    Thanks again, @Luke Cyca!

    These are all pretty early in the night, I think we started to forget about it as the space filled up.

    Here's Luke, setting it up.

    Takin' it for a test ride.

    Yes, Moritz _really_ is that tall!

    Hey bro, I think you got something on your lens.

    Tom just DGAF

    And then he found a mirror.

    Cidermatic selfie!

    And a lens for a face.

    Glasses down, Jake. Safety first.


    And the award for "coolest picture of the night" goes to... @Chad!

    Eyyyy! It's @logan.buchy!


    Wait, did it get that?

    Rahul dropped in!

    Along with @Richard Sim, sporting some rad HackADay stickers (thanks for those, by the way!)

    Doug came in to chat about hackspaces - He's taking on more of a role at one of our nearby friend-spaces, Surrey Makercube

    Kevin showing off the excellent cider of the evening

    A brief demonstration

    Some people are less impressed. To be fair, Jon is a hard man to impress.

    OH NO! David's RC goose appears when you least expect it.

    We're gonna miss you Farrell! Just passing through for the last time.

    Yeah buddy!

    A wild Rob appears!

    That's not conspicuous advertising at all. Shame on you, Rob.

    Super chill as always, Mark.

    Roxy's gotta step up, too.

    Dominion Cider. That's the stuff. Even Dan agrees.

    Bruce and Luke made it down for their annual pilgrimmage.

    Don't forget Mimi!

    What do you get when you take the "idol" out of a semi-famous Australian pop idol? This guy! He's got more Instagram followers than any of us.

    And cut!

    Another big shout out to Luke and his excellent cider company, Dominion Cider. Check out cidery's tech blog here (he uses a lot of ESP8266s), and the making of the photobooth here.

    Thanks all, it's been a slice! Hopefully you had as much fun looking at these as we had being there.

    There were goose fights!

    There was phone stand 3D printing!

    There was blacksmithing!

    Lathe training!

    More stuff getting posted, as it comes in.

    The World Create Day was a pretty great excuse to pair up with out semi-regular event, Super Happy Hacker House.

    It's an open house, where everyone can come in, bring a project, talk about things they've done, and then do some lightning talks. Sound familiar?

    The day before, there were fantastic stickers sent in by Hackaday (thanks!), and our social lubrication was sponsored by Dominion Cider. In addition to being pretty great tasting, it's owned by one of our members, @Luke Cyca. He uses VHS to build kickass machines that help him out around the cidery, including tons of ESP8266s scattered around for datalogging and machine control. Check out his tech blog, here, it's totally Hackaday-worthy.

    Also in preparation, one of the first things that was brought in (also by Luke) was his photobooth. You press the button, it snaps a picture, and adds it to the slideshow shown in the teeny tiny B&W CRT up top.

    Pictures from that will slowly start filtering in!
