Eye on the Bay coverage of Maker Faire Bay Area

MakerFaire370x278.jpgSan Francisco’s KPIX/Channel 5’s “Eye on the Bay” program did a decent, lengthy, and enthusiastic piece about this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area. The piece covers everything from the R/C warships to Russell the robotic giraffe and “Hand of Man” to the steampunk offerings to art cars, the Coke and Mentos show, and the bicycle-powered stage. Definitely a nice, satisfying slice of what Maker Faire has to offer (though they don’t mention anything about this year’s ReMake America theme, all of the amazing food makers we had, or any of the crafts). Several times during the piece, the reporter insists you have to plan to go next year. He’s right!
