During the week a kind person contacted the hackspace and offered to donate some test equipment and books. One of the members offered to go to Croyden and collect the stuff.

With new blood came new and interesting possibilities. There were great discussions about pic programming in assembly, control circuitry for race cars, home heating automation with a Raspberry Pi at the heart of it amongst other tops.
A real interesting topic was a satellite developed in Surrey that is controlled using a mobile phone.
More details on the University of Surrey website
Below is video showing what is in the satellite, what it does and how it's all put together.
So, the hackspace is going from strength to strength with more people taking part.
Here's looking forward to the next meet-up and some more interesting discussions and demos.
