After class, how do you blow off some steam, sparks, swarf? Over at MIT, they have MITers, a great on-campus hackerspace where students gather to build amazing creations. You can check out some of the more portable physical imaginings at the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire this Saturday, April 24 from noon to 4pm.

As we were preparing for the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire, MITers chimed in with what they expect to bring. Here is a brief listing of some of their projects you can expect to see:

Charles Guan:
RazEr, the hub motor nanoscooter.

Two 30lb combat robots, which will be display-items-only since they’re both dead. Here’s Ãœberclocker Remix and Cold Arbor.

The infamous lolriokart.

Segfault, the formerly analog but now an Arduino sellout Segway.

Noah Vawter
Will be showing some of his Exertion Instruments this weekend. These are musical instruments with built-in expressive electrical generators.

Shane Colton
The BWD Scooter is a two-wheel-drive version of Charles’ hubmotor scooter that doubles as a tow vehicle for lolriokart. He may also bring the DIY Segway.

You can check out these fine projects and their makers at the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire this Saturday, April 24th from 12-4. This Mini Maker Faire is part of the opening events of The Cambridge Science Festival. Look for us under the tent on the tennis courts next to the Cambridge Public Library.
