This is the first Geo Caches that I have ever made. Created after the Geo Cache info session at the Vancouver Hackspace. I put it in an alley in the downtown east side near the entrance to the Vancouver Hackspace. It got approved on Saturday and has already been found by 4 people! This cache can be found [...]
I recently went on a trip to New York for the World Maker Faire. My plan was to make a bunch of wooden nickles that resembled Geo Coins and put them in several different Geo Caches across New York and Toronto. The problem was that ALL of the caches that I tried to find in New [...]
The past few weeks I have been doing a lot of GeoCaching in and around Vancouver, BC (funvill on Geocaching.org). There are 1000s of Geo Caches with in a 45 min bike ride around Vancouver. I have found about 25 different caches. Most of the caches have only been big enough to house a sheet of paper so you can sign [...]
LEGO 3D Milling Machine – “3D Printer” Amazing, built out of lego.
I created a Gear Heart for a friends birthday on Maker Bot (A 3D printer) at Vancouver Hackspace’s. It took about 8 hrs to print all the different parts. I also created a time-laps video of my printing two of the gears. This is a decent animation showing how the gear system works. It was a [...]
Me and a few friends made some simple sock puppets at Vancouver Hackspace this week. We made them as a test before we try to make more complex Muppets style puppets. I think they turned out really well for our first attempt.
I have mentioned vancouver scavenger hunts before but it was mainly for Vancouver’s parks and I wanted one that is more geared towards Vancouver its self.

You have five pirates, ranked from 5 to 1 in descending order. The top pirate has the right to propose how 100 gold coins should be divided among them. But the others get to vote on his plan, and if fewer than half agree with him, he gets killed. How should he allocate the gold [...]

I need to make a suit like this for burning man
It would be cool to do a story based around this art forum. Where the ink flows as someone does a voice over.
I build the first version of my giant spin art back in may after reading build instructions in Make magazine Volume 25. It work okay but had a few problems. It was direct drive driven and I was worried about burning out the motor. It was scary fast and got unstable as it speeds up. Three days before Maker Faire I decide to [...]
I seen sign posts like this at the San Francisco Maker Faire and Burning man and I wanted to do something similar for Vancouver’s Mini Maker Faire 2011. With the help of a few fantastic friends we where able to make 150 painted signs for 4 different sign posts.

Its getting harder to makes these status updates as I would rather be making something or going outside and enjoying the sunshine and now Appa (A black kitty) won’t let [...]
