MAKE alt.SXSW content badgeIf you have already been watching MAKE’s alt.SXSW livestream, stay tuned today until 3:30 CST and you’ll catch MAKE’s official SXSW podcast.  We are doing a SXSW Maker Show and Tell, profiling local Austinites and makers here for THE FESTIVAL.  (If you have a SXSW badge, the panel is 3:30 at Driskill Hotel’s Maximillian Room, 6th and Brazos.)

Some of the fun we’ll be having:

  • Joe DiPrima of ArcAttack! will be showing off some mad electricity tricks.
  • Christopher A. Locke’s Heartless Machines (pictured)
  • Dr. Bleep of Bleeplabs fame
  • Ethan Reesor’s Jacob’s ladder
  • Austin Tinkering School’s giant bow & arrow project
  • 17 year old Markus Clardy’s “Android in Steel”
  • YOU!  If you’re here for SXSW and have a project you’d like to show off, come to the Driskill / Maximillian Room by 3 PM.
