With this online chatroom, we’ll try to have onsite Factor e Farm people on throughout the day dishing out updates from Factor E Farm, along with tasks ranging from CAD to video editing to research to sourcing parts. This will likely be a short experiment (1-2 weeks), but if it works out we’ll keep it going.
Long-term. We aim to bring collaboration into more of a real-time aspect between the workshop and the OSE community. We’ll try to have this running on our laptops here at the farm and check in as time allows. Later on we aim to integrate web cams, pico-projectors, augmented reality, production automation controls, reference materials… The works…
While you could chat anywhere, come here if you want to get some work done!
This is an experimental thing, so we’ll see how it goes. We’re trying to move our development speed to realtime. If it works well, we’ll expand and integrate it tightly with our other online tools currently in development. Hey, if enough people join us, I’ll get our new spriffy pan-tilt servo webcam set up in the workshop so you guys can see what we’re doing live and look around. So yeah!
