My other side project–DIYdrones–is going to be part of the GeekDad booth at Maker Faire this weekend in San Mateo. It’s booth 166 in the Expo Hall (click on the map for detail), all day Sat and Sun. We’ll be showing:
- The BlimpDuino
- The Mindstorms
- The Basic
- The Lego Mindstorms FIRST
Tech Challenge competition kit (first time seen on the West Coast!)
Also, our rocket friends will be there in our booth with a 22-foot Delta Rocket that has to been seen to be believed. If you think the amateur UAV guys are nuts, you should see the amateur rocketry guys. They also seem to have unlimited budgets (it helps that some of them are VCs).
I’ll be giving a live demo of the Lego UAV at the Maker Main Stage on Sunday at 1:30. (No flying alas, but if the air currents are calm I might let a blimpbot loose to do its patterns)
