How to create teams to work on stuff (collaboration)?

Hi there, I just joined this site and have several ideas I would like to work on.  However, it is often much better to work in teams so we can pool expertise and work off each other's creativity. Is there functionality on this site to do this? What I was thinking of was - Functionality to allow users to create a team to work on a specific projects (the current group functionality) - Ability to invite people to join this working team - Ability to develop group reources From what I see at the moment, the site allows individuals to share, and people can then comment. However, there is not a lot of room for collaboration, unless I am missing something. Regards, Martijn

Open Call : DIY Collab Teams

I'm working on my MFA for Design & Tech at Parsons in New York, and my thesis is on DIY collaboration teams. I propose a set of open source knowledge collaborations. The benefit will show when our innovations make it to the products we use daily. I envision the forum section as a discussion area, with the instruction set side being more of a workspace. I will also create a wiki to act as a collection of the innovations / knowledge gained from these projects. Why is this interesting? This community has a ton of potential, with users that have specialized skills in almost any industrial field. We already modify or create things as we see necessary, and teach each other what we learned in the process. I believe that if we could collaborate on focused topics there is no limit to the innovation we could produce. It doesn't make sense for product users to be left out of the design process. This is not a new idea, some of the best innovations and discoveries were made by users, not corporations. One of the benefits is that nobody would own the rights to any portion of the project, so it leaves open the possibility for further innovation from interested parties. The main theme here is interest; innovation comes from a community like ours where people are actually interested in what they do. The focus of my research is about the nature of participation within these mini-communities, however you probably know that I will not be able to just sit aside and observe. So within the next week I will be jumping in on a topic that I can contribute to. As for other topics that are proposed, I am more than happy to do whatever I can to help, and I will hook up with the teams to observe the collaborations. Anyone interested, and if so, what topic would you like to collaborate on?

IDEA - Review Team

Here's an Idea that's been on my mind for a while: A review team. I don't know how reviewing works, and would appreciate if someone could explain. The idea would be: If the staff alone (People on the about page) are the ones who have to review stuff that's been flagged, why not have a review team, like the feature team? It would just be to give that ability to someone. When that person is bored, they can just look around the stuff that's been flagged and dispose of it as is necessary.

Hello! We are a Team of makers called the DIY guys. We are in four, four students, and our passion is to get home just to build things. We have built many projects, cool things, science things and other new technologies which can make the world change maybe a little bit. Our dream is to go to the Maker faire, but all of them were in America, and we live in Europe. Now we have the chanse to go to the maker faire 2014 wich will be held in Oslo, norway. The problem is we are students with no or little money, and we can't pay the airplane fly. We have found part-time jobs, but it still isn't enough to pay all that we need to present our team at the Maker faire, so we wanna ask YOU guys, to donate to us.

Team Ball Concept

Dear all,first of all, hello to all of you, I'm new to this site, but I've already seen some wonderful things on here, and they are a true inspiration source for the projects I'm working on during my study as an Industrial Designer.I've got a question about a concept of mine, which I will explain briefly to give you an understanding of what I'm trying to create:When playing a sport, let's take football (by which I mean soccer) there's a ball. My idea is to make the ball represent the ball possession (or actually the ball passing between players) of the teams. For instance, you have a blue and a red team, and what I want to do is make the ball color almost entirely blue if the blue team is in ball possession all the time. This way people will be more stimulated to play with eachother, passing the ball to eachother instead of scoring goals individually.The way I want the ball to change color, is by making it detect when it's being kicked, by a football shoe (which has to have some implemented technology as well). So everytime it's being passed from one player to another of the same team, the ball will color more blue or red. I need some help with the technology as I'm totally new to this aspect, 1. How to make the ball change colors? (LED's, or optical fiber: http://www.imtech.nl/SiteContent/EUPortal/Images/ImtechNV/newsroom/succes/17%20glasvezel.jpg, or any other suggestions?)2.How to make the ball communicate with the shoes?One thing I've been looking into is RFID - chips/reader, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaNnOHSJ-cQ, and then make the RFID-chips with a very limited range, so that only when the ball (with the reader) is close enough, the reader will detect the chip.But this seems like a last option, and I actually want something better.What I basically want is that when the shoe and the ball touch eachother, the coloring will happen. The requirements are that the shoes, must contain unique information so that the ball will know on what team that shoe is, another thing is that it can't be fragile, as the ball will be kicked by the shoe.Now as I'm fairly new to technology, I don't expect to build something with the best technology possible. As I have to write a final report, I will just present the technology idea in it. But it would be great if I could actually show an interactive prototype version of my concept. Therefore, if you have any suggestions, please write down the best possible way to create this, and a probably less perfect way that I can demonstrate (I'm willing to learn a lot over the next few weeks).Thanks in advance!

