Entropian reverse-engineering an ancient LED panel

Entropia is a small hackerspace in the city of Karlsruhe. It provides space and equipment for students, hackers and other aliens to explore technology, human brains and even alcoholic and caffeine-based beverages. It was founded as the Karlsruhe incarnation of the Chaos Computer Club. Entropia can be considered low-budget since the ~90 members pay a fee of between 0 and 10 € per month.

While Entropia led a nomadic life since 1998, it put down roots on May 17th, 2001 in its current 57 square-meter location.

Entropia (εντροπία) is Greek for entropy and represents (in good old discordian tradition) the dichotomy of chaos and information density. Entropy is a measure of the unavailability of a system's energy to do work and quantifies the information contained in a message.

We like everything.

We do <3 talks, workshops and partying.
