Winners Are Grinners! aka WAG

Makers have been around for thousands of years and have made lots of cool stuff.

One thing I love doing is meeting Makers and seeing what they’re up to.

The best place to meet thousands of Makers is at the Adelaide Maker Faire which is the biggest Maker Faire in the Southern hemisphere.

If you watched my recap video from last year’s faire, then you’ll know just how big it is.

This year I’ll be heading down South again with double the camera crew, which means double the footage and double the excitement.

So, to celebrate yet another Maker Faire, Jasmine, (the top dog of Tindie), has donated prizes from three Ozzie Tindie stores.

What do you have to do to win one of these three excellent prizes?

Simple, just send an email to with a subject line AMF2017 telling me which prize you’d like and what you want to use it for and I’ll get Jasmine to select the correct winning entry for each of them.

You can also enter by posting to Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #MickMakeWAG and the prize and what you want to do with it.

Full competition details are below so check that out.

and if you’re going to the Faire yourself, don’t forget to keep a look out for me. Would love to hear about what you’ve been making!

The prizes


A smart ranging sensor using the VL53LoX with on-board ATmega328PB in a tiny package. Nice!


A 9DOF IMU built around the BMP180 and LSM9DSO designed to work with a Raspberry Pi.

Water Me Bird

A great DIY soldering kit that’ll let you know if your plants need watering.
