Yet another successful day showing off our Spikerboxes and this time with the addition of some Arduinos. It is much more interesting building your own Arduino though, so in the spirit of Shrimping.it (the makers of Morecambe) I made some self-build core kits available. Both the Spikerboxes and Arduinos attrackted a great deal of attention. I took my Pi2Go Lite robot, driven by a Raspberry Pi along, but it wasn’t quite ready to run, so I could just tell people about it and what it is supposed to do. Even so, there was a lot of interest and excitement about the possibilities. By the end of the day my feet were killing and if it wasn’t for the help of my two minions, Stuart and Ben, I would have been totally dead. As you can see from the pictures below, the minimum requirements for my minions is a height of over 6’2″.
