Arm Cast Laser

Chelsea broke her arm so of course we needed to wire up the cast with a laser! The little wire hanging off the side is for charging although it held it’s charge for the entire time she had the cast on.

Bird Box - Seattle Maker Faire 2014

We were welcomed back to the 2014 Seattle Mini Maker Faire at the Experience Music Project. We used the Bird Box from the grocery strike, created custom graphics for the show, and had a prominent location in the lobby at the information booth.

Aha! A Bright Idea

Katie and I entered the Mighty Tieton Chandelier Festival and we won! Our entry was a 24 inch tall light bulb, modeled in Rhino, and laser cut from dulcote. There is a motion sensor facing downwards that triggers the light when someone walks underneath. We call it Aha! A Bright Idea!

Bird Box - Grocery Strike

In the fall of 2013, grocery workers threatened a strike. It is required by law that they give 72 hours notice and they staged a 3-day count-down in Westlake Center. With 2 days notice, Andrew, Katie and I were able to put together a weather proof Bird Box, custom graphics, and a live webcam. The strike was averted as both sides negotiated a deal while they continuously watched the live images from our camera and the twitter stream we promoted.

Bird Box - Greendrinks

For their 10th anniversary, Seattle Greendrinks commissioned us to create another Bird Box with the “simple” requirement that it was portable. Their event moves around and they generally use a SmartCar from Car2Go. Andrew and I worked our magic and fit the entire device in an antique suitcase complete with Edison bulb sconces, mechanical bell, LCD screen, and vintage charm.

Bird Box - Seattle Maker Faire 2013

For the 2013 Seattle Maker Faire we repurposed the Smash Putt Bird Box, changed up the slides and created a custom mounting stand. We were not allowed to touch the walls at The Seattle Center so the entire installation needed to be freestanding.
