Maker Faire Coming To Austin This Month

Recommended Posts

Saturday October 18th and Sunday October 19th is the long awaited return of Maker Faire to the Travis County Expo Center in Austin, and it looks like so much fun.


This weekend show is devoted to making things - their website uses the following slogan:

Build, CRAFT, hack, play, MAKE.


• Robots • Rockets • Bicycles • Alternative Energy Devices • Electronics • Crafts

• Circuit Boards • Sustainable Food • Musical Instruments • Wood Working

• Knitting • Eco Modding Cars • Kites • Special Effects • Sewing • and more...

DIY Makers, progressive techies, old-fashioned and indie crafters, mad scientists, quirky musicians and many more gather to celebrate the maker movement.

Visit their website at http://www.makerfaire.com/

Now if you cannot go, for whatever reason - they have a great companion devoted to making things at : http://blog.makezine.com/

Some of my favorites are - Zombie Sits Up and Takes Notice - http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/10/z..._and_takes.html and the Sashimi Tabernacle Choir http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/10/m...tin_sashim.html
