Great fun was had at last nights Maker Night in the ADA. This months pitches included an ambitious journey into space, an inflatable blimp and using DIY electronics kit Arduino for anything and everything. This month we had some visitors from FACT, who were working on some personal projects, using a traditional telephone to record peoples thoughts and memories for an upcoming exhibition as well as Martin from Uniform who came to do some mingling. Maker Night pioneer, Adrian, who had just returned from Maker Faire, was on hand for any new attendees, showing them the wonders of Arduino creations.
The Cupcake Makerbot made some great advances, with hopes to get this guerrilla 3D printer up and running before too long! We had our first visitor from Cambridge; software whizz, Alistair who helped assemble the Makerbot and offered some advice on creating a laser cutting file screening software for the ADA.
We are keen to attract more designers and artists to the event, so spread the word!
Next Maker night will be in April. Watch this space!
