As part of our “Meet the Makers” interview series, we asked our Makers to tell us a little about themselves. Today, meet Rory from The TIM Project!
Hello, I’m Rory (or George; long story) from Somerset, though I am currently at Reading University.
2) What do you do?
For Brighton Mini Maker Faire I’ll be doing robots and computer architecture, but generally any engineering project that I can!
My display will be TIM8; a fully programmable relay computer that I designed and built just after I finished my GCSEs. I built it to learn about computer architecture, but these days take it to talks and events to help others learn about it.
I also do Robot Wars, so am bringing some of my robots along to play with.
3) Do you have a website?
My website is: http://www.northdownfarm.co.uk/rory/tim/
4) What will you have on your stall?
I’ll be bringing TIM 8, maybe a section of TIMIAC (my not yet finished valve computer) and a load of information posters.
5) Are you running any workshops?
I won’t be running any workshops.
6) Have you been to a Maker Faire before?
I haven’t attended a Maker Faire before. Looking forward to it!
7) Anything else you want to share?
See you all there!
