Let's Make Robots!

2013

Prep for Maker Faire 2013 NYC

Howdy Y'all,

We are starting to get close to Maker Faire this year and I suppose it is time to start getting some ducks in a row.

I am planning on attending Education Day as well as the Fair itself, representing both Let's Make Robots and Rocket Brand Studios. All are welcome of course, as well as your bots. It also looks like I will be the Big Chief of the Booth this year so feel free to drop me a line with questions etc., I am the "super head-guy coordinator guy of LMR at MF, guy".

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!

Campus Party London 2013

UPDATE SEPTEMBER  8:

Well, it's a couple of days now that the Campus Party closed it's doors and I am back home already. 

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.

Mini Maker Faire ShenZhen 2013

Maker Faire has once again come to ShenZhen, China thanks to Seeed Studio. Unfortunately I was only there for about 9 hours on the first day. I'm sorry I have not documented this very well, I was at the DAGU table most of the day. I have now added photos from my friends camera's as well.

I think Maker Faires, even Mini Maker Faires are something that cannot be explained with a few photos and videos. You really need to be there to truely appreciate them.
