Observe Hack Make 2013


A five day outdoor international camping festival for hackers and makers, and those with an inquisitive mind.
On 31st July 2013, 3000 of those minds will descend upon on an unassuming patch of land, at the Geestmerambacht festival grounds, 30km north of Amsterdam.
Hack in The Random 2600 NL Data Box is present on the amazing OHM event with our own village.

Party tent

(We can rent a very big Party tent from our friends at Bitlair. As part of the deal a donation of €50 to Bitlair is desirable.)

The Bitlair tent was a bit to big to transport it easily to our OHM village. As a fix we're going to buy three small party tents at the Makro. Google this: "Tarrington House Paviljoen Garden star" it is a small party tent with a surface of 300 x 300.

update: 24-07-2013
Went to Makro, they didn't have the product in stock, only Groningen and Delft have it. So they ordered three for me. ETA within two days. They phone me when the tents arrive. Backup-plan when they don't arrive: drive to Delft on a saturday.

update: 27-07-2013
Party tents have arrived and are in our possession. Ardillo will bring them to OHM.


See some pic's of my two trailers, free available for transport of heavy stuff, for anyone with a car with a trailer hitch, see the lower 3 files in the directory below. http://salax.home.xs4all.nl/ohm2013/ ( obviously I will remove the motorcycle-transport gear from my trailer ). Grtz, Xenomatrix.

Projects @ OHM

Some of the things we would like to Observe, Hack, Make in our own village.

  • 13 feet high Blinky - Cancelled due to parts issue's Blinky 1.0
  • Some message board with one or more Wallboard's
  • Have a L0t of \0/
  • Other mind bl0wing ideas FILL IN HERE

BYOD The legacy Xbox

We found an Xbox in our space and we're going to bring it to OHM. So if you have a old Xbox, bring it, then we can make an Xbox-server space. Bring game's as well, we don't have those.
