I’m working on a project for Make Volume 35 which — spoiler alert — helps you make molds of your choice and use that to cook Patti-Goop in a self-made oven. I had made some mustaches as a test, and the other night at the Raspberry Pi Meetup, some people were playing with them and put them on a 3D printed Makey the Robot. Therein, Makio was born.

This realization lit a fire, and we began creating tons of Mario-themed Patti-Goop molds to have an amazing photo shoot, including the image you see above.
