NYC Makers at Internet Week and RoboGames in the Bay
On June 5th in NYC, we hosted "An Evening at Maker Faire" as part of Internet Week New York, now in progress. From their site:
"Internet Week New York is a week-long festival of events saluting New York's thriving Internet industry and the many talented companies, organizations and innovators creating the future of online media."
Produced by MAKE and CRAFT magazines, and sponsored by Saatchi & Saatchi, An Evening at Maker Faire brought together dozens of NY Makers to exhibit their creative projects for one fun and festive evening. On display were cutting-edge DIY projects based around robotics, electronics, new music, alternative crafts, and interactive art.

In the Bay Area (CA) June 13th to the 15th? Like all the robots at Maker Faire? You'll love RoboGames! Taking place June 13-15 at Ft. Mason in San Francisco, 500+ robots come from 20+ countries to compete in the world's biggest robot competition. Androids, art bots, 340-pound combat bots like at Maker Faire, and even robots just for kids! MAKE is a sponsor so please take some photos and put them in our MAKE Flickr photo pool!

Last night at the Saatchi & Saatchi Gallery we held an event called "An Evening at Maker Faire" which brought together dozens of NY makers to exhibit their creative projects for one fun and festive evening. On display were be cutting-edge DIY projects based around robotics, electronics, new music, alternative crafts, and interactive art. The editors of Make and Craft Magazine were joined by the Institute for the Future, who presented their map of the Future of Making, and their forecasts about the impact of "Making" on our daily lives.
Special thanks to everyone who attended, the makers who brought their projects and the city of New York! (Yes, we're exploring a Maker Faire NYC by popular demand!)
Here is some coverage from around the web and some video/photos from us too!
Collin actually did this for 3 hours straight, a new record!
