The Bee Box is proceeding apace!
The body is done.
The mobile HIVE 13 logo frame is welded.
Next steps are
1.) make the logo
a.) laser cut a lexan® hex and engrave a “V”
b.) 3D print a hex with an “H”
c.) CNC mill the 2 double hexes I/1 & E/3
2.) design, spec, purchase and assemble the electronics
I’m looking for feedback on
a.) moving the logos (mounted on rods,see the WIKI pix) - stepper motor? (only 1 to move all four rods?)
b.) a sensor ( waggling IR would look cool) to start some activity when someone approaches (maybe start some text scrolling on the LEDs)
c.) an LED display that can scroll text “Bee a Maker, not a drone!” (or something equally pithy )
d.) a tiny wheeled robot (actually I’d like a micro drone, but I doubt that would last even one presentation!), controlled from the box by the visitors
