MakerCon came to a close this evening after two full days steeped in thought-provoking talks, awesome demos, and lively conversations with some of the most innovative figures in the Maker Movement.

The MakerCon Showcase was like its own Mini Maker Pro Faire, housing a wide array of startup companies who brought their cutting edge products and devices to display for attendees. These entrepreneurs were showing off everything from a 3D printer-esque machine that “prints” pancakes to smart aquaponics systems and a robot arm that mimics your movements.

We would have loved to sit down and speak with each of these inventors. In spite of the conference’s jam packed agenda, we were at least able to snap some photos to share with you. Check out the gallery below:
