LEGO MINDSTORMS at WORLD MAKER FAIRE 2015

Of course Andy also has some MINDSTORMS creations, one of them was a work in progress BayMax but he had some issues with the inflating system so we didn't get to see it in all it's glory however he has a really cool GoPro steady cam that the public really enjoyed seeing. Another great example of MINDSTORMS being used to prototype real life robotic things.

Then we had Justine, a LEGO store employee that came to help us but she impressed us with a fabulous creation, the Music Box, mixing LEGO Themes and MINDSTORMS!
She was also model for Lee Magpili special robotic dress which also caught the attention of Make magazine ;)

Last but not least, a very special guest from Colombia, Carlos Arturo Torres of Umeå Institute of Design came to present his IKO project : a creative prosthetic system designed for children to explore and empower their creativity in a playful, social and friendly way.

Carlos, Kyle, Victor TY a winner from the Are you a LEGO MAKER contest and myself where also part of a discussion panel - Using LEGO as a prototyping tool, under the MAKE ELECTRONIC tent. It’s always fun to share our passion with and audience!

All in all this was an amazing event and thanks to all who helped at the booth we managed to create #MINDSTORMSMAGIC to many of the 95000 guest that came to World Maker Faire 2015.
