We saw some of the biggest names and sponsors at the Maker Faire, including Microsoft, Radio Shack, Arduino, SparkFun, and MakerBot More pictures below.
We all know it’s just a matter of time before robots take over the world. Here’s a preview of some of the forms our future overlords might take. More pictures below.
Some of the most eye-catching booths and exhibits from Day 1 including an open source geiger counter, the 3D printer village, the youngest Maker at the Faire, and the glow-in-the-dark room. And, in contrast to the San Mateo Faire earlier this year, we only saw one steampunk booth! More pictures below.
A look at the Dangerous Prototypes booth from Day 1 of Maker Faire. We were happy to share a space with Brian from teho Labs, and to get a visit from SQKYBeaver, one of our bloggers.
Eric Pan (Seeed Studio) and Ian visit the NYC Resistor hacker space in Brooklyn after the Maker Faire on Saturday night. More pictures below.
Today we’re going to New York for the Open Hardware Summit (Thursday, 15th) and Maker Faire (Saturday 17th, Sunday 18th). We’ll check in regularly and provide as much support as we can. Internet will be better than the Maker Faire Bay Area. The blog will have pictures and coverage of all the events, and the […]
This heading may be overly broad, but we found an abundance of impressive things that didn’t seem to fit in the other categories. These students at Melvindale High School (and their advisor, Randy Thomas) won third place in a robotics competition with this ROV they constructed. They plan to continue improving it. They told a story […]
We saw this couch cruising around the Faire all day, but nobody offered us a lift…
It’s hard to overestimate the awesomeness of seeing metal splash around like water. Seeing Chicago Crucible transform small heaps of busted up iron into awesome art by using fire seemed to be a highlight for many. The raw materials, from old radiators and such like, busted apart with sledgehammers, measured out with scientific precision.
Organizers had planned many areas specifically targeted to kids, and they seemed to be having a great time. The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum had a great tent full of interactive exhibits and such for children, old and young. Here’s a musical instrument played by placing the hand within a certain distance range of some proximity […]
OmniCorpDetroit had this high-powered marshmallow cannon on display. I didn’t see whether they had the opportunity to demonstrate it.
Our ace hacker Schazamp hit Maker Faire Detroit this weekend. We’ll be running his reports all day. The Faire was filled with loads of awesome things, and to cover them all would be impossible, but here you can see some of the things that stood out to us. We found many 3D printer designs, and […]

At Maker Faire SF, Jeri Ellsworth demonstrated this project which uses an Analog Devices AD620 instrumentation amplifier to read electrical impulses and show activity on a wearable LED light bulb head gear.
Eric Pan (Seeed Studio) and Ian (me). Facebook free PCB Friday is on the way. Don’t forget to share your current project in the comments or the forum. Here’s a summary of major developments over the last week: We’re back from Maker Faire Single-sided, through-hole USB IR Toy v2 Saleae Logic 16 update USB Infrared […]
Seeed took a group photo with everyone at the booth but I don’t have a copy yet. This is only part of the group: front (L to R) Eric (Seeed Studio founder), Jack (Gadget Factory, Logic Sniffer co-designer), Ian (me); back (L to R) Fan (Seeed store manager), Tully (Seeed project engineer) and Steve (Seeed […]
Opps, it looks like we added the wrong photoset for the day 2 post. Here’s a second try. Here are some of the most popular and/or memorable booths and exhibits of the day, featuring some LED fashion, a Foodies Corner, and some of the most well-known participants. More photos below the fold.
Congratulations to Seeed Studio for receiving an Editor’s Choice ribbon for their booth at this year’s Maker Faire!
We had a great time at this year’s Maker Faire! Here are some parting images of the fun, including some more art, tech, and even a sighting of a popular DP product for sale in the Maker Shed. More photos below the fold.
