Each week we’ll endeavour to publish some details of the interesting things that members of DoES Liverpool have been up to over the past seven days. You can find out a bit more about them in our introductory post.
And remember, if you’re involved with DoES Liverpool at all, let us know what you get up to so we can include it here!

Things of Note
- DoES Liverpool: The latest quote in the corridor outside DoES Liverpool – not being seen by many people now…

- Alex Lennon: It’s very strange times friends. But remember, the wheel turns and we will get through this together. We just need to stay calm and to look after each other. There are no stupid questions. I live in L22. If you need to talk about anything DM me #weeknotes
- Alex Lennon: Just had a lovely meditative sit with Choden and lots of other people Mindfulness Assoc. They are now having daily sits, then chats, at 7pm every day. #weeknotesis-tracking-link-api-prod.appspot.com/api/v1/click/4… pic.twitter.com/YUxvEp0xKU
- Ross Dalziel: DoES Liverpool laura pullig Thanks laura pullig & Jackie Pease Good to see #wearables in modular felt form of power pack, sensor, light, motor and sound. Also nice talking about DIY plant dyes! #weeknotes
- Adrian McEwen: Doing a test print of a #3Dprinted face shield from a design OKed by the Spanish health service, that Jackie Pease found, on the DoES Liverpool Ultimaker #weeknotes #COVID19 pic.twitter.com/OjOGz8SXnX
- Adrian McEwen: Raiding the DoES Liverpool stores for face shield prototype materials: mylar and polyprop model’s own; laserable foam from Ross Dalziel; adhesive foam and elastic from the prosthetics group, and tiles from HEX; velcro from sewing supplies #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/ehp46YbU0X
- Alex Lennon: So here’s a laser cut design. The plastic is too short but shows the idea. Acrylic in a few minutes on a laser cutter here DoES Liverpool. It’s offset at the front and seems robust enough #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/lffUKSBMv4
- Adrian McEwen: Nice to see Paul Ellis‘s recreation of the Royal Liver Building clock (as cut on the DoES Liverpool laser-cutter) on the adafruit industries blog! #weeknotes blog.adafruit.com/2020/03/23/the…
- Adrian McEwen: Another productive day in the DoES Liverpool visor factory. More iterations on the laser-cut design with me modelling the latest. Kept the 3D printers busy all day too #weeknotes #Corvid19 pic.twitter.com/V5I473YJm1
- Adrian McEwen: Got my laser-cut #COVID19 visor design nailed down. More comfortable, slimmed down for better visor placing and to use less material & cut paths reduced for a speedier 1m18s cut time. Still need to get it fully OKed by the medical folk, but I’m pleased with where it is #weeknotes pic.twitter.com/BfqnqNbftd
