ToyBrain at Cambridge Mini Maker Faire

Abe Shultz and I met at the Rhode Island Mini Maker Faire in 2010. I was impressed at the cleverness and creativity of his work. The wandering band of zombies who passed through that evening also enjoyed his projects.

Describing his work to be presented at this year’s Cambridge Mini Maker Faire, Abe writes:

My main project is a microcontroller and motor driver board that is intended to replace the original control hardware of simple children’s toys. This allows them to be converted to simple autonomous robots.

I also have some UV LED strobes, high-power LED drivers and LED art, a brainwave-entrainment dome, and other random things from my lab.

You can follow the ToyBrain project and other work on Gizmosmith.

Admission to the Cambridge Mini Maker Faire is free. Come join us to meet great people and see amazing projects from noon to 4pm on Friday, April 20th at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School.  The CMMF is sponsored by Artisan’s Asylum, and is timed to coincide with the Cambridge Science Festival Carnival.

Getting there: The Cambridge Mini Maker Faire is held at 449 Broadway, site of the main branch of the Cambridge Public Library, and Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School. The Cambridge Science Festival site has a map of the area with details on other events at the Carnival. Limited parking is available beneath the Cambridge Public Library, and under the tennis courts on Ellery Street.
