DIY atomic force microscope via Instructables

It’s that time again! Light news week. Get in touch via Twitter or email if you’ve got news, opinions, or just a link to pictures of sad dogs who ate bees.

Meetup in Cincinnati


Time: Tuesday August 5th at 8 PM.

Location: Hive13, 2929 Spring Grove Ave

Topic: They don’t have a space yet, but they want to throw around ideas for projects, funding, space, etc. Join them or give some advice!

And keep an ear out for a possible meetup in Linz, Austria, also in August.



People had a lot of fun talking about this, including how to build a DIY atomic force microscope. That’s used for high-resolution images of microbial surfaces. If you’re interested, check out the Google Group discussion for a whole bunch of papers and people to chat up about the technology.

Bonus: in Pittsburgh? Get on T.V.!

A T.V. producer solicited the list looking for Pittsburgh biohackers, so give her a shout if you’re in the area and feeling chatty.