Need a Game Development Team

Hey all, I'm looking to put together a small dev team for an indie game project that I'm planning. I'm working from the ground up here, so just about every role is still open. Experience is a plus, but I really only ask that you know what you're doing. The project will be a 3D Sci-fi/Fantasy RPG with a unique style of combat that combines the strategic skill-based systems of JRPG with the real-time fluidity of Western games. I'll put the project on a crowdfunding site like Kickstarter after I have a team and the completed GDD, so some stretch goals might include expanding to MMO or VR. I can give more specific details if you have questions. Roles to Fill: Programmer (C++, Unity 3D) Artist Level Designer Composer Scripter/Writer Voices (maybe) I couldn't pay immediately, but payment would probably be a fixed amount or a percent of the crowdfunding. If anyone is interested or has any questions, let me know.

Team Fortress 2 anyone?

 Hello! there is a FREE copy of team fortress 2 up for grabs! just leave a comment. I will not ask you for any personal details (if you have a steam account) if you don't have a steam account, then I'll only need your email. if you are one of my subscribers, then you get priority over the non subscribers. (of course click subscribe and you are the first person, then you get priority! then it boils down to who will offer me more stuff such as 5star rating, other subscriptions from you own subscribers, patches, etc.)  now you may want to know why I am doing this. for my birthday present, a user on this site sent me a gift copy of TF2 on steam. he had bought the game a few months before, and it had came with a gift pass. (a full version of the game sent for free due to masses of sales. ) then, as it was still selling so well, I managed to obtain a gift pass for it. but I have noone to give it to. well thats that, and I do not own any of the stuff here, (except for the gift pass) I did not create TF2, I only play it. and to all of you geeks, then this is not an illegal copy, its fully licensed. Thanks for reading, and LEAVE A COMMENT IF YOU ARE INTERESTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UCs, Toyota Team Up

Toyota has donated two Priuses--one to the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Berkeley and one to the Advanced Power and Energy Program at UC Irvine--for consumer research and upgraded electric car capabilities. The big news: a plug-in possibility that would allow for pure electric power up to 60 mph, a significant upgrade from the current 30 mph limit (after 30 mph, some gas is needed). A 7 mile commute could be done purely on electric energy, with no gas. Additionally, the universities will do research on people's reactions to charging their car and trying to gauge consumer preferences.This is not particularly new, but it could still be huge for the electric car community. Thanks to Tim Anderson for bringing this to our attention.Link

So Team Fortress 2 Is Down

Since a few days ago many Team Fortress 2 Players have been experiencing a frustrating anomaly. Team Fortress 2 (and on occasion other source games) DO NOT WORK! This is very frustrating, opinions have been voiced that it is due to extreme server overload due to all the F2P people coming in by the thousands. This is not only frustrating but also unfair, ask one of my very good friends who actually pre-ordered Team Fortress 2, was a dedicated Gamer and Beta Tester but has now been demoted so much he can't even boot up the game anymore, while several F2P "gamers" had no trouble at all booting the game up. Does anyone else see a problem with this?

Team Fortress 2 Is Now Free

As of the Uber Update for Team Fortress 2 the game is now free. Anyone can download it as long as they have steam (which is also free.) Whether this is heralding a new game release or valve is simply trying to give us a freebie I have no idea but it is still something worth checking out. Note: as it is now free their servers are jam-packed with people both playing and trying to download, I had a friend who had to wait almost 4 hours for his download to start and another 5 for it to finish. However do not let this deter you as the wait is worth it. P.S. Meet the Medic has (finally) been released and I would embed it on this topic but I have no idea how.

TARC (Team America Rocketry Challenge) 2008

TARC (Team America Rocketry Challenge) is the world's largest rocketry competition. Teams must design, simulate, build, and fly a rocket capable of carrying two raw eggs to 750 feet (no more, no less). The eggs must stay aloft, under a parachute, for precisely 45 seconds. About 700 high school teams compete each year, and the top 100 teams are invited to the finals in Washington DC. My team (#6081) was invited this year. We are a first year team and we finished 13th out of 643 teams. Here' what happened: We woke up bright and early on Saturday to prep the rocket. We put it on the launch pad and declared that it was ready to fly. The rocket zoomed up to 742 feet and stayed aloft for about 41.5 seconds (the goals are 750ft (no more, no less) and 45 seconds (again; no more, no less)). Both raw eggs survived the journey and we were awarded a score of 15.02 (the lower the better). We watched nervously as the other 99 teams launched their rockets. By around 1:30, nearly every team had launched and we were in 7th place! The top 18 teams are required to fly again (the average of the two scores is used to determine the rankings). As we were preparing the rocket, the Stealth B2 Bomber flew overhead - it was spectacular! With the B2 safely out of the way, launching resumed. Our rocket (because the winds suddenly died) flew higher than expected to an altitude of 783 feet and stayed aloft for 44 seconds, giving us a score of around 35. Unfortunately, this score demoted us to 13th place. After the initial disappointment, we were thrilled - our first-year rocketry team had beaten 643 other teams from around the country - we were in the top 2% of rocketry teams all over the United States of America! In addition, because we were one of the top 18 teams, we were invited to attend the NASA Student Launch Initiative (SLI). SLI offers a stipend for a teacher to attend a week long program with NASA focusing on how to integrate hands-on aerospace projects into math and science classrooms. After completion of the program, student rocketry team members are invited to submit a proposal to NASA for a rocket designed to fly one mile high with a scientific payload. If approved by NASA engineers, NASA hires us to build - and fly - our proposed rocket. The entire team is thrilled to have this opportunity! I thought many students who browse this forum might benefit from this post. TARC is an amazing opportunity, and with so many ingenious people on Instructables, the veteran teams will have to fight hard next year!

