Maker Club Visits Citrus Lab (UC Berkeley)

On Friday, October 25, Maker Club had the opportunity to visit the Citrus Labs to see laundry folding robots, cool graduate projects and a mutant elevator. The first thing we did was get in the mutant elevator and go up to the laundry folding robot. It took about 2 minutes for it to get to the point where it had to ask if the corners were right, and they weren't.

After the laundry folding robot Maker Club got into the mutant elevator (it was really big!)


 ... and went down to the basement to tour the Invention Labs. The first thing we did when we got in the room is stand around a table while someone told us about what was there.


After a short talk about what happens in the lab we got to look around for ourselves.
here is a list of the machines used in the lab

More is here...

I have written pretty much all you need to know about our experience at Citrus Labs, but I feel like you should hear what some Maker Club members have to say about it.

"One of the things I love about invention labs and makerspaces, is that age is almost irrelevant.  This is a space that folks of all ages could learn and work together."
