A Maker Faire in South London? Sign us up!
We did, we’ll be there, and we’ll got lots to show and tell, including the latest on our new permanent home.
Come find our stand in the Faire, where we’ll be showing what we’ve been making –
Yulia Silina will be showing ‘The Distant Heart’, a beautifully crafted computational necklace that is part of her research into rectifying the emotional void created when families, friends and loved ones move away from each other.
Tom Lynch will be showing his split-flap display. It’s a bit of a mouthful to say but mesmerising in action, crossing twitter streams with the clack-clack-clack of railway departure boards. He’s also a main organiser of the Faire, so go Tom go!
Toby Harris will be showing his *spark d-fuser mixer that crossfades between two laptop’s output. It’s a product that ships worldwide, that started as an arduino hack. He’s also giving a talk about the project at 12.30. If you’ve ever hacked together a prototype idea but not known where to go from there, come and find out.
Gordon Endersby will be showing his work on the Makerspace’s Doorbell and Doorbot, one wonderfully heath-robinson and the other seriously serious.
Alongside those finished projects we’ll be showing work-in-progress brewing amongst our members, including mathematically derived lampshades and the latest salvos in the SLMS delta vs. cartesian 3D printer tweaks.
But most of all, come and see our plans for the our new railway arch space, and chat about the future. As some members will be at the Maker Faire, so will others be making our Makerspace. Exciting times!
