On The Road to Maker Faire Challenge, Quite Literally

On The Road to Maker Faire Challenge, Quite Literally

Road to Maker Faire Challenge Inspired by gypsy wagons, with a dash of Oregon Trail pioneering, the maker known as Paleotool has submitted “The Vardo” wagon to the Road to Maker Faire Challenge, presented by Esurance. One lucky maker will win $2,000 to bring themselves and their awesome project to Maker Faire Bay Area next month. Paleotool took the title of this challenge to its very literal logical conclusion, proposing a tow-hitched trailer journey to the Bay Area – hah! As a fan of alternative habitats, I’m impressed not only with the build quality, but by how expansive the interior is, with a bed, stove, and plenty of storage space for short-term living.

The winner of the Challenge will be announced very soon, but there’s still time to apply – the deadline is April 5th, so apply now for your chance to win $2K!
