Split Reaction built a giant Mega Claw Game for the World Maker Faire in NYC, wowing the crowd and winning the Editors’ Choice award.

We wanted to wow the crowd and build something awesome, a project that would inspire kids to become makers and engineers. Also it had to be fun to build so of course the best thing to do was to build a 10 x 10ft Mega Claw Game.

A claw game would be challenging since it would have plenty of electrical work, construction and a lot of ideas to present at the fair and for the blog. It would also be tough because we wanted to build it bigger than anything we’ve ever worked on, ten feet by ten feet to be exact.

Even better, they’ve put the design files on Thingiverse so you can make your own. [Via the MakerBot blog]
