Derby Mini Maker Faire 2017 Photodump!

So travelled down to Derby yesterday to see the Mini Maker Faire... mainly becasue it is an ace proper maker faire and also the venue is closing for a couple of years for a large refurbishment project so its the last one for a while! Had a fabulous time and saw loads of amazing people and things!

So many cool robots in the place!

Me and the fabulous KonichiwaKitty... :)

Fascinating bit of machining this... a WWII bomb made by Qualcast ... yep thats right Qualcast the lawnmower company, this is one of the many objects being digitised into an archive of models at Derby Silk Mill museum.

 Singing TESLA COILS.... So utterly brilliant... working out how we can get  aload of these into a space in NWales!
 Derby Silk Mill makerspace has this MASSIVE cnc... it must be able to take 3 8x4 sheets... tis a beautiful monster!
