Q & A with MakerBeam @ Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories…

MakerBeam is an open-source metal building system. There’s a technology called T-slot (example here) that is widely used for industrial automation, robotics and machine enclosures.

MakerBeam has defined a standard called Mini-T which is a miniature version of T-slot. It’s small enough to work as a model building system, and precise and strong enough to build real machines and robots with it.

They used Kickstarter to fund the project so far ($10k).
