World Maker Faire coverage
Last weekend was the World Maker Faire. This annual event held in New York is one of our biggest Maker Faires and this year did not disappoint. We covered it, and so did a lot of other people. There’s so much coverage and recapping goodness that it could only be contained in a bullet pointed list. Here ya go!
- Live updates (from the past!). This is the blog post where we compiled the sights and happenings of World Maker Faire in real time.
- An overview of the best wearable, VR, and IoT tech from Wareable
- Kaleidescope Enrichment wrote about how refreshing Maker Faire can be for women makers.
- Here’s Adafruit’s take on this year’s World Maker Faire.
- NYPD Officer Maltezo of the 110th precinct takes a moment to scratch some records.
- NewCo Shift used the event as an opportunity to introduce corporate America to the Maker Movement.

And finally, a really nicely edited compilation video of the event sent to us from DIY Things That Fly
Halloween 2016 is just around the corner. So get out the sewing needles and your tool kit to get prepping. Here’s the Halloween coverage from the past week.
- Cosplay inspiration for your next costume.
- A box that seems to open on its own… how eery!

And now, some things that defied categorization, but could not be excluded from this list:
3D Robotics, once a promising parts company and up-and-coming drone manufacturer, is now shifting focus entirely to software. But what happened? Forbes covers the rise and fall of this company.
If you’ve had a chance to play around with the Google Science Journal app on your phone, you’ve seen how it takes the sensors on your phone and allows you to collect data with them. That’s great… but what kind of science projects can you actually use them for. Well, Maker Camp just shared 10 free experiments to get you started.
It’s not too late to take advantage of this great Humble Bundle deal on some of our most popular Make: ebooks, as well as snag some new releases.
