Maker Faire

It's that wonderful time of year when you can see your breath in the air while you wait at the bus stop. Frost decorates the blades of grass, motorists spend five minutes scraping ice off the windshield  before departing and there are hints of snow when you look up at the hills. So what's a better way of coping with the change of season than by heading down to Texas, where it's twice as warm and there's nothing but sun in the forecast? That's right - this weekend we're at the 2008 Austin, Texas Maker Faire!

From the official site:

Maker Faire is a two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It's for creative, resourceful people of all ages and backgrounds who like to tinker and love to make things. So much to see, you will need 2 days to see it all!

Come look for Dave or Cheryl, who'll be helping out those fine Maker folks in their store. You'll be able to pick up a few of our kits in person and even get a sneak-peak at what we're working on for the upcoming holiday season.

Drop by and check it out - there'll be tons of exhibits,  eclectic projects, activities and more! It'll take place October 18 & 19 at the Travis County Expo Center - you can go to www.makerfaire.com for more info.

And don't worry - some of us are privileged enough to stay behind with the bare trees, grey clouds and nippy wind, so business will go on as usual at Solarbotics HQ.

Well, we survived the battlefield of 2014 Calgary Entertainment Expo with no human, animal or machinery losses (although with an apparent vocabulary shift towards geekery). In any case, running a double booth was a lot of fun and a lot of work, which makes it satisfying and tiring at the same time. And educating: we've […]
