Show-and-tell is not just for grade school: it's a good way for members to share what they're thinking about and working on outside of meetings, and the simplest question/answer pair can be both instructional and inspirational.
Here is some of what was brought last week:
|Doug's Yellow Submarine, made from a painted soda bottle, 3D printed additions, & hand drawn designs|
|Leo's gloves with carbon fiber knuckles, brought to show us what the material is like|
|Dave's r/c-controlled wheelchair base|
|The Campiz family's surplus computer, ready to be disassembled|
the gyroscope Bob got through Kickstarter
Finally, Doug talked us through some design considerations when creating the cupcake car base: sizing it to fit a seated person, making sure the wheels are well spaced for comfort and maneuverability, keeping the parts accessible for adjustment and repair. Getting that started is our next shared task.
