We’ve heard about Maker Faire before but experiencing it for oneself is a whole different story. It’s a joyous communal celebration of human creativity and ingenuity that can dive deep into robotics and technology but also extend far to theatrical arts.

In our Robotics corner included fellow exhibitors NASA, Sphero, Ponga, UK-based Extreme Fliers, and Open ROV. As Google invested heavily in robotics recently, it’s no wonder we brushed shoulders with one of the company’s founding partner, Larry Page.

Yes he was awesome.

With over 130,000 attendees coming from over 42 countries and 49 states,  Rover sure had a blast at his first time appearance making many new friends and meeting old ones at the 9th annual Maker Faire Bay Area 2014.

If you weren’t able to make it to the event don’t fret. For a limited time we’re offering the instructions and LEGO Digital Designer files to build your very own Rover in exchange for your honest feedback on what you’d like to see in a personal robot on this short single page survey (Update: survey is now closed).  We’d love to hear from you.  Be a part of the growing community that’s excited about building Rover’s next generation!

  1. Is there or will there be another way to receive the instructions and LEGO Digital Design files for the Rover?

  2. Hello Devy and Martin,

    I was trying to register and download the DIY instructions for making rover using the Lego Mindstorms EV3 kit for my son. However, registration inactive.
    Any other means, how I can download the building instructions ?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Hello Anirvan,

      Thank you for joining the DIY community and for your interest in Rover. I just approved your account, feel free to login and download the instructions. We had some spambots sign up, that’s why I needed to put approvals in place.

      Enjoy your project!

      Best Regards,

      Martin
