Bathsheba Grossman, Santa Cruz, California. 3D sculptures digitally printed in metal. Instant fabrication equipment printed out the artist's 2004 sculpture Lazy Eight directly in bronze. To help with the arduous task of generating intricate surfaces on the metal, she'll write her own computer scripts in Perl. With the advent of affordable 3D printing, she says, "advanced prototyping went from something that was completely in-house at Boeing to something you walk in off the street and order. I can't tell you how cool it is to have your own small hunk of metal."

Dining table with a frosted glass top lit by 448 LEDs that respond, in a complex and gentle fashion, to input generated by motion above the table while we eat.

 

This table was demonstrated at the MakerFaire ( makezine.com/faire/ ) in April 2006. More info here.

 

Update (May, 2007): We have some new interactive coffee tables. You can even buy one if you want to.

 

Update (June, 2008): Schematic released as a free design.

The Lego Lucky cat was in the Lego room at Maker Faire 2006.

She asked what I was doing with the photo. I said I was just putting it on flickr.

www.machinescience.org/ First the image is stippled and then a path is drawn connecting dots which is fed to the Etch A Sketch controller.

They were doing a demo of the next generation of Lego Mindstorm. I told the women from Lego I wanted a Mind Strom Robot that I could program to make other lego sets. All I wanted to was was program it and buy the lego sets. It would do everything else. She did not think that was funny.

Amazing working model of a Difference Engine constructed out of Meccano by Tim Robinson.

 

I also recorded a short video of the device.

 

Seen at Maker Faire 2006.

The Microsoft folks built these really cool tiny solar powered robots. Bugbots, if you will.

Joey and his tattoos. Taken at Maker Faire 2006.

The motorized Etch A Sketch seems to be one of the rights of passage for motion control makers. I made one in February 2004, after finding a deal on 50 new, identical Vexta stepper motors on Ebay. I didn't go all the way to making a stable system ready for display to the masses, and I didn't bother to add a tilt/erase motor, as seen here in Mr. Shapiro's model, but I did write lots of custom Flash Actionscript, assembly code, my own little data format, and got a mini Etch to draw one of my friend's illustrated characters. It was cool to see this model also used Vextas.

Casey tried out a number of shots, at random times.

 

Finally, he got my feet in the shot!

 

I didn't ask where the makers acquired the cart from which they made the wheelchair.

This is a race car with can-lid wheels and a very grubby dildo for a body.

LEDs on one spoke change as they sense the wheel rotating, creating an image on the wheel.

A huge city of Lego was on display in the Lego room. Several sets of train tracks wove through it. This photo probably shows less than 5% of the whole thing.

A Segway with four wheels on display at the Maker Faire.

A giant lego crane hoisting a "normal sized" Lego vehicle. I'd guess that the crane was about 15 feet tall.
