Pics for updated Maker Faire Postcard

Hey, All!

The first year we did Maker Faire, we created a really neat postcard that included lots of pictures of robots from LMR members. I want to update the postcard with some more recent pics.

Please let me know in the comments below if you have a nice pic of one or more of your robots you'd like to contribute. Include a link to the robot page where your image is posted.

I have room for about 8-10 new pics, so let me know ASAP!

Maker Faire NYC 2013

Let's Make Robots has been rocking the NYC Maker Faire since 2011. This year Chris the Carpenter will be manning the helm. I'll be helping with some planning and logistics and crap like that.

Update: 5 August 2013

Maker Faire Application

Know any robot makers going to Maker Faire Bay Area?

Does anyone have any personal contacts for robot makers who are attending or presenting at Maker Faire Bay Area this year?

I've been lucky enough to be invited by MAKE to cover robotics for the event. I'll have access to a list of all the robot-related makers and vendors. However, if anyone knows a robotics company, group, or maker who is attending I can make a special effort to get over to see them.

I'm really excited about this opportunity. It's the first time MAKE is asking a non-staffer to participate with their team in this way, and I want to do a really good job.

LMR Banner Available for Events

Hey, all! Oddbot had this great banner created for the ShenZhen Mini Maker Faire. 

The original banner is 2.8m x 1.8m @ 300dpi giving a resolution of  33,071 x 15,354 pixels. Here is a much smaller one for you to look at. Click on the photo for a bigger image.

Instructables Hands-On Learning Contest -Picaxe Maker Faire Special

Hey all. Instructables is running a Hands-On Learning Contest. Some folks might be interested in making an entry.

I've entered the Picaxe Maker Faire Special Robot kit that Chris the Carpenter and I are designing into the contest. You can Vote For It using the banner link at the top of the Instructable. Any votes would be appreciated.

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.

Maker Faire Bay Area

I haven't seen anyone post about going to the Maker Faire Bay Area on May 19-20 2012, so I thought I'd post this. 

I know that RobotGrrl will have her own table at the Faire. She may have an LMR poster with her, and one of Chris' robots to display along with her own. Stop by her table and say hi if you are going.

Maker Faire NYC 2011 Summary

The Let's Make Robots team had a great time at Maker Faire NYC. 

LMR received two Maker Faire Editor's Choice Blue Ribbons. One from Becky Stern and one from Chris Conners

That doesn't include blue ribbons awarded to individuals who are also LMR members, like the two given to RobotGrrl!
