We are looking for multimedia (mostly graphics) artists for a democompo
project. You do not need to have an expert level in programming to
participate (if your only contribution is good looking bitmap images,
that's already a lot!), even though a little background is advisable if you
want to do animated thingies or some rendered effects (we could help you

This mini-project consists in developing a compo on the Milkymist open
hardware system-on-chip platform that will present Sanobot, the toxic gas
sensor and Twitter bot of /tmp/lab, a hackerspace set up close to a
chemical factory.

We look forward to presenting it at demoparties (unfortunately it was not
ready for Main#4).

So if you think you could design some cool graphics for this project,
contact sebastien dot bourdeauducq at lekernel dot net. There is nothing to
win, except loads of geek fun, some technical background, and hopefully a
demoparty prize ;)
