Join us on Wednesday at noon Pacific time for the X-rays and high-voltage Hack Chat!
Fran Piernas likes to push the envelope a bit with projects that others might shy away from. A quick glance at his Hackaday.io profile reveals a few of the exciting projects he’s been working on recently, including a DIY X-ray machine and the high-voltage driver needed to run it. Not only that, he’s recently taken his home-brew X-ray rig to the next level – a computed tomography (CT) scanner. His YouTube channel also has some exciting stuff using potentially lethal voltages and ionizing radiation.
Please join us for this Hack Chat, in which we’ll cover:
- How one safely works with high voltage and ionizing radiation;
- Sourcing uncommon components like X-ray tubes;
- How Fran decided to start playing at the edge of the danger zone; and
- What sort of experiments he has in mind for the future.
You are, of course, encouraged to add your own questions to the discussion. You can do that by leaving a comment on the X-rays and high-voltage Hack Chat and we’ll put that in the queue for the Hack Chat discussion.
Our Hack Chats are live community events on the Hackaday.io Hack Chat group messaging. This week we’ll be sitting down on Wednesday, February 20, at noon, Pacific time. If time zones have got you down, we have a handy time zone converter.
