Going to Interactivism

 

 

 

My idea was selected and I will be attending the Interactivsm event in London this weekend!

Google and FutureGov have launched a rapid fire call for ideas to make the web accessible for older generations. The top ideas will take part in a two day open source hack weekend in June which will bring together the best student developers, Googlers, designers and other social innovators to hack a better web that overcomes the barriers that stand in the way of older people accessing the web.

SULSA Flies!

We designed and built the Southampton University Laser Sintered Aircraft (SULSA) specially for an upcoming New Scientist publication.  Printed (by 3T)  in just three pieces and assembled without any nuts, bolts, screws or cable ties it is a testimony to what can be achieved with rapid prototyping today.  It is our smallest and most nimble aircraft yet and flew beautifully.

Looking forward to the article.
