507986179 9ee14249e4 Blimp rescue at the Maker Faire

One of Jed Berk’s autonomous blimps got scared and hid in the rafters at the Maker Store. Tom Sgouros was helping me run the kit area, and he came up with a great solution involving materials collected around the Faire, including Kaden Harris’ supply of super sticky double sided tape. Jed arrived just as Tom got it down, and blessed the solution, telling us he’d used it many times before.Flickr set

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
