Mariel's update- completed tailpipe communicator, off to lakes of fire! No project entered in Makerfaire, would love to help/meet other members getting ready for the event (I am trained/talented in non-metallic areas as well)

Nikki's update- Might have a working design for the coolsuit to be worn under Maker Faire costume. Looking for donations/supplies to bring it to life. Putting the motorized stool on hold until the part that has to do with safety is complete. Blacktop + dress made of emergency blanket is serious. Considering looking in to something like a gofundme that could run through til next years Maker Faire. Any ideas/help appreciated.
