2015-05-23 (Sa) Minne-Faire

This weekend is Minne-Faire at Twin Cities Maker. Minne-Faire is a chance for local geeks to come out and see what other local geeks spend their time on. Robot geeks were there, STEM education geeks were there, ballistics geeks were there, artist geeks were there and some Arduino geeks sat next to the Transhumanist table I was helping at.

For the event I got to show off my Haptic Distance Sensor and Cyborg Distance Sensor. These assistive devices could someday help vision-impaired people regain mobility. In the meantime they're a way to give enthusiasts SONAR vision.

Also on display was a copy of the e-Nable Raptor Reloaded. This mechanical hand is a 3D printed hand meant to give functionality back to people who do not have fingers but have a working wrist.

The event was a good way to talk to people and tell them about what Twin Cities Plus will be doing in the future. TC+ is a 501(c)3 charity.

 Sorry, I don't have model releases for anyone in these shots
