Animatronics Experimenter's Kit

1 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Aaron Fecther, creator of Showbiz Pizza's Rockafire Explosion, sells a kit for making a talking head animatronic robot. In this example he uses an air compressor, a light switch and a cassette deck to control the performance - exactly the same technology he used in the 1970s. A lot of people in the YouTube comments ask about using computers or MIDI, and I'm sure this is possible as well.

You can buy the kits from http://www.aaronskit.com

FAMiLab Rapid Prototyping

At BarCampOrlando this weekend, i met Dave from TEDxOrlando - he showed me his TEDx business card holder, and told me it was printed by a rapid prototyping robot down at FAMiLab.

They have a lot of fun toys down there, and I have just found out they also have a mailing list:

A Lego Robot that Builds Lego Houses

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Making your own rapid prototyping machines at home is now not uncommon, but this is one of the first meta-bots I've seen - a robot made of Lego parts that prints using Lego parts as the raw material. Apparently, you can design the creations in a Lego CAD program, and feed them to this machine. It even presses down the bricks!

BarCampOrlando is back and is going to be bigger and better than ever. The Orlando Scene has quickly proven it can put on one of the premier BarCamp events in the US, and quite possibly the world. BarCampOrlando is a 1 day 'unconference' offering all attendees the opportunity to share their knowledge by giving short talks on ANY subject. This year we will have 3 different rooms to showcase the participants and sessions of different lengths to accommodate more content then you can shake your marshmallow stick at. BarCamp by it's nature has no schedule, no keynote speaker, and no main topic of conversation - the participants decide the who, what, how, why and when - we just pick the where! Please register for the event so we can plan accordingly! P.S. BarCamp may still be looking for sponsors - any amount will be accepted. We have a "fill in the blank" sponsorship available for those who can't swing $100 or $300, as much as they might like to.
