We have been working on projects that all went down really well at Maker Faire this year and will be working on over the coming months to improve as we go along.
One project that I worked on with another member is the Bubble Birdhouse.
It all started with some messing/science trying to make bubbles from washing up liquid and seeing what components are needed for a good bubble. Then trying to replicate what the commercial machines can do but build your own. Once we had this almost cracked we worked to scale up the project as we did for street performers event. We learned that children like to stick fingers into every bubble that comes out of the machine, so we came up with solutions for this.
We put it 6 foot off the ground, this was a really amazing experience to see how children and adults are drawn to bubbles.
Next stage is to take it all apart and redesign it from scratch like every project; rebuild and improve as we go along.
