Roborigami at Bristol Mini Maker Faire

Roborigami, an installation I work on involving giant origami foxes and hidden robotic elements, was featured as part of Bristol Mini Maker Faire in the foyer of Birstol's most recent museum, the M shed.

Maker Faires are a worldwide series of events associated with the 'maker movement', who are people who make things. This is championed by Make magazine, who prominantly featured Roborigami in a write up of the event.

As the focus of the event was on making we decided that we would create the installation 'live', so attendees could watch the process of cutting, folding and adding electronics to the origami foxes. By the end of the day we had 10 foxes, as shown in this video.

These new foxes are made of plastic, rather than card, making them water resistant. Here's a couple of photos from the event.

We've also started making our own stickers to give out to interested people. Much more fun than a business card :-)
