A giant robot puppet for Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire

Glasgow based visual artist and maker Fergus Dunnet has created a giant version of the Edinburgh Mini Maker robot which will be stepping out around Summerhall this Sunday for the 2015 Faire.

You can track the puppets progress on Fergus’ blog as he has posted regular updates throughout the robots creation, from creating a prototype to a first look at the big puppet and getting it fully assembled for a test run.

Here are some pictures of the robots first outing at The Meadows earlier today for the Mini Maker Faire press call:
