Lisbon Maker Faire 2015

The Lisbon Make Faire 2015 is over. After the hangover of the final push to finish the projects and an awesome weekend I will make a kind of wrapup post.

This year I took a personal project as well as represented our hackerspace - HackAveiro with a interactive Led wall, we even received a Maker of Merit ribbon!!!!!!.

My project was, as you may have guessed, the Hoverboat. To the Faire, I was able to finish the skirt and make it work and hover, however,  I was unable to add brushless motors for the propulsion of to hoverboat because I had some problems programming the ESCs... 

Here is a video for everyone that wanted to know if it worked on water :D

 

Presenting at the Faire was really tiring, even more to my voice, but it was really rewarding. Each time I saw the smile of a kid or grown up when they felt the difference of the hovercrafts skirt runnig and off... for the kids it was like magic :).

In this Maker Faire it  was awesome to meet new people and meet again friends from last year... for instance the eLAB hackerspaceMILLHackerschool IST, and so many more.

During this weekend, I had the help of my mates from Hack'Aveiro - Rodrigo Graça and Francisco Mendes .

I will post more stuff about the hoverboat project soon, 3d files, arduino code, etc.
