HacKidemia | let's all make CLEVER BIRD Blinkies

Our CLEVER BIRD Blinkie sets thrilled kids at the Tampines Learning Festival yesterday, thanks to maker mentors William Hooi (HacKidemia) and Rohaimi Mohd (Tech the robo-graffiti artist).

This event was held at the open field next to Tampines MRT station. William managed to present the Guest of Honour Mr. Heng Swee Keat (Education Minister) with a copy of Diary of Young Justice Bao. We hope he enjoys reading about the Case of the Grand Fish! :-)

The kids were especially excited to work with Rohaimi (top photo), who is known throughout the local maker community for his ingenious autonomous robot graffiti machines. He developed his street art skills as part of the graffiti duo Spraytwogeorge (with his older brother), and found a way to merge spray paint magic with electronic hacking. You can read more about his work at the Singapore Makers website.

The HacKidemia team will be in action next at the Science Street Fair this weekend. They'll also be helping out at the Game Expo East Kent (G.E.E.K.) booth. Do join them for some creative DIY fun!
