Congratulations to the Kansas City Mini Maker Faire team for hosting an excellent Faire! Along with countless happy visitors, I had a great time learning about all of the awesome projects that were being presented, such as a remote-control Nerf gun, soda can crusher, and miniature drum set. The MakerBots were out in force, and the rockets and foam planes were a’flying. You can see the rest of my photos here, and watch a news segment about the event here. I’m ready for next year already!
Did you make it out to the Faire? Be sure to share your photos and memories in the comments! Here are some of my favorites:
A foam cutting machine, that uses a reciprocating needle to punch out patterns quickly with no mess
Kids making security screwdrivers from nails, which can be used to take apart plastic toys
Learning to solder with Mitch Altman and Jimmie Rodgers
And, a wooden submarine!
