Took a trip today in order to check out the Mini Maker Faire in Kansas City. We saw a wooden submarine called the Argonaut Jr and they even let us crawl inside. They’ve even used it for an actual dive with only one small leak that they patched up with a cotton ball and Gorilla glue.
There were other projects such as a Jacob’s Ladder, Mousebots, Makerbots, Tesla Coils, and much more.
Mom, Dad, and my Uncle were all very quick to offer me up as a target for some target practice. Those marshmallows can hurt you know.
There was a home-built foam cutter that could cut out just about any shape from a sheet of foam. Combine them together and you could come up with some pretty interesting pieces of art.
The Kansas City Space Pirates were in attendance, demonstrating their bot for the future Space Elevator. It’s part of the challenge to build a bot that can be powered by lasers so that it can climb a cable to space. Now if someone can just make a cable that is strong enough to go to space…
Then we had a funnel cake to finish the day.