Please note that once funding is approved you will be offered a full-time position.  You will NOT be asked to do any work without knowing you will be offered a full time position. A non disclosure agreement has already been drafted and will have to be signed before any discussion about the game can take place. If you are interested please contact me at dave.anders@verizon.net. Again I am looking at all parts of the development process. If you do not know the Unity Engine that does NOT disqualify you as there are many parts to the video game developement process that exist outside of Unity.

New build: team fortress 2 sentry

Hello fellow diy enthusiasts!  for those of you who went to Fanime in san jose, you may have heard a rumor of a working sentry being made for next year. No? Well, the rumor's true!  I am working on a portable sentry (level one only...sorry).  Its all part of an engineer outfit from team fortress 2.  My hopes were to have it with motion-tracking capability.  This was before i realized how hard it is to find actual motion tracking equipment.  So, i got a few problems.  One is the motor system. I just got off the phone with a guy from an electronics store who happens to be an electrician, and he recommends either an oscillating fan motor, or two 9 volt r/c motors (with limit switches to make it oscillate).  My problem will be where to put it all.  I got a camera tripod, and am planning to get a laptop attachment, as well as an old slide projector for the gun body.  way i see it, i attach the motors to the panning handle, or lock the pan in place, and mount the motors on the laptop, then attach the projector to the motors....but that'd look awkward.  The magitek armor has been put on hold unfortunately...that build may have been one of those impulse things, but i may get back to it yet.  At any rate, to review, my problems are 1)what kinda motors to use 2) placement of components, and 3) finding/making this thing track motion.  Once more, i appreciate input!

Common And FAQ: What is Guardian about? “Guardian” is a computer game being developed by Boundless Game Studios © that has an adventure/fantasy genre with a toon style. It features a character name Swen who’s name can be changed by the player at the beginning of the game. Swen will have to embark on a great journey with some help from his guardian Bounda. A fallen guardian from the sky has fused with the person he/she sworn to protect. Now chaos has been let out in Swen’s world. Tell me about the setting and the feel of the game? The setting takes place in a vibrant and colorful world known as Valenia. Also, a few glimpses of Bounda’s unknown world Anaira. “Guardian” will give the player a feeling of adventure, curiosity, and a rush in battle. The game art will be beautiful. How is the combat in the game? The fighting in the game will have preset combinations like swinging your weapon left, right, vertical, down. If you press the attack button once there is only one attack action. Press multiple times and this will give you more attacks with Swen’s sword. There will be more special sword attacks. You will also be able to have 3 items/weapons equipped at a time. This does not include your sword but does for shields. So be careful what you equip. Player can target enemies. Who do I play as? The main character is Swen and you control his role in the game. Which is the hero. Dialogue? Yes the game will have scrolling text and possibly voice dialogue. The player will be able to pick 1-3 choices to reply back with. Does Swen talk? Not literally but he does through the choices you make. He does have sound effects though. How are the camera controls? The game includes a button that will give u a fast switch between camera views. Ex. 3rd person view to first person view. Camera view will adjust to enemies that are targeted. Use the mouse to use the rotating view or simply don’t press any buttons for a minute to auto switch to rotating view. What are the main features in the game? You know the cool stuff? The team would really like to focus on the gameplay, story, and all the cool places, items, or weapons to discovered. The main sword can be altered many times (shapes of blades) which will give that certain sword an effect like extra damage, fire, ice, more magic, and more. How about getting to name your sword? Tired of using your sword and want to shoot something with a bow? maybe a blow gun? Well switch to first person and fire away! Selling treasure. Reading books to find short stories or VALUABLE information. Don’t forget the easter eggs.. There will be more features listed in the future.This game will be free for everyone. Doesn't matter if your new or a veteran. You can come and go on the project. It will be fun to have a lot of people helping out. I am aware that people like seeing progress before they are willing to lend out a helping hand.I will make sure everything goes smoothly as possible. My team mates and I talk on Skype everyday. I feel its important to get to know everyone as well and working with them. I don't want this to be work. Lets have fun. Please do not post negative comments. I'm looking for people interested and not downers. Skewl made the 3d model of the blue bird.
