Workshopshed is going to New York Makers Faire

I’m happy to announce that my project was selected by the judges from Atmel and Element14 to be the winner of the Enchanted Objects Design Contest.

The judges were impressed by the content you produced and how you blended mechanical functionality with the electronics/sensing aspect. What set you apart was how you stayed in the theme of it being “enchanted” with the storyline woven throughout.

That means I’ll be flying over to New York later this year to see the 6th Annual Makers Faire at New York Hall of Science, Queens.

I’ll be taking lots of photos and notes so a full report will be on the site after the trip.

A big thanks again to everyone who supported and helped the project.

    Wow! Well done Andy. That’s really special to be recognised in that way. Hope the trip goes well and good luck. On a separate note, thanks for your feedback on my foray into electronics. I do appreciate it and have so much to learn

    Not least to understand the voltage drop you mention. Still, that’s why I do it, more to learn.

    Look forward to seeing the photo’s and report. Safe journey, Mike.

  2. Thanks Mike, am really looking forward to that. I can recommend Element14.com if you want to discuss electronics with people, they are typically friendly but also knowledgeable. Next time, why not just get a 12v regulator rather than variable one 🙂

      The main drive to the motor is 24v and I want to buy just one charger. I also want the lights, horn etc. to run from the 24v batteries. Would a 12v regulator do that?

      I’m still going to do my 24v to 12v though since it’s now more about learning than solutions but I would like to know about the 12v regulator.

      Many thanks Mike
