Makers Challenge

Posted by Lee A. Farruga on March 10, 2016 at 8:45 AM

The Steampunk Makers Workshop group on Facebook has put out a challenge to makers and tinkers around the world.

Here are the details from their event page:

 You must build a device in the Steampunk style.

!) It can be portable or stationary, be used as equipment or accessory, either as costume or part of an Airship or Submersible etc;

2) It must have a conceivable function (even if fictional). It cannot be just a box to put something else in. The box is the base of the challenge. It must be converted into something other than just a box.

3) It must feature some sort of box no bigger than roughly the size of a box that would contain a large domestic cutlery set - examples shall be posted

4) The box itself is integral to the design. Examples will be posted of possible projects.

5) No guns, but it can be part of a weapons system.

6) Finally there is a strong encouragement to use recyclables and junk finds within the build.

7) All materials and paints are allowed

Winner is decided upon a 7 day open poll.

9) This challenge has a maximum budget of $20.
