Outbreak of bad weather today in Rome. Took the following video outside the makerspace at 4th and Broad.
I backed the FlipBooKit project on Kickstarter.
My kit showed up last week and I had a chance this evening to assemble it. I thought everyone would enjoy seeing it in action.
I bought my daughters two identical swiss army knives for Christmas. To tell them apart, I wanted to mark them in a permanent way. I decided to engrave the plastic with the laser to give it some relief, and then fill in the impression with acrylic paint.
to know people is wisdom,
but to know yourself is enlightenment.
to master people takes force,
but to master yourself takes strength.
to know contentment is wealth,
and to live with strength resolve.
to never leave whatever you are is to abide,
and to die without getting lost-
that is to live on and on.
Lao Tzu (c.604 – 531 B.C.)
OK, who says marketing has to be all about Myfacing and Tweetering on the Interweb these days?
Well, Steve showed up at our make-night last night. He made this AWESOME plinko board for friend-of-the-space SAI Digital to show off a cool inbound marketing technique at the recent Business Expo event here in Rome. Um, they won best of show. No wonder.
I will try to get him to do a write-up on it, but for now, here’s a pic. It’s Arduino-controlled, has these cool clicky-sounding relays for the lights that give it a great carnival feel, and the woodworking looks like it was done at Yankee Workshop.
