Barribot – Part of a KickStarter Project

Wed, 3 Sep 2014

KickStarter is an intriguing idea. Present your idea for a product or service on the Kickstarter website and if you can persuade enough people to support you your idea gets funded. Fall short and your followers aren’t charged and you receive nothing. I’ve supported a few projects on KickStarter some successful and some not. I have also had a few ideas for my own KickStarter projects but so far not taken the plunge. So when Cory from SocketCircuits got in touch to see if I was interested in collaborating I jumped as the chance.

Cory has set up a KickStarter project that is "An electronic circuit construction system that aims to bridge the gap between learning electronics, and inventing electronic products."


My contribution to the project is a modified version of the Paperbot model. Cory has taken this model and added a Barrier Grid Animation and LED illumination to make this delightful Barribot. The display in the chest has been cleverly designed by Cory. Two sheets of printed cellulose film give the effect of an animated four column bar graph. The internal LED illumination makes the whole thing glow.

It’s now over to you. We’ve got twelve days to get Cory up to his goal so that this delightful project will go ahead.
