In 2012 Super Mondays had it’s most popular event when the team from Maker Space told us about the exciting world of 3D printing, Arduino and the Raspberry Pi. Two years later on March 31st they are back.
Ian Simmons, Makers and the Maker Faire
Ian is the Science Communication Director at The Centre for Life, home of the UK Maker Faire. After traveling the world to attend many Maker Faires and hack spaces Ian will give an insight to the Maker community by telling us about some of the amazing maker projects he has seen from around the world.
Cay Green, 3D Update
Cay has embarked in a PhD at Loughborough University Design School researching further in to 3D printing. She will be giving us an update on the progress made 3D printing in the last 2 years and will take a look at some of the work that allow non-skilled users to make/modify objects.
Glen will also be bringing it his working 3D printer so we can see it is action.
Ed Bisdee, From Arduino to PIC
When we last met Ed at Super Mondays he was an “hit things with hammers” engineer playing with Arduinos for fun. Since then he has changed career and microelectronics is now the day job. This time he is back and will tell us what he learnt moving from the amature to the profesional and give some insights to those wanting to move beyond the Arduino.
Chris Burn, Lots and lots of LEDs
If you pass Maker Space’s window you can not have avoided being mesmerised by Chris’s LED cube. Chris, often referred to as “LED Chris” in Maker Space, has made many LED signs in his life and it is quite possible you have read one of them. He will show off the cube and give an introduction to the magic that makes it work.
Dan Nixon, Custombuild Quadcopter
Dan is building a Quadcopter with full video that will fly itself. The projects, that includes both Arduino and Raspberry Pi, is an ongoing learning experience pushing open technology to it’s limits.
