In addition to the hundreds of talented makers at this weekend’s Maker Faire, Make: television will be live, featuring…

The Make: television Stage
Meet the makers who appear on the first season, as well as presentations and discussions from MAKE authors and bloggers. All day, Saturday and Sunday, in Expo Hall.

Projects built during the first season
We’ll have our Burrito Blaster with plenty of shootables, the VCR Cat Feeder topped off with cat food and a Cigar Box Guitar and Amp ready for rocking.

Bring your USB Drives
Jared Boone of ShareBrained Technology and designer James Provost have made an awesome Make: television Media Vending Machine. Bring a USB drive that’s between 512mb and 12GB and load up with HD or media player-friendly versions. The back is completely open so you can how it’s made, and Jared will be on hand. Here it is in the testing phase.

Connect with Geek Squad
We’re proud to host Geek Squad at this year’s Maker Faire. They’ll have Geek Squad Agents on hand to answer any of your tech questions as well as a live Twitter stream rolling throughout the weekend.

Tell us what you make!
We’re building the momentum for a second season and we want to hear from makers of all sorts. Last year, we found a huge amount of unique makers at Maker Faire and we’re hoping to do the same thing this year. Don’t be shy, we love show and tell!
