Thanks to Rapid Electronics, who very kindly sponsored us 70% of the parts we needed for 40 robot kits, we were able to offer the shonkbot workshop for only £5 per person at the Bristol Mini Maker Faire 2015.
Here’s what 40 kits look like
A table full of happy makers
A few hackspace members braved the long journey to Newcastle to attend the UK’s biggest makerfaire. We all had a lot of fun, saw some great stuff and met lovely people!
Here’s what we took…
David Henshall was showing off his mini mill cnc, which is a plywood 3 axis CNC. It’s designed as open hardware that can be made from scratch or ordered as a kit.
Richard brought his tune on a stick – of EMF camp fame
Matt brought his energy wristband project, and had it hooked up to a miniature fake home so people could play with turning on and off appliances.
And finally, Anton brought giant sketchy – a giant delta style robot that’s powered by an Android phone to draw your portrait!
More pics from Richard can be found here, and some from Matt are here.
