Headed Out? Don’t Forget Your Maker Bag!

Rio Akasaka sent me a photo of his Maker/Hacker Bag, the travel-size companion he takes to all the different hackathons he attends. Genius!

Do you have a Maker bag like this? What’s in it?

  1. As a university student, I spend a lot of time travelling and going to robotics competitions and this kind of thing always comes up.

    Normally a week before we travel I make a list of every tool I touch so I can throw them all in a box. I’ve been meaning to make a more permanent set of portable tools.

    I did this a while back for my RC gear, was very quick with a laser cutter:

    I hope to buy a few mezzi XXT cases off ebay and do the same for my entire set of tools.

    I’ve found the biggest PITA when hacking on the go is finding wall power. It isn’t practical to have a full set of cordless tools so I’ve been thinking about gluing a large LiFe to an Inverter.

  2. Mine has soldering iron, solder, solder wick, etc, and ~300 LEDs, few hundred various resistors, couple arduinos, ac adaptor, power jacks, usb to serial adaptor, avrasp, and an assortment of buttons. Basically a good assortment of the basics.
