Meet the Maker: The TIM Project

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!

The TIM Project1) Who are you and where do you come from?

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:

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!

Discounted advance tickets for Brighton Mini Maker Faire 2014 are now available!
