A good time was had by all, we looked at a unique Snowboarding location, altitude, axis and temperature tracker that had recently been tested in the field, although the hardware and software worked well the low temperatures were a challenge, the group discussed a range of options from heat pumps, wicks, peltier devices to phase-change materials as used in the magic metal coffee beans!
The group decided to try out building some drawduino to see if they would be a suitable item for us to help newcomers to build and take home and a date is being set for that.
You can view pictures from the event on the Southackton Flickr Page.
Our embryonic wiki is online at the hackerspaces.org website.
