We’ve all been there. You’re at home, relaxing on the hammock, in the shade and the thought occurs to you, I need a nice cool refreshment but I just can’t bring myself around to getting up, going to the fridge, opening up and replenishing vital body fluids. What to do? Now you have the answer, visit a Maker Fair and learn how to build an automated “anything” for yourself using recycled, re-purposed or just plain old garbage to build just about anything you could ever imagine, including an automated beverage “go getter”. There was surprisingly little for sale at this Maker Faire. Most of it was centered around teaching people how you too can build your own devices out of scrapped items. The coordinators said that they cover costs largely though ticket sales and some food vendors. A better day for the family could not be had anywhere i my opinion, highly recommended. There’s a Makers Faire in just about every major city in North America!
This is a great starting point.
