Episode List

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.

Videos for LMRv4 Fundraising

 

Make Some Videos!

I'm encouraging people to record a 30 second or less video at home and send me the file, or link on YouTube or other hosting site. Doug and I will compile a video of LMR members explaining why LMR is so important to us, and asking for support. If we show the world how much we care about LMR, and what this community has done for us, they'll care too. Maybe enough to contribute a few bucks.

I've linked the videos I've received so far at the bottom of this post.

 

LMR on Twitter

LMR is on Twitter under the name LetsMakeRobots.

LMR Tweets (updated 2012-04-22)

Want to be the voice of LMR?

Updated: 2012-04-22:

I've been 'voice' behind LMR's Twitter account since June 2011. I think it is time for others to add their voices.

This post was originally intended to keep the LMR Twitter content going while I was away on a two week vacation. GeneralGeek and BotFIN did an admirable job of covering for me, and my thanks goes out to them.

LMR is Shutting Down!

 

It's a sad, sad day. After four great years, Let's Make Robots is closing up. 

Operating expenses have risen, and the site has gotten so big. Some of you may have noticed performance problems of late. This is due to the load on the hosting site, which is donated by a generous LMR member. It's kept LMR online for four years, but it is just no longer adequate. 

LMR Robot Building Workshop at Maker Faire NYC!

Ta Daa!

Thanks to the kind sponsorship of our friends at  we will be able to offer a robot building workshop at Maker Faire in New York this year!

 Details will follow, but Picaxe will supply the PICAXE-08 Motor Driver Board, along with some funding.

Make April LMR Donation Month - Spread the Word!

Hey, everone. 

 

 

We should try for a BIG PUSH all during April to get the word out about the LMR fundraising. We are thousands of people, so the best way to reach people is to use our numbers to our advantage.

Maker Faire 2012

Let's go to Maker Faire!

Organization and volutneers

I plan to go to the New York event for certain.
