Walkalong Glider Meetup in Ottawa a Huge Success

I decided to add a twist and do Walkalong Gliders in my regular pub meetups (instead of the Squirrels) to see what would happen. It was an amazing success!

Ottawa Citizen’s Bruce Deachman covered the project and the design was printed as a cutout on Jan 8th (Web version: Winged wonders: Paper plane meetup lands in Ottawa). The event was also covered by Alan Neal of CBC Radio and Ed Hand of 1310 News.

Makerfaires

Squirrel and the new design projects are going to three Makerfaires in the next short while. I will present the Squirrel to the other makers as well as the general public. If you are in either of these cities it’s a chance to see the Squirrel.

Montreal Makerfaire Aug 25-26 @ 4141 Avenue Pierre-De Coubertin
New York World Makerfaire September 29-30 @ New York Hall of Science
Ottawa Makerfaire, Oct 13-14 @ Shopify, 150 George (last Makerfaire)

The Squirrel project received MakerFaire Editor’s Choice Blue Ribbon in 2011 at the New York World Makerfaire.

CBC “All in a Day” today at 3:10pm

I’ve got all the stuff all boxed up that’s coming with me to CBC today.

I’ve added some experimental Squirrels (large box) which were sent to me by Lloyd Shales (model plane designer). I get a lot of input from other designers these days.

Also a Squirrel that was made by a child during one of my volunteer programs here in Ottawa.

I added a scale as well in case we want to weigh anything. 🙂

Plus the rest of the stuff I mentioned in the previous post.
