We had over 32 people attending in the space and out at the fire pit. Hard Drives were destroyed. Large Piles of recycleables got reduced to usable parts. Lots of Food was eaten. Lots of soda and beer was consumed. Eagles fans had a great night.

Super Bowl of Destruction


Everyone is invited to come to the Arch Reactor for the Super Bowl of Destruction. We will have the football game on our big screen for everyone to watch. Not interested in football? Don’t worry, we also throw this party as something for the non-football enthusiasts. As a hackerspace, we use this time to breakdown all of the donations that are no longer usable or fixable. We have hard drives, computers, printers, server equipment, and more! Come join the mayhem and destruction! Bring a Super Bowl snack to share. We had some great food last year.
In addition, this year we are continuing our Hack-a-thon challenge. After the destruction we will rebuild with the donated materials in the Space. This year we will create a hack-cycled (in the sense of using something as it was not intended to be used) robot for our Fire and Ice fundraiser. This will be a large scale collaborative project. Don’t worry if you are not an expert, we will have roles for all skill levels!
 

Destruction starts at 12pm on Sunday, February 4th at Arch Reactor, 2215 Scott Ave. 63103.

On Saturday January the 13th at 1pm Arch Reactor held a Chainmaile class. About 12 people were in attendance. AR brought in an outside instructor named Larry Brown from Inventor Forge.

We covered the basics of making 4-on-1 chainmaille.  Larry showed: How to Wrap Wire to make something that looks like a spring, cutting the spring into ringlets, and connecting the ringlets to make a chainmaille key-chain, then belt and the basic design to turn your chainmaille key-chain or belt into a chainmaille shirt (Hauberk).

Nathan S made this from the instruction he received at class.

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Blacksmithing Class last night. It was good to see so many old and new faces.

Special thanks goes to Myles, our Sergeant At Arms, who volunteered to teach the class and made the forge for us to use.

About Our Hackerspace

Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.

For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
