Dave is moving into a HUGE new lab!

What should he do with all this new space?

Great one Dave!

I suggest dedicating all levels to the DODO :)

Let's have a great big EEVblogFORUM meet, greet and buy/swap Electronics get together!

It should be big enough for that!

You could even make a nice youtube video of the meet up.

You can now receive mailbag deliveries by the cargo container load.

I had a massive container load of electronics goodies, gathering dust.

Since I managed to find the delivery address of Altium, I've already sent it off to you. The shippers tell me it weighs about 30 tons.

It should arrive tomorrow, I can't remember the date.

1. Laser tag course.
2. Indoor autonomous aerial vehicle test course.
3. Go-kart track (Needs ventilation)
4. Dodgem cars (Doesn't need ventilation)
5. Laser Interferometry
6. Tear-down of 40 channel mixers in the studio
7. Bigger studio area - with lighting and green room
8. BIG junk box
9. Put your dumpsters outside and label them as free e-Waste drop off (to assist with point 8 )
10. Leverage your physical presence for more influence - to increase dumpster finds of the class of the Keysight scopes

You could have said that you had to keep it secret until now. But the Dicks Smith takeover has occurred, with your partners, and you needed the new bigger premises, to use as the head offices and centralized mail order centre.

You need to keep blogging for another 3 years Dave. Then it'll be back to Sydney and they'll be calling.

The old Altium mega HQ in Sydney will still be vacant in 3 years, so I"m hoping the owner will be so desperate to sell that I can snap it up for a song.  ;D

Turn it into a some kind of school/teaching classes for electronics. Building is perfect for that. I bet peple from all over the world would come there, this blog has made you the most recognizible and the most popular electronics guru in the world. People trust you and that is the most important, they would also trust you in the selection of teachers.

Second, continue selling blog labeled multimeters. Try to expand your offer to more models, including analog ones. If you could make blog branded oscilloscopes that would be perfect because that is the area where you really shine.

Real estate agents aren't necessarily quick off the mark in updating listings - unless its a new listing.  Even if they do get inquiries on this place, they can offer alternatives.  If an interested party has made contact, they'll not waste the opportunity!

It would take at least one FTE (full-time equivalent) person(s) just to manage/clean that building.
Its a beautiful space, but not very practical for subdivision or more industrial uses like hackerspace or makerspace, etc.
I didn't see any mention of an elevator or disability accessibility, etc.

To be honest I might have been suckered if you'd said you'd got one floor of it. The whole building would bankrupt you even if you got the lease for free.

You sneaky bugger Dave! It ant even April 1st here in Brisbane. You got my all exited for nothing :(.

I was going to ask about the possibility of fans coming down for a tour (I'm still sad) and putting the tour date next to the Sydney maker fair. On the plus side, it reminded me about that, I should probably set a reminder so I don't forget. I've done that 2 years in a row now.

I think you should use it for the production of your newly announced line of EEVBlog solar road surfaces. It's truly amazing how simple the solution to the downfalls turned out to be.

Price for the 2nd floor only seems to be about AUD 385000, so the whole shebang probably goes for more than a million AUD.

I PM'ed him, and he explained how he paid for it.

He managed to find 31+2=33 $15,000+extras Keysight scopes just lying in a dumpster nearby, and managed to either swap/barter them or sell them, to pay for the rent. That is why the Keysight prizes, haven't shipped yet.

Probably those 3$ Shenzhen Special multimeters he sells for 300$ a piece  :-DD

When the company I work for moved to a different location I looked into renting the old workshop area. Turns out with my budget I could basically just get a single parking spot in the garage. It was a cheap generic building in a shitty location. No wonder the vacancy rate of office/light industry buildings is so bad.

Black Rustenburg Granite, and what is not black granite is glass, probably not with an IR reflective coating of gold on it either.  Must have a nice big set of Sulzer water coolers on the roof or out at the rear as well to dump the heat into the ambient. 2kW fan motor per unit, and a nice 2kW water circulation pump along with the 20kVA of compressor load as well.

If it were real you could do your own Sparkfun or Adafruit type thing.  Fill it up with parts and design your own doodads to sell.  I'm sure you could fit plenty of pick-n-place machines, ovens, and whatnot. 

I've been watching Dave since he was back in his garage. So it would be cool to see him go from there to that big building.  I wish it were real, it would be cool.   Maybe some day, Dave! ;)

Yep, lousy for transport as many have found out. The occasional bus and that's about it.
And unless the Guvmint was planning on building apartments in Garrigal NP, the population density there is very low (which is the attraction of the area).

Better off leasing it out as upmarket stables, as there are loads of wealthy horse owners in that area! :)

Dave, sublet it to the Australian electronics R & D industry. It could become a EE technology park. Electronics only. No software only businesses, just electronics and firmware development companies. Get funded by the government too, as part of the so-called push to reinvigorate the electronics industry in Australia.

I would be tempted to move down to Sydney from up here in Melbourne to run my electronics business there.

Dave, you won't lose. (Except you might have a lot of lawn mowing to do!).

Does it really matter when it was posted with respect to your local timezone?  Friday was the 1st here in the UK, so it appeared a few days before, but you know that somewhere it will already be the 1st!  :palm:

It wasn't days before, just hours - and how many hours depended on where in the world you are.  From minus a couple (for those east of NZ) to plus 20 or so for Hawaii.

(It's late here - so apologies for not being more precise.)

anyway - i'll keep being stuck to this...

Spooky!

Did Dave just use the 'magic' within his finger to change the reflection? (perhaps he has absorbed too much of the released 'magic' smoke over the years!)  :wtf:

Perhaps Herr R aus B was right?  :scared:

Everyone knows that glass can be used as a delay line. It just took a bit longer for the text in the glass to catch up!

How do you see the tags of youtube videos?? I don't see tags there!  ???

I knows this thread is now old, but I use a Chrome extension called "Tags for YouTube™". You can also find them in the page's source code under keywords.

It's NOT a fraud.

He has had to cancel the order/contract for the building, because he discovered that the height of the building is TOO low, for his later planned, equipment survivability from being thrown from the top of the building, test videos.
A rumor is floating about, that he is trying to acquire a new, 300 metre high skyscraper, for later test videos. (N.B. this post may be a joke).

I would have renamed it to "Dave Tower" instead of an EEVBlog logo.... ;)

Hi Dave, Once you move in to the new Lab, We need to see a tear down of this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UWbASEi7_o&feature=player_embedded#t=0 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9UWbASEi7_o&feature=player_embedded#t=0)

Dave would need to add a health hazard alert in large bold letters at the beginning of that tear down video: "Warning! Might contain Ghostbusters 2016 material."

But I loved the original GB's... I just hope it doesn't become like Star Trek©™ with their TOS, TNG etc...
