Made@MCT: Flaschen Taschen

Over the course of three months, members, volunteers and staff at MakerspaceCT created our own interpretation of Noisebridge Hackerspace’s Flaschen Taschen, a grid of 1,575 glass soda bottles filled with individually addressable color-changing LEDs to create a giant, low-resolution interactive art piece.

Thanks to Avery’s Soda in New Britain, we assembled the components necessary to realize this project here at MakerspaceCT. The project was launched on June 21, 2019 during National Week of Making and is now completed as of September 13, 2019.

MakerspaceCT’s Flaschen Taschen had its public debut at Small State Great Beer in Hartford on Saturday, September 14, 2019. Now that the project is completed, the display will be open for tinkering and hacking at our space. We hope to make the display available for more public events in the future as well.
