It is build day #3 on our MakerBot. My daughter puts together the boxy body without a hitch while I fuss with drilling holes and mounting most of the electronics. This video shows where I chose to mount everything to provide access to the SD card slot. I think it will work rather well.
In a world increasingly concerned with questions of energy production and raw material shortages, this project explores the potential of desert manufacturing, where energy and material occur in abundance.
In this experiment sunlight and sand are used as raw energy and material to produce glass objects using a 3D printing process, that combines natural energy and material with high-tech production technology.
Solar-sintering aims to raise questions about the future of manufacturing and trigger dreams of the full utilisation of the production potential of the worldâ€™s most efficient energy resource - the sun. Whilst not providing definitive answers this experiment aims to provide a point of departure for fresh thinking.
This project was developed at the Royal College of Art during my MA studies in Design Products on Platform 13.
Hugh Blemings and Jon Oxer talk about their new book Practical Arduino. We discuss Arduino, what they're doing in Wellington, their motivations for writing the book and the possibility of a second edition. http://www.littlebirdelectronics.com/practical-arduino
