Primo: finished!

Date: April 14, 2014 Author: Sjoerd Dirk Categories: Primo 4

Primo (Filippo Yacob, Matteo Loglio, Josh Valman and Lucia Rabago Mayer) started a Kickstarter campaign in November 2013 and it was successfully funded (162%!) on December 22, 2013. I really loved the idea and the wooden design (and I have a weakness for everything with the combination “programming” and “(young) children” ). But I didn’t…

Primo day 11 – March 13, 2014

I was reading a blogpost and in it was a link to a GM3-alternative. So I was very annoyed that I didn’t found this earlier, because this one only cost €1,25 a piece. I’ve ordered two of them to see if they are a good replacement for the original SolarBotics GM3′s. When they arrive I…

The strangest thing happened today! The CNY70′s arrived! I thought they would arrive in a couple of weeks, but I have them already. I’m still waiting for my order from Tayda. It’s shipped on the 6th, but I’m afraid they put them in a very slow airplane . *protected*

The wheels arrived today! I ordered yellow ones, but I got red ones. Doesn’t matter, you almost can’t see them in Cubetto. Still waiting for my order from Tayda. Can’t wait to start building. *protected*

Today was AMAZING! I went to FabKlas in The Hague. This is a Fablab inside a secondary school! It was great to see all the children working on their own project. It’s not really a class/course, it’s more a space where children can invent/make/learn. They have a 3D-printer, a laser cutter, computers, soldering stations, etc. And…

Primo day 7 – March 6, 2014

Date: March 6, 2014 Author: Sjoerd Dirk Categories: Primo 2

This afternoon I received two emails that Alpha-crucis.com refunded part of my order. It looks like they forgot to send me the wheels and just refunded those. But… now I have to reorder them elsewhere and have extra shipping costs! Total -/- € 7,52. So I’m angry My order from Ciseco arrived today! And also…
