Here are a few pictures from our latest Show N Tell. This week, we had several great projects shown.
Brad from Ultibots showed off the ability of their 3D printers by bringing in a Hexcopter. There was no flight but telling us about the abilities of their robot. Maybe we’ll invite him to the Makerspace and he can fly it there.
Michael Newman showed off his Video Sans Video Game. A device that moves a paper ribbon with Etch-A-Sketch controls to move a figure. It’s very thought out. There is a video coming soon of this. Michael was also selected by Make Magazine to create a render for a Ford Transit for their Ultimate Maker Vehicle Challenge. You can see a video of his pitch along with some renders and a small description of this project here.
James Dinsmore showed off quite a few interesting things this week. He tried his hand in some hand made Sugru. Using 100% silicon and some cornstarch with a dab of acrylic paint, he managed to make a really bouncy ball and a few other things. He also brought in a bubble machine for his wife’s job to entertain children. I can say it worked. It uses a PIR sensor and a timer to turn the device on and off but only when someone is in the area. Lastly, he was testing some batteries for Jaycon Systems to figure out how big their new batteries were from their trip to China. He created a data logger to determine battery capacity.
Lastly, Chase brought in some EL wire he was playing with. He was able to successfully splice 2 colors together which would make it easier to create more elaborate designs rather than having multiple power supplies.
Come to our next ShowNTell on December 4, 2013 and see what else our members have in store. Or bring something to show yourself!
