Maker Faire in SW Ohio is a little low on STEM type makers. If anyone is interested in demoing on 9/13-14, let me know as we'd appreciate the diversity!

Appuntamento veloce oggi a aspettando il bus. Solo qualche ricordo di anni addietro in cui i computer di fascia personal, ma non solo loro, avevano memorie di massa di pochi Megabytes (MB). Parliamo di meno di 30 anni fa, il ...

Can someone help?  I work at a children's museum with a maker's space. We love to use LED's to add to our projects but as you can imagine they're so fragile and break very easily.  We are currently trying to find an affordable preferably american source for purchasing large amounts of LED's.  If you use LED (10, 5 and 3 mm) would you mind telling me your source. I would also love to hear alternatives to the LED.  Thanks so much

No worries +Dani Bormann. I like the fact that you are getting kids into electronics and "making". LED's are a great way to start getting them interested.  Let me know if you hit any other roadblocks.

Hi!
After a lot of work fully redesigning HelloSpoon, it was ready for a first involving food and human interaction.
This video is me testing HelloSpoon robot feeding capabilities, as you we'll see it's safe enough to give the next step and test it with children and elderly :-)!

Hope you enjoy the video, and if you find it interesting why don't you share it on any of your social media?
Thanks for watching :-)!

HelloSpoon first full feeding test! and a happy developer :-)!

Hi, 
today I just wanted to try something different for HelloSpoon.
I always wanted to create or at least try to create a visual language for a robot. Well, here's my 2 hours attempt named HelloCode.
It's so simple that actually looks like a little videogame, you grab the cookie inside HelloSpoon mouth, click the button to download it to real HelloSpoon robot, and that's it :-)!
It could be useful to motivate young future robot programmers.

Of course, is not a proper block language right now but this is a good start. Do you like it? Do you think it has potential? 
Share it, or leave a comment :-)!

Spincaster I built. Takes 9 inch molds. Cost a couple hundred bucks or so, most of it in angle iron. Uses the top of a belt driven drill press from Harbor Freight.

Intended for metal. Makes solid castings. Did JUST stumble a low viscosity true plastic. So if I can get a sample, may try that. PETE was just too damn thick... :P  Tin is getting expensive. each of those small ingots next to the blue glove represents about $20 of tin pewter alloy.

Contacting the manufacturer right now about the plastic. About 20 times more viscous than water, or twice as thick as honey. May actually work, just need to bump up the speed.
