A week ago I attended the Lowell Kinetic Sculpture Race. These were human powered all-terrain art inspired vehicles that raced through the City of Lowell, made their way through the Maddening Mud Pit and then drove their kinetic sculptures into the Merrimack river to see if they could float, stay up right and travel a bit down stream where they got back on land and raced back through the City of Lowell. It was an exciting fun filled show of creativity, ingenuity, tenacity and never giving up.
One of the teams was our friends at Makeit Labs. Their creation was called Fruit Roll-up; this Kinetic Sculpture was powered by a four person peddling team and they managed both the Mud Pit and Water Obstacle very well. Their costumes were also a hit as they entire team sported fruity head gear.
Makeit Labs is a non-profit charity organization and Maker Space in Nashua NH. They will once again participate at NH TechFest, on November 2nd this year, and we can’t wait to see what they will come up with next.
