Workshop Video #35: Singapore Mini Maker Faire 2012 report

Posted on Thursday, August 16th, 2012 in Maker Faire, Videos by DP

Singapore’s Mini Maker Faire had a bunch of unforgettable projects. Check out improvised instruments, PC-controlled toys, a Twitter controlled blimp, the banana piano, a DIY Aquaponics system, and a sling shot controlled Angry Birds clone.

The Director of the Science Center Singapore shared his motivations for holding a Maker Faire. We also talked to Robot R US, a Singapore distributor of common names like Seeed Studio, SparkFun, Digilent, and DFRobot.

We demoed the Bus Pirate connected to an I2C EEPROM, with the Logic Sniffer visualizing and decoding the signals. Also on display were a couple Sick of Beige cases and the ATX Breakout Board. In between demos we played with the LED matrices we got from Kobe Electronics.

Organizers went above and beyond to get us into the program at the last minute. Thank you so much for your help.

Be sure to also check out our Singapore Global Geek Tour video, with reports on the electronics shops and the Singapore Hackerspace.

In the first shot the lapel microphone popped out of the H1N audio recorder, so it was recorded from a pocket. It’s still better audio than the camera mic, but not as good as the rest of it.
