2015/05/16 Another Maker Faire
π 2015-05-16 00:00 in Public
Mmmh, I didn't read my own blog post from 2 years ago saying that going both days was overkill and unnecessary. I stretched the time by going to some talks Saturday and Sunday, and that was kind of a mistake as more than half the talks were not worth the time at all, and some were a total waste of time. Maker Faire really needs to improve their talks by giving full description, vetting speakers, and ensuring proper content, or people will know that talks are mostly not worth it.

But the rest was still worth seeing, and I enjoyed it. Big stuff outdoors:

Indoors:

very cool, you can now draw circuits with a silver pen

They had a battle of the drones which really was quadcopter fighting (knocking the other guy out of the air):


One worthwhile talk was a status update on arduino, from its creator:


another talk from Atmel on arduino debugwire was very interesting too

Google was showing off its original VTOL package delivery plane:

Anyway, I was mostly done by saturday evening. I went back sunday to see a few things I could have seen if I hadn't gone to some talks Saturday, and then called it a day.
