I'm always excited to see the Young Makers and their projects when they come to the Exploratorium for OpenMAKE. The Viper project first came to the museum back in January of this year as a basic shell and a big idea. This month, it reappeared bigger and better than I could have imagined. I mean this quite literally, since it barely made it through the doors of the Exploratorium (and we have really big doors - 9' wide). It was amazing to see how far the team had come in such a relatively short period of time.
I can't wait to see how it evolves in the next few weeks -- when it reappears down in San Mateo for Maker Faire on May 19th and 20th.
If you're interested in learning more about the Viper Project -
Goli Mohammadi did a great interview with the team about their project and process that shows a lot of the thinking and design decisions they've made along the way.
The team also created a terrific website filled with documentation that takes you through the entire process of building the Viper.
