Line-us the robotic arm (as seen in MYO)

Presenting Line-us… we were very privileged to have Durrell Bishop and Robert Poll, the brains behind this really exciting new invention, join us at our launch.  Line-us is a small internet-connected robot drawing arm.  It mimics your motion with a pen and recreates whatever you draw on screen.

People, young and old got the chance to have a go and the reaction was fantastic.  It was such a lot of fun, whether you can draw or not, you are able to produce a very nice artwork on a postcard that you could take home!

This technology is still in development, in fact the team used Kickstarter funding to produce their first thousand machines. They were bowled over by the response they got and far exceeded their target in record time.  So head over to their site to find out a bit more and keep up with the developments, it looks set to be a really hot product very soon!

And just so you know Line us drew all our portraits in Volume one of MYO magazine, so have a look at it’s handywork!

The MYO Launch

What an amazing day! On Saturday we had the official launch party for MYO. It took a lot of organising, we pulled out all the stops and it not disappoint! Slovenian puppeteers the Ljubljana Puppet Theatre put on a fabulous show the Goose and the Bear, a really beautiful story acted out by woollen creatures that I designed with them last year.

The stage all set up ready to go… Donna Wilson cushions to sit on.

The show brought each character to life in such an enchanting way, children and adults alike enjoyed this captivating performance!

We were delighted to have a full house of children and families who all had a great time watching the show.

Over the next week or so I will tell you more about the day and share more pics of the amazing workshops. We were so pleased to have so much creativity going on!  Huge thank you to our sponsors Hey! Yum, Noodoll, Pip Organic, Rebel Kitchen. A very special thanks to Ljubljana Puppet Theatre, BKD, The Amazing Art Cart, Rosy Nicholas, Line Us, Protein Studios, Gareth Hacker and the Donna Wilson / MYO team for all your hard work and making this spectacular event such a wonderful afternoon.
