What a beautiful day to visit the realraum, the local and open hackerspace, makerspace and DIY bioLab in Graz :-)

You can find us at Brockmanngasse 15


We 3D printed the hand-powered centrifuges from the puplication Byagathvalli & Pomerantz et. al (2019). It comes a little bit unhandy to unload the samples, but the pelletation of a powder worked well after 5 min. If you need a quick spin and have no electricity, this is it ;-)

Für eine neue Zentrifuge benötigen wir die stärkste Schnur die wir finden können. Fazit: die blaue hält am besten

The right working bench at the OLGA. Most of our chemicals are standing there and the usual equipment like pipettes, bunsenburner and 70% ethanol are placed here. This is the place where our biohacker experiment with geneticly modified organism (GMO) at biosafety level 1.

Welcome to realraum, the open hacker-, makerspce and DIY bioLab in Graz, Austria :-D

Come in and make your projects real. If you need help, ask our friendly members for advice. Look at this pretty face ;-)

Elektret im Selbstbau (statisch aufgeladener Isolater). Man nehme eine selbstbau Villard Kaskade, 50kV und Parafinwachs das im E-Feld aushärtet. Voila, permament gespeichertes elektrostatisches Feld.

A whole week full of slime mold pictures :-D We end this nerdy obsession of that funny biohacker "pet" with a picture of a young plasmodium under an oldschool microscope (10x).

Wer für die letzte Chance auf ein Ticket am 2019-06-18 10:00 CEST noch einen Voucher braucht, möge sich kurz bei uns melden. (höhere Chance via Mastodon)

Tickets sind vorerst aus. Aus wollten 47 Hacker der Chaosfamilie zum Camp. GERADE NOCH ist es sich ausgegangen, dank viel Arbeit und Disziplin aller Beteiligten, tatsächlich für alle Tickets zu bekommen! *glad & happy* 😅

Slime molds can be storaged by bringing a well grown plasmodium into the dormant stage of a "sclerotia". When it is done carefully on filter sheets (like on this picture) the sclerotia becomes orange, can be stored for a long time and shared with friends or other biohacker :-)

Slightly impressed that I can talk to an sensor using over this way-tooo-long cable in that setup.

The whole things is to test the firmware for our planned dew point controlled cellar ventilation system.

In hackerspaces slime molds, like Physarum polycephalum, are quite popular because it's easy to use and you can do a lot of experiments with it.

here we wanted to try out if the slime mold would use a brigde of wet filter paper to get from the left agar to the right one :-D

Slime mold (Physarum polycephalum) growing towards a wet filter sheet.

Going into the biolab and getting a wonderful picture of a slime mold, growing like that on oak flakes and seeing that yellow plasmodium heading in one direction, is a great way to start a week. have fun :-D

Our new shelf is stable, sturdy cozy and contains not artificial intelligence.
