Intel Experience Store – Day 18 Recap: More Macro Images, Harvesting Pager Motors, and an IBM ThinkCentre

by Carlyn Maw on January 26, 2014, no comments

Day 18 was way back on January 21st, the same day as Hackaday: The Gathering. It is pretty clear that if I don’t start the blog post immediately after the shift,  the post will be lame sauce. However, going to The Gathering was totally worth it.

I made a subset of the top-24 images from that day including the necklace I whipped up to wear to the Hackaday event. I enjoyed taking more super-macro images, this time with the lense from a cellphone camera. Also salvaged, 3, 3! different pager motors to help with my secret project.  I also marveled over the thoughtful design work that went into the IBM ThinkCenter. Now that is a computer designed to be easily repaired and upgraded. A true pleasure.
