It was a small fair, but despite the size there was some amazing makers here showing off their creations and the quality of those exhibiting here was really high. Even if I’d had all day, and I did, I couldn’t have seen half the the exhibits here at the Faire. It was also well attended—with over 1,000 school pupils and their teachers from around the region coming to the fair yesterday for Education Day, and just short of 1,500 general attendees coming to the fair today.
I did manage to talk to some of the makers here:
- The Solar Boat Challenge entries from a local high school
- The Open Source House
- The launch of the new WeIO microcontroller board
- The self-sufficient Île du Guesclin
- The Gatewing X100 mapping UAV
and of course, managed to watch some UAVs slightly closer to home.
