Steel-Bronze scupture by Bathsheba Grossman seen at the 2006 Maker Faire in San Mateo, California.

Working Meccano models of Charles Babbage's Difference Engines #1 and #2 will be explained and demonstrated. My model of Difference Engine #1 (based on the fragment of Difference Engine #1 which Babbage assembled in 1832) was pictured in the premier issue of Make. Since then I have completed a much more ambitious model of Difference Engine #2 (based on Babbage's original drawings of 1848). Both models are constructed almost entirely from standard Meccano set parts.

 

These machines calculate using the "method of differences", and can tabulate polynomial expressions entirely automatically by simply turning a hand crank.

A huge city of Lego was on display in the Lego room. Several sets of train tracks wove through it. This photo probably shows less than 5% of the whole thing.

They were doing a demo of the next generation of Lego Mindstorm. I told the women from Lego I wanted a Mind Strom Robot that I could program to make other lego sets. All I wanted to was was program it and buy the lego sets. It would do everything else. She did not think that was funny.
