With kind permission from the trustees and generous assistance from Ian Dickinson, I would love to come to Nottingham and put on a workshop making my Strandbeest walking robots.

The kit contains everything you need to build a wind powered strandbeest walker, with additional components to motorise the design and control it from your mobile device. The kit generally takes about 2 hours to assemble but if you're already competent at soldering that will easily be less. The boards come pre programmed but I'm happy to stay after and help people set up their arduino environment if they want to play with the software.

The date is provisionally set for the 24th of February at 10am, the price will be £25. Booking is not essential but I need positive confirmation from a few attendees to ensure it actually happens. More information about the kit can be found here

The kit itself includes a wemos D1 which uses the ESP8266 so it's a great introduction to that wifi module. It's been a long time since I've been to the space so I look forward to seeing some of you again in February.

Just two weeks to go until this Strandbeest workshop. We've got a few more attendees but there is still lots of space left over if anyone else would like to come along then you're all welcome to.

Is it open to non members? If so could it go on the FB event page to spread the net a bit wider? Can't see it up there at the moment unless I'm being dim.

I'm happy for non members to attend and for this to go on Facebook.

I'll do a tour if any non members are interested in joining.
