I attended both MakerCon and Maker Faire Bay area this year, and they were fantastic. I had been to the World Maker Faire before. The Bay Area Maker Faire is like a wild, mutant version of the New York City event with a huge dollop of Burning Man on top.

Here are some of my favorite robots from the week, and follow me on Robots Dreams if you want to see more of my work.


This week marks the official launch of Make: Volume 39 — Robotics, which drops on newsstands the 27th. Be sure to grab a copy at a retailer near you, or subscribe online right now and never miss another issue.

We are celebrating with five days of robot-related articles, pictures, videos, reviews and projects. Tune into this space for Robot Week!

Our next theme week will be wearable electronics. Send us your tips or contributions before it gets here by dropping a line to [email protected].
