Naomi Wu (A.K.A Sexy Cyborg) has a bunch of photos and a write up of her experience of exhibiting and speaking at Bangkok Mini Maker Faire 2017. Check it out here!
I got invited to exhibit and speak at this years Bangkok Mini Maker Faire. You’ll notice that I’m wearing far more clothing than usual. I’ve been to Thailand a few times and it’s quite a bit more conservative than Shenzhen when it comes to clothing. When here- particularly outside tourist areas, I dress much more modestly than I do at home in Shenzhen.
When the Faire organizers invited me, I mentioned this and they were kind enough to work with me so I could wear something exciting for the event but still appropriate for Thai families. I also left the pentesting version of the Pi-Palette at home as it potentially conflicts with Thai law, and blurred any photos where I was wearing small clothing.
I waited until the last minute to announce I was attending so Dale Dougherty at Make Magazine did not have time to tell the organizers to bar me from exhibiting at the Faire the way he did in Shenzhen.
I’ve never done any sort of expo or even a science fair. So I kind of just went by pictures from the Internet, designed a banner and had some laminated cards with information about my projects printed.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
