Running a ride at Maker Faire

shaftcoupling

This year at Maker Faire New York I’m helping run the Dueling Mechanical Bulls with The Madagascar Institute. Hungry attendees love to ride the bulls… when they’re working. Saturday morning we blew a shaft coupling and one of the bulls has not quite recovered. Hackish fixes came and went through the day, and this morning we’re setting out to just weld the shaft directly to the spinning base plate. I’ll let you know how it goes!

Here’s me and Ladyada after I put on my matador costume yesterday.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
