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.

Shipping props/gripes thread

A while ago we went off on a tangent about how China post can get away with shipping things so cheaply. That got me wondering if there was a consistent difference between Sino-American shipments from different provinces(eg-does a package from Shenzhen to Nebrahoma usually arrive any faster than one from Hong Kong or Nanjing?) I started looking at my recent purchase history and to my surprise, THERE IS NO TREND. The fastest and slowest shipments were both from Shenzhen.

A little robots journey - Epilog

Finally EL2ISA2 aka Artoo is back from his journey. Like in the vaste of the universe he was travelling thousands of lightyears kilometers/miles throught China: Following up the previous travel reports: Tatooine, here and here. Here are some of the pictures and comments of his adventure.

Mini Makers Faire - ShenZhen, China - LMR will be there!!!

Much to my surprise and delight, DAGU will be attending the Mini Makers Faire in ShenZhen. We will also try and setup an LMR stand. I know this is short notice as the Faire is only 1 month away but I would like to invite LMR members to attend or at least send in one of their robots.

Links to photos and videos will also be welcome. I will get the photos printed and use them as a backdrop. I will have at least one large computer monitor playing LMR videos.

China 2010

21-5-2010

A few things have happened this last month. I meet Xiao Yue (Little Moon) about a month before I went to Australia. She can't speak much English and my Chinese is still very bad but she seems to like me anyway.

This was taken on her birthday. There was a bit of a food fight with the cake so we ended up with cream on our faces.
