The make fest was a hoot, a holler, and a half! European makers converged on the Hotel Le Plaza in Brussels and showed their stuff to a super positive audience.
It didn’t hurt that Zimki lubricated the event with drinks. I hearby nominate Belgian beer as the best beer ever! James and Katrien of Zimki helped me find a hardware store, set up my drawbot and performed some last minute programming kung fu.
Paul Granjon brought some hand made electric instruments and his robot-vision glasses which effectively replicate the way robots see using transducers and other location techniques.
Fabienne was rocking it with a bunch of hardware hacks.
Johan Van den Brande makes teeny tiny robots and flying machines.
Rene Grau brought the ultimate PC mod, the PC espresso machine!
Ian Lesnet does really cool open source stuff including,
and some nixie tubes using my boost converter posted to instructables.com
Here’s my flickr set of the event that desperately needs tagging with relevant info.
