Maker Faire UK 2017 (Sat/Sun 1st & 2nd April)

Mon Mar 27, 2017 12:52 pm

Hi All

It's Maker Faire UK at Newcastle this weekend, 1st & 2nd April

http://www.makerfaireuk.com/

There's usually lots of Pi related stuff and lots of other cool making stuff going on and a great opportunity to chat with the makers from other hack/fab labs.


Is anyone else going? If you are then I'll probably see you at the Maker Space stand where I'll be.

Sorry I missed you there!

I've finished up the film of our new installation, The Heart of Maker Faire, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er-b1X5HWGI. It's a display of jars on shelves, each one lit to beat at the heart rate of the person who left it - so visitors left a little of themselves behind. There's the beginnings of a write-up here: https://nustem.uk/heartofmakerfaire/. The piece was entirely Pi-based, from a Zero W as network access point, MQTT and MySQL server, to Pi 3s running the control boxes, to more Pi 3s driving the lighting animation (via Processing and FadeCandy boards).
