EWB Turbine Day

August 25th, 2007 by RoscoHead

On 24th August, Engineers Without Borders held a nationwide awareness/fundraising day for their renewable energy programs. I helped them by designing the tower and blades. They completed the design of the nacelle and hub, complete with motors so it could actually generate power.

Stability ensues

August 17th, 2007 by Administrator

Well after some rather irritating issues with my new host, everything seems to be pretty stable now. All the content has been transferred from the old static pages, and can be found from the main page; my gallery is now up & running at usable speed with over 2000 pics already added, note that it has RSS feeds available.

And of course this blog is working fine now, along with the instructions cross reference page. So hopefully now I can go back to just adding more content!

Nationwide LEGO Wind Turbine Competition!

August 10th, 2007 by RoscoHead
EWB Wind Generator Project

Engineers Without Borders Australia (EWB) is building LEGO wind turbines in capital cities across the nation for Engineering Week!

Event details

The public’s imagination will be captured by participating in the construction of over 3,500 LEGO bricks to form a fully functioning three-metre tall wind turbine!

For a gold coin donation, members of the public will add LEGO bricks to the construction.

The wind turbines will be constructed simultaneously in popular public spaces across the nation on Friday August 24th:

  • Brisbane: Queen St Mall
  • Canberra: Garema Place, Civic
  • Melbourne: Federation Square
  • Melbourne: Monash University, Clayton campus
  • Adelaide: Rundle Mall
  • Perth: QV1 building
  • … And a week earlier (August 16-19) in Sydney at Customs House in the city

Live video footage of the progress in each city will be broadcast at each site, setting up an inter-city rivalry to see who can complete their LEGO wind turbine first!

Downtime on the weekend

August 6th, 2007 by Administrator

Apologies to anyone attempting to visit the site this last weekend, my web host found a problem with a script which was chewing their resources, so had to shut it down. The problem is not yet solved, but the rest of the site is now available. Hopefully this will not happen again anytime soon.
