Pancake Bot is Coming to Maker Faire New York

Details: Yes, I've blogged this model before. Now, though, we can announce that you can come see it in action at this year's Maker Faire New York, coming up September 29th and 30th. There's more related news as well - the robot itself has been refined and now features a simpler, zebra-striped design (there's a new page on the builder's web site discussing the changes). Last - but certainly not least - the official Make magazine blog now has an interview with this model's creator. It's great to see a clever design improved upon, and even better to see it reach a broader audience.

Maker Faire NY is also known as "World Maker Faire" - it's intended to be the biggest and best DIY event in the world, which is how it can attract LEGO fans from Norway. Tickets for Maker Faire NY are available online. A few of our friends from New York's LEGO Users Group, I LUG NY, will also be there with a LEGO display. Searching for "LEGO" on the MFNY2012 list of Makers turns up a total of 12 LEGO-related exhibits at this year's event.
