Dorkpod DIY Open Source Flatpack Vertical Electric Vehicles & Kits

Personalized Goofy Electric Mobility Kit Devices Made by You

Our Kickstarter is live here!

The beDorky series of Do it Yourself kit vehicles can also be purchased fully assembled. As Makerspace operators we are deep into enabling folks of all ages the opportunity to make their own projects. Our goal is to produce kit packs that enable others to experience the assembly process with light hearted by usable products. We do see markets such as event production companies, or trade show exhibitions having the desire for a unit that is show ready. We will accommodate both pathways with these absurd product offerings.

All assembly components are produced at Tinkersmiths Makerspace in Charlottesville Virginia. They have some super awesome CNC routers, mills and additive manufacturing capabilities to knock this stuff out. Most of the kits are produced from finished grade 3/4 porch or maple plywood. A few of the smaller parts may be 1/2" ply. Accessories such as the joy stick mount, wire guides and cup holder can be wood, plastic or non-ferrous metals. We prefer the aluminum for strength. Most of the parts are beveled with a rounded edge for both safety and aesthetics.

If you are interested in purchasing a Dorkboe Kit please look for our Kickstarter in November 2016. Please call Brian Williford at (434) 242-9092 if you need any uniquely designed motorized devices produced.
