1. Hacked Human Orchestra Drop-in Sessions This Week!

    MzTEK needs your help!

    After the success of our first Hacked Human Orchestra workshop, in collaboration Guerilla Science, Engineer Shauna Concannon and Kobakant, we are running two drop in sessions at our home, the Centre for Creative Collaboration, for soldering and making soft sensors! The items created in these sessions will be put towards our Hacked Human Orchestra, which will be taking form at both Shambala and Wilderness festivals in August.

    We need 60 little speakers soldering to wires, which will be the sound outputs for our wearable instruments as well as 99 more sensors created which will be the inputs for playing the instruments! This includes dino spikes, stretchy chains, pompoms and buttons, the latter of which you can see on our wearable piano.

    To see what we got up to at our last Hacked Human Orchestra workshop, please check out the video on Vimeo.

    This will be an un-tutored drop-in session so to attend you do need to have a previous understanding of soldering and working with soft circuits. We will be there of course to assist where needed however :)

  2. MzTEK at Digital Shoreditch!

    Yesterday Digital Shoreditch kicked off for its second year, celebrating the creative techiness which can be found in East London! MzTEK is very proud to be part of the festival and we’ll be participating in a couple of events this week.

    Today MzTEK Co-Founder, Sophie McDonald, will be talking on the ‘Women in Tech’ panel, part of the Innovate day which Queen Mary University and City University London is hosting. The panel will explore how women can be better represented in the digital and technology sectors.

    On Friday we’ll be running a drop-in workshop at the Identity day where female delegates can create a mini beetle bot or a soft circuit voodoo ghost! This is absolutely FREE! To order your free ticket scroll down to the bottom of the Identity day page.

    We hope to see you there! :)
