Maker Faire = Awesome

I spent a super exciting two long days at the Bay Area Maker Faire, seeing all the crazy creativity on display, hanging out with old friends, and generally having an awesome time. I'm not even going to make an attempt at saying all the awesome things I saw, but here's a few samples: tons of eTextile stuff, an awesome booth doing epoxy casting art (kind of like what I do with Heart Spark), the popsicle-stick San Francisco guy, an awesome sand artist, super cool lego aircraft carrier, a nixie tube pendant necklace, fully functional R2D2 droids, a Chevy Volt (that I got to take a test-drive in!), so many maker bots and RepRaps (including the most gigantic RepRap I've ever seen), the Lasersaur open source laser cutter project, feltronics felt circuit stuff, a wheel chair mount for scratching (like with vinyl records), clocks made from old 3.5" hard drives, a super high resolution white POV system capable of near-television quality pictures, and the huge Colossus rig holding massive bolders for kids to pull :-). Check out my 315 pictures: Bay Area Maker Faire 2011
