Let's Make Robots!

Send your robot to Maker Faire

Can't make it to Maker Faire this year?

Maybe your robot can!

Last year, quite a few people sent their robots to me to be displayed at Maker Faire. They were a big hit! I even made up some shirts to thanks some of the folk that sent robots from far away.

 

This year, guibot and the great team over at artica.cc sent me one of their Magabot tele-presence robots. It just arrived and it is really cool. I can't wait to get is all set up. Maybe some of you can come to Maker Faire via tele-presence. More on that later...

 

In the mean time, if you would like your robot to come to Maker Faire, even without you, please comment below or PM me quickly. There's still time, but the longer you wait, the less likely you'll be able to ship it to me on time!

I must admit that it makes me rater proud when I see Chris printing my TBT design. It looks like it’s coming together nicely.
Thanks for sharing!

Yes it is. Chris decided to adjust the wheels a bit to fit the more common 608 sized bearings (we both have a pile of them available). I think the belts will have to be a bit longer too.

I can't wait to get my TBT! Thanks for creating it.

W00t!

One day maybe printing will be so fast that instead of people shipping their robots to MakerFaire or other events, they'll just have them replicated on the spot. ; j

... September?

Might be able to cook something up by then ... maybe. I'll get in touch.

Hee hee. That'd be sweet.

... could maybe represent me at NY Maker Faire if you think it's worth the trouble.

But the trip to CP took it's tribute ... wheel tore off. It's fixable I think but no time right now. 

I'm off for another week to Spain this time I'll let you know when I get back.

Cheers!

CRAB would be very welcome. Let me know if he can be repaired in time!

hahaha that shirt is awesome!!!

You too could be the proud owner of a shirt like this. Just send me a cool robot for Maker Faire. ; j

I'll send you my new one (should manage it to finish it end of this month :)
