Long Furby
Project Link | 11/13/22

Inspired by the internet phenomenon of a "long furby," a Furby toy that has had its neck extended, I created a long furby of my own on wheels for a hackathon project at Hack UMass X. This being my first hackathon, I wanted to work with my hands and create something material.

This project ended up winning "Best Mechanical Hack" due to including a mechanical aspect (the car) and utilizing a sewing machine to hand-create the furby from scratch, something that no other group did.
