Datum: Samstag 27.Mai 16-19 Uhr

10 Teilnehmer Anmeldung im Doodle

Ziel: Befähigung erlangen, einen ESP8266 (wifi mini computer … IOT ‘n stuff) zu programmieren, selbst gelöteten ESP mit RGB-LED + USB-Seriell für weiteres hacken mitnehmen.

P: “IOT? Niemals gehört!”
A: “Unter welchem Stein lebst du denn?!”

Man kann damit schöne bunte Würfel bauen 1

oder aber sein Haus “intelligent machen” 2


  • Vorstellungsrunde: Wer bist du? Warum elektro-Internet-Kleingeräte? (aka IOT)
  • Schnelle Einführung in Elektronik Prototyping
    • Spannung, Widerstand und Ampere?!
    • IO pins, Wo muss man aufpassen, lessons learned
    • USB-Serial
  • 30 min SMD löten: Hands-on Workshop (Einsteiger-level)
    • a USB-Serial Kabel “hacken” damit es richtige 5V liefert
    • Löte den ESP8266 an das PCB Adapter-Board
    • Spannungsregler, ws2812b (RGB led mit Microcontroller), Stecker, Gewürze
  • Einführung Arduino IDE + hands-on
    • “blinke-led” für IOT (Web-Server im WLAN)
  • Schnelle Einführung: NodeMCU (LUA) + hands -on
    • wlan setup
    • find your box (e.g. mybox.connector.one)
    • control rgb led from your smartphone
  • happy hacking, social, Pizza?

Die Agenda wird ggfs. kurzfristig angepasst.

Unkostenbeitrag 10€ p.P. für das super Esp8266-Dev-Set, das Ihr zum weiter hacken mit nach Hause nehmen müsst.

Hackaday, die große Maker-Gemeinschaft, veranstaltet am 22. April den World Create Day, an dem Hackerspaces rund um die Welt gemeinsam hacken — und shackspace wird dabei sein!

Ab 11 Uhr morgens ist der shack offen für alle, die ihre Projekte mitbringen und gemeinsam mit uns basteln wollen, und es wird gehackt, bis der Arzt kommt!

Der einzige Programmpunkt ist eine Show-And-Tell-Session um 19:00 Uhr im Seminarraum, bei der alle die Möglichkeit haben, ihre Projekte kurz vorzustellen und damit Stoff für weiterführende Unterhaltungen zu liefern.

Für diese wird es im Anschluss genug Gelegenheit geben, denn es kann bis in die Nacht weiter gebastelt werden oder man verquatscht sich bei leiser Hintergrundmusik und loungiger Atmosphäre über Projekte.

Wir hoffen auf zahlreiches Erscheinen und interessante Basteleien!

Zum Event:
Eintritt frei! (Spenden an shack e.V. sind gerne gesehen) Jeder ist willkommen!
Datum: Samstag, 22. April 2017 ab 11:00 Uhr
Anfahrt: U4/U9 Haltestelle “Im Degen”, Ulmer Straße 255, Stuttgart Wangen (gegenüber Kulturhaus Arena)

For the fourth time, the NASA Space Apps hackathon weekend returns to Stuttgart! Sign up now to participate in the biggest hackathon event on this planet (29. & 30. April 2017). Stuttgart is one of the biggest and most important aerospace regions in Germany and we are very proud to grow and support the local space industry and startup scene with this open-source space event for everyone!

Space Apps is an international hackathon that occurs over 48 hours in cities around the world. Because of citizens like you, we continue to grow each year. If you haven’t already, join us to share ideas and engage with open data to address real-world problems, on Earth and in space. Work alone or with a team to solve challenges that could help change the world. And everybody can help, diverse backgrounds (software developers, engineers, artists, journalists, hackers, makers,…) will provide unique solutions to global problems that nobody thought about before. Check back here to join Space Apps in the Stuttgart hackerspace shackspace.

Space Apps Stuttgart 2017 Hackathon Weekend (29/30.04.2017):

  • start 29.04.2017 opening 11:00 CEST, launching event 13:00 CEST, coming later is okay
  • end 30.04.2017 18:00 CEST
  • in shackspace, Stuttgarter Hackerspace (Ulmer Str. 255, Stuttgart-Wangen)
  • next to subway station “Im Degen” (U4/9) (https://goo.gl/maps/yvdvw4tCUY22)
  • no fees, (donations are welcome).
  • everybody is kindly invited to hack for space! Register on Meetup or SpaceAppsChallenge.org

Have you ever dreamt of going to space?! At least as a child you did.

Unfortunately we didn’t quite make it to space ~100km quite yet – but at >22km we (our balloon that is) have been higher than at least 99.99% of you out there. Commercial airplanes fly at 8.5km to 10.7km to give you something graspable to compare it to.

Ever since we saw the first footage of a camera attached to a weather balloon we became fascinated by the idea to take our own images. The visible curvature of our small sphere (speak: earth) floating through space captured was ever so inspiring. You don’t even need to spend a lot of money doing so.

The project dubbed “spaceballoon” was accomplished by the team (andreashornig, exco, makefu) collaborating at our local hackerspace – the shack. On Saturday, 4.3.2017 we successfully launched it from the nearby Grillplatz Rotenberg on top of the Württemberg mountain.

The launch was exciting – even more so because we had more than 10 people waiting for us on the hill we chose for takeoff.

Here is a visualization attempt of the logged data:

Nadka made an awesome video with the onboard footage and with some material that was taken by someone at the launch site.

This is the flight path from one of the onboard android phones:

The „hunt“ for the balloon was thrilling as we lost contact with our transmitter multiple times.
Through interpolation and some luck picking up the signal again we were able to pickup the payload – even though the commercial tracker and the android phone didn’t tell us their location – or anything for that matter.

We are also really happy that the last minute efforts of team Bremen bore fruits.

As people are already telling us they also have plans (for a long time) to start a weather balloon of their own – here you can show your hands if you want to be the / a part of the next balloon project. You find a lot of needful things on our Github Repository.

A big and unorganized spaceballoon photo album can be found here.

Special thanks to Andreas (http://aerospaceresearch.net/) for taking the initiative thus causing the project to finally happen and to exco (http://excogitation.de) for sourcing the necessary parts and hacking together the whole thing into the final product.
For the lessons learned we wrote you the weather balloon guide.

Reminder: writing it down makes it science – so document your projects.
