The Subtleties of Flight

20120519-193508.jpg

Jasper Hugunin has always wanted to fly, and today on the Innovation Stage he got a shot courtesy of Aero’s flight simulator rig. The wings leverage Wiimotes to give the user a pretty awesome virtual experience of how an albatross gets around.

Aero will be going from 10-10:45 on the Innovation Stage, so get here early tomorrow and check it out.

If you’re walking around Maker Faire you may see a woman skating around with a strange looking instrument. That’s maker extraordinaire Jeri Ellsworth with her  bass guitar made out of a Commodore 64. And did I mention she’s playing it while on roller skates? That’s talent!




3D Printer Trading Cards (From the Future!): Mike’s ORD-ish Printer

Mike's ORD-ish Bot

Mike Hatalski will be exhibiting his “ORD-ish Bot” 3D Printer at the Maker Faire this weekend. Mike describes how he got into printer building:

I was about to start ordering the parts for a MendelMax build when I saw a posting by Bard Dring about a prototype printer he built using MakerSlide. I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands on some MakerSlide and build my own ORD Bot. Technically it’s an ORD-ish bot because I sourced/machined the parts/kit myself. Bart later sold an ORD bot kit through his Makerslide store, and now through Inventables.

Collect them all!
