Everyone, 

X-Labs would like to invite you to a presentation about our club, its past projects, and information about our current projects!

If it's your first time hearing about us, X-Labs is a student-run organization at USF. We are a hands-on education group with the twofold purpose of inspiring students and providing university engineering students with hands-on experience. X-Labs accomplishes this through large and ambitious projects such as the development of a USF space program. So far, we have launched several high altitude balloons to the edge of space and flown our own Unmanned Arial Vehicle! X-Labs also designs and builds science demonstrations such as huge Tesla Coils that make lightning and play music.

We are also actively looking for people interested in science and engineering to help us with our current projects. Friday's presentation will introduce you to the club and explain our current club project. If you are interested and know nothing about the club, this is the best meeting to attend. Remember, X-Labs is completely free and anyone is welcome.

The meeting will be held this Friday at 3:30p.m. in ENC3006. This is on the 3rd floor of the Engineering Building closest to the library. There will be pizza, so come early. 

Thank you,
Coyt Barringer
X-Labs President

The 2012 USF Engineering EXPO is now over and the X-Labs show was an awesome success! 

We had a couple thousand people see our show over both days, and all demos worked beautifully. On Saturday, we actually had both Tesla Coils playing music. EXPO is currently the biggest event that X-Labs participates in, and the entire X-labs team contributed a huge amount of time and work to the show. This resulted in the best show we've had so far. Our performance this year will be hard to top, but we already have new projects and improvements lined up. 

For those who don't know what X-Labs is, read About X-Labs

Please email someone on the Contact X-Labs list with any questions or comments.  

If you are here because you saw the show and are interested in joining the club, you are welcome to come to a meeting and see what we do besides EXPO. We will have a large meeting Friday, March 2nd dedicated to any new members or people interested in the club. If you have never been to an X-Labs meeting, please plan to attend this meeting as your first. More information including the location will be posted here as this meeting date approaches, so please check for updates. X-Labs is completely free and the only requirements are curiosity and a passion for learning. We have meetings every Friday at 4:30p.m. on the main USF campus. Meetings typically last an hour or two and we work on actual projects after the meeting. 

Here is a video of the X-labs show that Joe Register put together:

Major X4 UAV Progress! The X-Labs X4 UAV has flown! About two weeks ago, we tested the plane at a field and got it in the air. X4 was under regular RC control and the entire video system worked like a charm. We are currently working on the Autopilot. 

Here is the video from the flight:

X-labs has been making great progress on our X4 UAV project! We have most of the parts so we can finally start doing what we do best - building! The UAV will be built over the next couple weeks; this means that we will have more "build" meetings outside of the normal Friday meetings. I will send emails out whenever we meet so any available members can help with the build.

The website has been updated some as well. Please check out the "High Altitude Balloon Projects" link and the "X4 High Altitude UAV" link on the left.

Here is a picture of the UAV components that we currently have:


 
4/24/11 Site Update PDF Print E-mail

Hello Everyone, 

The X-Labs website is currently undergoing some improvements, so if things on the site seem weird or different over the next week or two it is all normal. I am currently working on improving the content and layout of the site. The bad spam problem should now be over due to the addition of the re-captcha I added in the account creation form. 

It would be great if everyone could take a look at the updated content via the links on the left side of the page. I will be adding more content mainly to the X4 UAV page. Please let me know if any X-Labs members are interested in writing content. 

We are making great progress as a club, lets keep up the good work! 

Thanks, 

Coyt Barringer
