Unfortunately after trying our hardest to find a way to make Elephant & Castle Mini Maker Faire 2015 happen, it appears not to be possible.

If anyone knows of a sponsor who can help us fund the event, please get in touch, otherwise, we highly recommend visiting Brighton Mini Maker Faire on the 5th September.

If you missed the past events, or just want to know what our Maker Faire is about, check out our photos, and the video below:

Maker Profile: Atomic Arcade

Atomic Arcade is an interactive atom-building simulator that allows users to build their own atoms by ‘firing’ protons and neutrons with buttons in an arcade machine. The behaviour and movement of the particles are designed to illustrate the basic behaviours of atomic nuclei, and the relationships between the chemical elements. This will be a visually engaging piece of art as well as a game, using humour, animation and explorational gameplay to communicate scientific principles.


The beta version of this game is available to play online now at http://springtale.co.uk/atomic-arcade/


Maker Profile: Emerging Spaces Workshop with Digihaus

  • Create complex and visually ecstatic emergent structures and spaces using our laser cut geometric components.
  • Assemble and make unique custom designed furniture using our pre laser cut components.
  • An opportunity to discuss and design alternative solutions to design your own unique optimum space, structure or furniture piece.
  • Interact and use SketchChair design App to design your own optimum designed furniture ready for fabrication.

Our hypothesis is that complex (i.e. highly integrated functions) architectural solutions can emerge, within a cohort of humans, where no conscious pre-planning or strategising takes place before, or during construction. We wish to experience how complexity emerges in natural swarms to give you a first hand experience of what it is like to be a physical agent or indeed a digital agent. – Dr. Ruper Soar

DigiHaus is a design & digital fabrication studio based in the heart of London, specialising in design and fabrication of bespoke products. Their team is composed of highly trained designers and technicians all passionate to further the potentials of laser cutting and 3D printing.

Maker Profile: CubeMate

CubeMate allows colleagues, friends and flatmates to share their moods with each other without having to say a word. It’s a small cube consisting of interactive and funny lit-up faces. CubeMate can be placed in a common space of the office or the house, so everyone can see you mood. By clicking on its top face, people can communicate each other their mood thanks to the LEDs arranged on the front face.


CubeMate can display facial expressions, through specific lighting shapes, that correspond to four moods: “happy”, “calm”, “angry” and “sad”. Top faces of CubeMates are made in different colors and each person can choose his/her own color. This cube can improve cohabitation quality in shared spaces such as a flat share or office. Everyone can now let each other know if they want to be alone or if they want company!

Navigating the subway of Elephant & Castle

We are aware that many people will be new to the area so we’ve prepared a simplified map of the area to help navigate from the shopping centre, National Rail and London Underground stations.
