Prepping for Maker Faire Bay Area

Rss Feed

On May 17th and 18th we're going to be making and playing at Maker Faire - Bay Area in San Mateo! The Faire is open on Saturday from 10am - 8pm and Sunday from 10am - 6pm, and our booth will be chock-full of Rokenbok!

We're going to have a large community build set on top of an awesome Rokenbok table. We'll be working on the community build during both days, and anybody can come and contribute. One of our expert Rokenbokers will be leading the build and providing help for anybody who wants to contribute.

We'll also have a build-your-own catapult area where you can build a catapult step-by-step and then test it out on moving Rokenbok targets. Whoever manages to get the most ROK balls into their target during each round gets a prize!

The Rokenbok targets will be made using our brand new Gear Teeth, allowing us to create an efficient, rotating target system using a single X2 power unit.

If you're a fan of 3D printing, then you're going to love what we have in store! We're going to be demoing our new library of 3D-printable Rokenbok pieces with a couple of 3D printers running throughout the weekend. Soon you'll be able to let you imagination run wild and create your own building pieces for your custom Rokenbok builds!

  

If you're in the area and would like to volunteer or know somebody who would, please contact caitlinb@rokenbok.com. Volunteers get free access to Maker Faire and a free t-shirt as a thank you for helping us out!

And don't forget to keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for coverage throughout the weekend!
