Maker Faire is almost upon us — April 22-23 at the San Mateo Fairgrounds in the San Francisco Bay Area. We’re just 9 days away from what is shaping up to be one of the most original and entertaining event of the year — part science fair, part craft fair, part county fair, with a dash of Burning Man for good measure.

For those of you planning to join us, we wanted to give MAKE readers and makezine.com regulars first crack at registering for workshops. We just added a page listing those program events that require registration:

https://makezine.com/faire/program/workshops/limited/

We are absolutely blown away by the people and attractions we’ll have at the Faire: a flying Pterosaur replica, a flock of whale blimps, a giant painting machine, DIY RFID implants, model rocketry, breadboarding, trailer-glass blowing, The Crucible’s welding workshops off the back of a fire truck, pinhole photography, soldering, spud gun building, bubble machines and a bubble guy that appeared on Johnny Carson in the 1970s, Bunnie Huang, Joe Grand, William Gurstelle and his Backyard Ballistics, The Exploratorium, Zeum, The Lunar Society (rocket builders), Graffiti Research Lab, Squid Labs, biodiesel, electric cars, a Linux supercomputer cluster running on veggie oil, neon art, circuit bending, VJs, slide rules, pinball restoration, the Phenomenauts, Satan’s Calliope…and much, much more. Quite an eclectic collection. That’s not to mention Diana Eng of Bravo’s “Project Runway” or the 50 craft booths in Bazaar Bizarre or the Swap-O-Rama-Rama clothing swap.

CNN, NPR Science Friday’s Ira Flatow, KPIX TV, Discover Magazine, CBS News, The Discovery Channel, The New York Times, Kevin Rose of Digg, and CNET will be covering the event. But there’s no reason to read it in a blog or see it on TV, when you can be there in person.

If you haven’t purchased your ticket yet…visit http://makerfaire.com today!

    It’s not “The Lunar Society.”

    It’s LUNAR, the “Livermore Unit of the National Association of Rocketry.”

    What’s that board with the 3 white connectors in the picture with the PROM burner?

  3. joesmooth says:

    jfaith7- That is a development board for the Freescale MX21 ARM processor. Not used for this Maker Faire PCB. :) -joe

    Down the road from me, one of my friends has this:
    http://vis.eng.uci.edu/cg/projects/hiperwall/

    very nice

    Of course the real fun is to use chromium ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/chromium/ ) to slave all the monitors together into one giant 3d render. Realy fun using flightgear or Quake II

    Apple does not make 32″ LCDs.

    20″
    23″
    30″

    Well there are many questions placed here. So if you are wanting answers or even want to follow the progress of the wall-monitors check it out here. http://www.data1online.com/tech

    We update the site and progress of this project daily.

    And trust me, Plasmas, projectors, and especially DLP wouldn’t come close to this resolution.

    And yes it is 30″ Apple LCDs

    & it helped me out much. I hope to provide one thing back and aid others such
    as you aided me.

    I do agree with all the ideas you have presented
    on your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work.
    Nonetheless, the posts are very short for novices. Could you
    please lengthen them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
