This weekend Skippy, Bran and I went to the National Model Engineering and Modelling Exhibition 2015. Somehow we managed to get out without buying all the things. We did take a few photographs though:
This isn’t part of the model engineering exhibition but I really want it!
Not as many photos as you were expecting? I was clearly too busy looking at things to photograph them…
Maker Faire UK is held at the Center for Life in Newcastle. I attended, complete with Skippy and my recent biohacking project, as part of Hackspace Manchester.
Here are some of the things I saw while I was there:
A chocolate 3D printer
(Quickly renamed sexypod)
Giant neo-pixel display
More 3D Printers
Daleks and a Wookie
These laser cut bunnies were everywhere!
DIY CNC Plasma Cutter

When I arrived at HAC:Man this is what I found:
The moral of this story is: if you can possibly avoid it, don’t leave a running 3D printer unattended.
