One of our regular creators here at Wavemaker is Kai Longshaw. At only 25, Kai from Hanley is one of our youngest makers and is something of an entrepreneur in the engineering world. Just 12 months ago Kai established his own company, Blueprint Robotics, specialising in designing and building robotic products including robotic arms. Kai’s aim is to make affordable robotic products to program, play and use in everyday life. You can find him at a variety of careers and industry fares across the city and nationwide, introducing others to the real world of robots! When he is not inspiring others, Kai uses the facilities here at Wavemaker. His passion for robotics began whilst studying at Staffordshire University, from which he graduated in 2011 completing a BEng (Hons) Robotic Engineering. Since then he has moved from strength to strength and hasn’t looked back.
Kai is now working with the Wavemaker team to develop and deliver robotics workshops, stay tuned to find out more!
