We actually received two boxes of electronics junk, Zanzibar Initiative and Samsung. Â The first one was hand delivered to the space by Rich Watts himself. Â We had a cup of coffee and chatted. Â This was the first time the space received a box and it was very exciting. When I opened the box I saw some plastic wire cover and a digital mirror clock. Â I was kind of in awe at the new stuff. Â I decided to go through it later. Â It turned out that the wire cover had a cool story behind it. Â Rich told me about a time when he was going over to the Blue Man Group’s old warehouse to pick up some leftover supplies. Â He found a bunch of cool stuff and two spools of this cool wire cover. Â I was about to keep it but decided to pass it on. Â The picture on the top left shows the boxes contents.
A few days later, I received a box from Scott. Â It came in a cool looking Samsung box. Â I opened it and the first thing that struck me was the spinning Woot lights. Â I unpacked a bit more and was wowed by the cool stuff that was in it. Â See the picture above.
On Tuesday of this week, we are going to throw a bit of a hackerspace twist to these two boxes (resulting in possibly a few more more). Â When we have our regular meeting at 7pm, we’ll have people bring in their own electronics junk from around the city. Â Then we’ll allÂ look through the boxes, swap out items and then send the boxes off. Â I am posting a picture below of a sneak peak of what is inside. Â Hopefully these boxes will change significantly before they are shipped off to make it a greatÂ surpriseÂ for whoever receives them.
