It's been a few weeks since the fantastic World Maker Faire 2010 in New York City, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to look back on the fun of running a booth and the amazing creations we witnessed.
The New York Hall of Science provided the perfect setting for World Maker Faire New York where education is a top priority.
Makers of all ages enjoyed soldering our element14 Drawdio DIY electronics kit giveaway in our booth.
The Drawdio is a pencil that lets you draw music or, in more general sense, turn almost anything into a "theremin"! Originally created by Jay Silver of MIT Media Lab, Limor Fried of Adafruit designed as an excellent DIY kit based on Jay's design.
The Great Hall on the World Faire Grounds is striking - especially when packed with Tesla coils for Maker Faire!
Arc Attack stole the show - Tesla coils do in fact rock!
Our booth neighbors from the Tesla Science Center were crackling & popping with electricity all Faire long.
Booth neighbor Michael Flynn dazzled the Maker Faire visitors with his awe-inspiring ferrofluid magnetoscope.
The real rockets donated from the Space program to the New York Hall of Science towered above the Faire:
Molecular structures hovered over our booth:
Mod wizard Ben Heck dazzled visitors to our booth with a live build of a Xbox 360 portable laptop mod:
A big thanks to all that visited our booth and helped element14 win the Maker Faire “Editor’s Choice” ribbon!
I hope to see everyone again next year, and remember that you can always get hands on with electronics at the element14 Store!
