some glowsticks or xmas lights on a UPS. Show up around 1830. Discussion and Presentation to start around 1900. We'll all probably be hanging out until 2230 or 2300.
