“Built is starting from scratch. Built is the process. And a method. Built is a decision. And a material. Built is the tools we use. And how we use them. Those who innovate a way past limitations deserve a stage of appreciation during NYCxDesign 2018.”
Built will be on view and open to the public May 11th - 23rd. Hours each day are 11am - 7 pm (Sundays 12 - 6pm).
There are a bunch of great designs and products showing there.
I had some scrap brass and walnut (?) lying around and figured I’d try making a brass headed hammer. I did all of the work on a wood lathe. Brass can be worked with wood turning chisels, kind of amazing.
I can’t believe it took me this long to make an Iron Man Robot Recipe. Two cans, a few milled parts, and a nice powder coat paint job. I might make a couple more of these, probably put some lights inside.
I made the “blocks” that the Raspberry Pi Foundation used for this year’s Maker Faire in New York. Sort of a retro science fair kind of vibe. I had major deja vu making these, as a kid I used to hammer nails into blocks and wire up simple circuits. I’ve come full circle.
