1.21 Jigawatts “Hunt for the Red September Robotic Submarine Simulator Game” @makerfaire

RedSeptember scaled

One of my favorite moments at Maker Faire today was watching kids at the Red Bull Creation tent racing to save a sinking submarine (or at least a simulation of one) while being dripped and sprayed with above with non-simulated water from the robotic spigots.

The team (three of the four pictured here) thanked Tyler from Adafruit for all of his help pulling this project off!

Check out this post we shared about them back in late July.

From their Red Bull Creation contest pitch:

We are a local Minnesota team of builders with a mix of expertise in technology and art here in the Twin Cities. During the day we work as professionals in engineering and design. In our spare time, we build maniacal creations to inspire imagination and stretch mental know-how.
