Awesome Foundation San Francisco June Fellowship: Robotic Desk Lamps
I was exceptionally chuffed to be the June 2010 recipient of an Awesome Foundation fellowship.
This was for a project that has been on my mind for years, but I needed a simple kick in the pants to get going on it, for which I am grateful to the Awesome Foundation!
I call the project C.A.R.D.L.E, for Completely Awesome Robotic Desk Lamp Experiment. Remember that cool little short from Pixar? Well, yeah, kinda like that but FOR REALZ:
So the above was just a prototype: I shall be building five or six of the wee beasties
Update: I sucessfully built and demonstrated them at the 2011 Maker Faire. See this blog post /blog/2011/Robotic-Desklamps-at-the-Maker-Faire/ for information!
