Magic-1 and self balancing scooter at Penang Mini Maker Faire 2014

I was glad to be part of the event as it was the first ever Maker Faire organized in Malaysia. It was organized together as part of Penang International Science Fair 2014.

The Magic-1 clone was there but the com port was not connected to a computer to monitor the output. Some visitors who understand the purpose of the machine appreciated what it is. Those who doesn’t was mesmerized by the blinking lights.

Both the balancing scooters were there, while the one with the handle (mki) become the testing platform for visitors, the one with wireless steering control (mkiii) awes more, some do get to try it though.

It was a fun filled event and made possible with the help of my two friends, thanks! Not all who enquired get the try the scooters though due to safety concern. We enjoyed the event and hoping to see more next time #pmmf14

The touring bike Raleigh Duo

The bike was sold as a fixie/SS for RM300. It was bought because I have the SRAM automatix hub but nowhere to put it, so a wheel was laced and the bike becomes a two-speed tourer. Pictures below was taken after my trip to Betong.

Since these pictures were taken, I’ve cycled from Penang to Melaka in three days and added Ortlieb bottle cage to the panniers.
