My Robot Marionette at Maker Faire was awarded 3 Editor’s Choice Ribbons!

This was a big surprise; this, plus the feedback I was receiving from passerby who stopped dead in their tracks with gaping maws really made it all worthwhile. I had a lot of “fun” building him, lost enormous amounts of sleep, growled a lot, and gained some really valuable personal insight… probably worth a blog post, actually.

I’ll be showing him off again with some enhancements in December at the Indie Fest at Red Scoot in Austin. Stay tuned.
