On December 4th, 2022, Maker Faire came to Melbourne! This event was huge, with many floors of exhibits across multiple buildings. 5 hours of walking and talking, and I still kept finding new things.
I bumped into a few old friends along the way including Mitch, who was kind enough to give me a detailed explanation of two of his recent projects including a boat autopilot and a yeast growth optimiser.
Another highlight was seeing Samuel’s project to link a typewriter to a GPT chatbot, so you can have a conversation with the typewriter. You type messages to it, and it prints out responses to you. Pretty cool!
My Kayo A4 pick-and-place machines need somewhere to live, so I’m going to build them a nice new cleanroom. But first we need to make a mess.
Construction of the new SuperLab has begun!
