One of my projects this spring will be constructing a scrolling map of the Apollo mission. I plan to use #legomindstorms to control the experience.

Fixed up my 1984 Armatron. Loved playing with this growing up.

Worked on my old 1984 Armateon robotic arm by Radio Shack tonight on Twitch. One of the solder points had come off. Very cool to see the gear drums and transmission shifts. Makes a racket though. If you want to catch more tinkering in the Space Dock subscribe before my next stream on Monday. http://twitch.tv/drscifi #robot #gear #armatron

Just talked for glorious hours with @cossmithcosplay about his K-2SO costume build. From shoulder joint covers to feet extensions we got into the details of our builds with this shared character. Our K2’s will hopefully get to meet as they became Skype buddies today. Go watch Nick’s progress on instagram. I can’t wait until we chat again. #k2so #starwars #rogueone #droid #k2socosplay #cosplay #craftyourfandom

An @arduino.cc Uno to run the neck servos in K-2SO. The thumb stick will be set up in the right hand control. I should be able to do the articulation with 3 servos. #arduino #droid #k2so #starwars #k2socosplay

The K-2SO finger prototype is a success! Just a few adjustments then setting up the files for the different finger lengths. #k2so #k2socosplay #starwars #rogueone #droid

Two locations I plan on connecting ID10. K-2SO shoulder and the back of my TK Stormtrooper. Time for some magnets! K2 will be a pirate yet.  #starwars #battlefront2 #droid #id10 #k2so

Still need to button him up, paint, glue and magnets. But my ID10 seeker droid is looking great. #id10 #battlefront2 #starwars #droid
