Our pals as CalCars.org are going to hack up Prius at the Maker Faire! – “Over two days, CalCars engineers, along with a cadre of volunteers, will build and install a battery pack and make hardware and software adjustments to the stock Toyota Prius. The finished “PRIUS+” will drive back to Seattle, Washington after the Faire with a 10-mile low-speed all-electric range in addition to its regular hybrid extended range.”Link.

Join the creators of MAKE magazine, the MythBusters, and thousands of tech DIY enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, science clubs, students, and authors at MAKE’s first ever Maker Faire!

Meet all kinds of people who make amazing things in garages, basements, and backyards for inspiration, know-how, and spirited mischief-making. An incredible learning experience for the entire family, students of all ages and their teachers are welcome.
