September 13, 2021: Gaslight Steampunk & Maker Festival
Each year in San Diego there is a wonderful steampunk and maker festival which is called the Gaslight Steampunk Expo. This year the festival is being held September 30-Oct 3, 2021. I’m pleased to report that not only will I be playing my street organ at the event for a few hours on both Saturday and Sunday. I’ll also be presenting.an Automata presentation. I’m hoping that this presentation will be lively, fun, and action-causing. Sunday morning at 10 a.m. Perhaps I’ll see you there.
On the automata front, I’ve been working Bench Press Message Board #1 I’ve got the biped and mechanisms working the way that I want them.
I recently discovered a program called MeshMixer. It’s a digital sculpting program that will permit me to design components that are more organic (than I am able to design in FreeCAD). The head in the image was downloaded and then modified in MeshMixer. I am pleased with the control that MeshMixer gives me over the process and am looking forward to becoming more proficient with it.
I am so sorry to see that vaccination has become a political debate as opposed to simply the practice of good medicine.I frequently think that Golden Retrievers and Automata are better than humans.
