Wall-E the Edinburgh mini Maker Faire

Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire BannerThis post is coming to you live from the Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire—returning to Edinburgh for the second time—being held at the Summerhall here this weekend as part of the Edinburgh International Science Festival.


Dale Wood—a maker from Zimbabwe that now lives here in Scotland—has built a life-sized replica of Disney’s WALL-E robot. It’s one of the stand out projects here at the Edinburgh mini Maker Faire, because after all it’s hard to miss a huge yellow cube-shaped robot to moves and talks.

I talked to Dale about WALL-E and how he intends to push the build forward, and it sounds like next year WALL-E will be following him around the faire.
