The Gentle(wo)man Hacker’s RC Airplane

If you’re like me, the RC aviation hobby is as fascinating as it is costly.  In the two videos below that we produced for element14 though, we cover how to convert a $10 foam glider into a great training flier and then get even more bleeding edge with a cheap-but-good-for-the-price setup for flying UAV style with a pistol grip camcorder mounted to the plane that transmits to a screen on the ground.  Dan Meyer with the help of Ken Zinnen walk you through some of the many exciting  facets of radio controlled airplanes.

Interview with Irish Radio

Last night, I had the honor of an interview with Irish Radio show IT Freely.  I discussed hackerspaces in general, Pumping Station: One, and the nanotech and Scanning Tunneling Electron Microscope projects I’m working on (look on my personal website), and the current state of garage tinkering and science.
