Join us Wednesday at noon Pacific time for the Learning Through Play Hack Chat!
You may think you’ve never heard of Greg Zumwalt, but if you’ve spent any time on Instructables or Thingiverse, chances are pretty good you’ve seen some of his work. After a long career that ranged from avionics design and programming to video game development, Greg retired and found himself with the time to pursue pet projects that had always been on the back burner, including his intricate 3D-printed automata. His motto is “I fail when I decide to stop learning,” and from the number of projects he turns out and the different methods he incorporates, he has no intention of failing.
Please join us for this Hack Chat, where we’ll discuss:
- Lifelong learning through play;
- Toy-building as a means to skillset growth;
- Sources of inspiration and getting new ideas; and
- What sorts of projects Greg has in the pipeline.
You are, of course, encouraged to add your own questions to the discussion. You can do that by leaving a comment on the Learning Through Play 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, March 13, at noon, Pacific time. If time zones have got you down, we have a handy time zone converter.
Click that speech bubble to the right, and you’ll be taken directly to the Hack Chat group on Hackaday.io. You don’t have to wait until Wednesday; join whenever you want and you can see what the community is talking about.

Sources of inspiration is reading stuff like this.
“BU researchers develop ‘acoustic metamaterial’ that cancels sound”
I missed the chat, is there any way to replay it?
I’ve got the transcript posted at the Hack Chat event page.
Perfect. Thanks! I’ve been a big fan of Mr Zumwalt for a while and printed many of his designs. Was disappointed I missed the chat.
