Bristol Dorkbot is back after its summer break. This month, we have:
- Damon Rand of Clean Energy Prospector (CEPRO) will talk about their latest project, a radio-operated substation energy display that is being trialed in 50 homes in Easton. The Internet of Things display is Arduino Mega based, uses Pervasive Displays ePaper to extend battery life and a long-range, low power radio for communications.
- Richard Sewell (@jarkman) will be demonstrating The Tune On A Stick - which went down really well at EMF Camp.
- Beforehand, will be the Botlab AGM (the co-op who look after Bristol Hackspace). There will be a quick review of accounts followed by voting in any new committee members.
7pm Botlab AGM
Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, Bristol
This month’s speaker had to postpone - so let’s take it as a sign and put Dorkbot on hold until the autumn.
If there’s anyone you’d like to hear at Dorkbot or you’ve got something you’d like to present then get in touch.
Sorry for the late notice - there’s no Dorkbot on June 17th. Should be back in July.
May’s Dorkbot is Show and Tell hosted by Kaspar.
7.30pm for 8pm, May 20th in the Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed.
April Dorkbot will be a Show and Tell hosted by Kaspar.
Come along and show us what you’ve been up to.
In the Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed - 7.30pm for 8pm.
Sorry, there’s no Dorkbot meeting this month but we will be back in April.
Dave McGoran and Seb Valade from Rusty Squid will talk and demonstrate the technical details behind Book Hive.
Book Hive is an interactive sculpture created to celebrate the 400 year anniversary of Bristol Libraries, which features 400 animatronic books in the foyer of the main library.
(Or, 400 minus the ones they bring along to Dorkbot for us to examine…)
Tuesday February 18th in the Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, Bristol. 7.30pm for 8pm start.
In the previous week, they’ll be giving the Pervasive Media Studio Friday Talk on the 14th (but without so much of the techie goodness).
This month’s Dorkbot is a Show and Tell session. Bring along any interesting toys you got for Christmas or anything else you’d like to chat about.
7.30pm for 8pm in the Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed, Bristol.
No Dorkbot this December but we will be back in the new year.
Which leaves you free to go to Submergence - back with an all new show on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th.

Damon Rand of Clean Energy Prospector (CEPRO) will talk about Simtricity Wifi-enabled smart meters. Traditional electricity meters and even the latest generation smart meters use complex, energy industry specific protocols. Simtricity meters are fully compliant with UK standards for revenue-grade metering but act as a first-class ‘Internet of Things’ devices. Users setup the meter to connect to their Wifi broadband network then configure the system to deliver data anywhere on the web for visualisation. In this talk Damon will talk about progress so far and next steps.
Tuesday 19th November 2013 - 7.30pm in the Pervasive Media Studio at Watershed.
