CONNECTION, INSPIRATION and FUN
I believe in making beautiful projects that inspire people to create and connect with others in fun ways.
LITTLE WATER IF YOU MAY
The WaterMeBird was originally created to help my partner remember to water her plants. Only thing is that it needed to not represent a smoke alarm (BEEP BEEP BEEEEEEP).
OUR CHILDREN WILL BE BOTH BEAUTIFUL AND SMART
Meet WaterMeBird: Using her feet she senses when the soil is dry then tweets a unique song to let you know. WaterMeBird has found her place as a Learn to solder kit. Hundreds of kids, parents and teachers have made the kit together, learning about electronics and how technology can help connect us to the environment.
CONNECTED TO LAND AND LEARNING
The Water Me Bird is modeled after the Willy Wag Tail. This bird features in Australian Aborigional stories and represents a connection to the land. The story is that if you see the Wag Tail you know that the land is doing well. Thank you to Destiny Paris at the University of Wollongong for working with me to bring this story to life and then to share it with hundreds of students as part of the university's STEM outreach program.
EVERYTHING YOU NEEDZ
Included is a step by step video series to keep you flying straight as well as full on engineering documentation for those who want to know about all the things. Video Series on kit construction Instructables - Open Source
To all the people that have taken the journey with me, THANK YOU. Hundreds of parents, students and teachers on taking up the opportunity to learn soldering, electronics and connect them to the environment. Thank you to Rushanthi for the opportunity to make something for you. Marie on suggesting it would be nicer if it was pretty, a bird perhaps. And Destiny for connecting it with a meaningful story and ultimately for it being a Willy Wag Tail.
