I'm Samuel Bernier, known as Patenteux du Nord. I'm an industrial designer, a maker, a farmer, a traveler and a hard worker. I spent the last three weeks at Instructables as an "artist in residence". (I love this title). This pretty much means that I have access to all the tools, knowledge, materials and benefits the big yellow robot has in it's belly. 82 2nd street San Francisco is the adress of DIY heaven and here is my story :


Step 1: February 16th 2012

It took me 14 hours to get from Montreal to San Francisco, thanks to United Airlines, so I was a little bit jet-lagged when I got to Instructables. You wouldn't believe what I found behind this door...
THanks Sam this was fun to read and learn about your experiences there. It sounds like an incredible and unforgettable experience! :)
Amazing video.. Im sad I am not in it! wahhh. :P It was awesome to have you in the lab, and I look forward to seeing what you continue to make, and hopefully you won't be a stranger, and make it back soon!<br /><br />Angie

He definitely has not!<br /><br />And all anybody needs to know is that the people above are awesome. :D Well, okay, maybe names would be nice.
Looks like a great time.
