Welcome ladies and gentlemen, to a special edition Evening News Post! That's right, it's way past the magical closing time here at Solarbotics but some of us are trudging onward. To what end, you wonder? Well, if you've seen that shiny orange promo banner up top you'll know why. MAKER FAIRE! Yup, just like the past few years we're once again gearing up to make the trip to sunny San Fransisco to show off all our wares. If you're in the Bay area, swing by to say hello. You'll also find a BUNCH of cool stuff at the faire - there's no possible way to explain all the awesome things we've seen at past shows. But until the 30th and 31st roll around, we're in gung-ho mode while we prepare. Fair  warning (Bahaha! Awesome pun!) - Solarbotics and HVW Tech will be closed from May 29th to June 1st, so you may want to plan ahead if you foresee an urgent order in your near future. We'll have more details regarding being closed as we get closer to the date.

But what if you're not going to be at Maker Faire? What if you just want more cool stuff instead? Don't worry, we have you covered with a brand spankin' new 2.55" Propellor from GWS. Check out that stats on this bad boy:2.55in Propellor

  • 63mm (2.5") long
  • 19mm (0.75") pitch (how much it theoretically moves forward in a single full revolution)
  • 1mm shaft hole diameter (easily drilled out to suit your motor)

It's online and ready for purchase, you know the drill. And that about wraps it up - have a great weekend everyone!

PDXBot 04 video - it's good!

Ok people, the sales on the PDXBot 04 DVD have been less-than-stellar. I brought them in primarily because I thought other people wanted to see robot competitions that you may not otherwise get to see. Also, a portion of the proceeds go to help the PARTS club in Portland Oregon. If you have a robo-geek […]

Project Monday: Musical Gears

Sometimes we get the opportunity to help out select people who are developing projects for a good cause. One of those things dear to our hearts is inspiring children with science and electronics. So when John Porter came to us looking for a hand to make a musical gear project as part of an exhibit […]

GM17 Accessories and Gears/Pinions/Spurs

If you'll recall correctly, in last week's news post I said something along the lines of "Keep an eye out for new PICAXE bundles in the coming week." But I was quickly bound and gagged by a pack of vicious lawn gnomes (packing lawn gnome-sized guns, no less), preventing me from fulfilling the promise.  So […]

Technology Grad Dresses

I have a daughter. A daughter who likes pretty things, and like most daughters, likes to stand out once in a while. As the President of a local technology-hacking company, and having been involved with more than a handful of technology dresses & costumes in the Calgary area, she thought it would be a good […]
