Maker Faire Queens NY
It is a big dorky geeky fair of people who make things and tinker and anything along those lines.
Checkout the work that went into these toothpick sculptures.
We managed to get there pretty early which was a good thing because people are showing up like crazy and it quickly gets crowded.
It was a little repetitive here as each one had basically all printed out the same 3 or 4 example pieces although it was cool to see the machines printing things layer by layer.
There were also a lot of CNC machines which could cut elaborate things out of wood or plastic to make things.
You could also buy a lot of good electronics and sensors and components for making things like robots or whatever you might think of.
There was also a giant mentos and coke demonstration which we didn't stay for.
It was a fun show, I am inspired to come up with some kind of project to build.
