Explore Microscopic Worlds at Benicia Mini Maker Faire


The Benicia Mini Maker Faire opens its gates for the first time on March 28 and is already becoming the talk of the town. Dale Dougherty will be speaking at the faire along with a host of robots, electric bicycles and cars, clean sustainable technology projects, and steampunk favorites. Kids (and adults) will be able to extract their DNA, build paper rockets, and learn to solder while enjoying some music and great food.

Electronics will be featured prominently with a healthy dose of Arduino and Raspberry Pi goodness. One of the more interesting exhibitors is GIGAmacro, a company based in Napa, California, and founded by makers. The products they make allow you to “zoom into and move around a hugely detailed, completely in focus, image. See normally invisible details: unprecedented image quality and resolution, to micron scale.” They will also be announcing some big news at the show.


GIGAmacro will display the first prints from their historic one trillion pixel image, the Terabite, at the Benicia Mini Maker Faire on March 28. History was made when a one trillion pixel macro image was photographed using three GIGAmacro Magnify2 systems. Over 619,000 individual photographs of foods from around the world were captured and will be combined to create a seamless one terapixel macro image. Using off-the-shelf camera equipment and a dash of ingenuity, GIGAmacro is creating a fully explorable image with unlimited resolution and microscopic detail, viewable in your web browser.
