Meet The Makers – Lorraine Underwood

Lorraine UnderwoodWe’re back with another great interview. That’s right it’s season 2 episode 4 of Radio MakeFest and this time I talked with Lorraine Underwood about the many great projects she’s built and how she originally got into making.
 
For Liverpool MakeFest this year Lorraine will be bringing Cubert, a 1 metre LED cube she built which can not only be used as a display, but also play games such as Snake and Pac-Man thanks to it’s Micro:Bit controller. I can’t wait to give that a go.

Not to be confused with 80s arcade game character Q*Bert, who was something quite different.

During the interview we also discussed one of Lorraine’s latest projects which are these fantastic light up wings for an angel costume. Check out the video below.
