Made in Me makes Top 50 Mobile Innovators list by James Huggins

Mobile Entertainment (ME) reports on all the latest news from the mobile content industry and every year they source and pick what they believe to be the most cutting-edge and contemporary names in the UK mobile space. This year we made the list! With the likes of Zeebox and Shazam amongst the others to be chosen it's fair to say we're all pretty bowled over by the news.

It's a SIGN!!! by Will

As Chief Builder I was asked to create "ME" marquee lettering for our meeting room. It took a while as I had to fit it around my day job working on Me Books, but I got there in the end, and I don't mind saying folk seem rather pleased with the results. 

Here is the build in pics:

Cut letter shapes from foamboard and mount them on a wooden frame. Cut side panels from thick card (I backed them with green paper. Green's kind of our colour).

Design circuit. (I didn't actually go with this one, in the end I wired each bulb in parallel).

Wire bulbs in parallel to avoid a 'one goes they all go' Griswold's Christmas moment.

Mount letter shapes to a wooden frame and loosely fit everything together to check it all fits.

With batteries, test, test...

...and test again.

Wire into power source (in this case a 9V inverter plugged into the mains) and... It's alive... ALIVE!!!

Stick it all together. Use of Peppa Pig books optional.

Mount on wall, wire up to power source with some nice white flex and that's the Badger!!!
