[Maker Faire] SRL Maker Faire Prep

The shop is busy again for the upcoming mini-exhibition at the 2nd Makers Faire to be held at the San Mateo Fairgrounds June 19-20 2007.

The latest addition to the SRL family of machines is the new and improved Mr. Satan which will make it's debut appearance next weekend!

Mr. Satan was 3D scanned from the rubber mask from the original 1980s incarnation and milled on Mark's CNC machine. It will be mounted on the Bombloader and attached to a furnace to make the face glow red-hot!

This is behind the Mr. Satan face after Mark had plasma cut the heavy solid steel block from behind it. You can see the layers built up from the 3D model of the head. 21st century sculpting.

Some images:

Mark Pauline hollows out the back of this exremeley heavy 300lb stainless steel block in order to put a furnace behind the Mr. Satan head.

Also new will be this little industrial robot arm that Mark picked up at HMR. Karen Marcelo and Marc Powell are coding it to throw stuff around the SRL booth at the faire and (otherwise make a mess). It can move surprisingly fast. SRL booth babes will have to watch they dont get knocked on the head with it.

Liisa Pine, Amy Jenkins, and Wendi Flybutter are also working on a brand new prop machine called the Unicorn Machine. It is mobile and its behavior will be a surprise!

Other machines we are taking down are the Running Machine, Bombloader, Hovercraft, and the Dual Mule. An interactive touch screen version of last year's Ghostly Scenes of Infernal Desecration will also be on hand, edited by Ian Williamson.
