  • Going to MakersFaire UK

    Yes indeed. I am going to MakersFaire UK in Newcastle on March 14th and 15th.

    As well as the prototype of Lunar Lander (hopefully working) I’ll be bringing the Hat Hack and the Honkatron and probably a few more things as well. It’s the first time I’ve taken this stuff to an exhibition targeted at the general public. It’ll be interesting to see the reaction.

    For some reason I’ve been listed in the “craft” section of the programme. I guess the Hat Hack being made of cloth has given a false impression of my work.

    After a successful summer run of Cyclepong I started working on a second arcade machine at the end of 2008. As usual it’s taken far more time than I ever imagined, but finally there is a working prototype!

    After the effort of getting something that works I’ve just taken it all apart to pack and take to Makersfaire UK next weekend in Newcastle. Taking it to pieces I managed to drop one of the circuit boards and break an (unused) bit off! Moving any kind of handmade project is a real trauma. If you are around come along and see if I manage to get it back together and working again!
