Each year on April Fools Day we like to propose a new Maker vehicle – from planes, to tanks, to boats we’ve imagined different mobile makerspaces.
This year we proposed the MakerBike – a pedal powered makerspace using a bicycle and a trailer.
We were struck by how much people on Facebook and Twitter loved the idea of a MakerBike. With this in mind we started looking at different tutorials and ideas for maker-related bike projects. Below you’ll find a short list of great maker bike projects that you could complete in a weekend.
If you built a MakerBike how would you design it. After all we have a couple of old bikes laying around and the summer is coming up – who knows, the MakerBike might eventually become a reality…
