The BSG Viper Project for Maker Faire

The BSG Viper Project for Maker Faire

The DeRose family, and several other maker families, are all pitching in on another amazing project for Maker Faire Bay Area. They’ve done the potato Gatling gun 2009, the Saphira fire-breathing dragon, and Project Varia 2011. This year they’re building a scifi fighter simulator inspired by the Colonial Vipers in Battlestar Galactica.

You can find out more about their project on The Viper project site and on their Kickstarter page.
