Pictures From China’s First Mini Maker Faire

Pictures From China’s First Mini Maker Faire

Earlier this month, the first Maker Faire in China took place in Shenzhen, a special economic zone noted for its electronics production facilities and factories. Over 60 local and foreign makers traveled to Shenzhen, including Mitch Altman from San Francisco, Gen Ito from Japan, makers from Beijing, as well as participants from Shenzhen’s own hackerspace Chaihuo. Projects included robots, egg-bots, 3D POV displays, and even toys upcycled from piano parts, alongside tables teaching about modeling clay and the always popular learn to solder workshop. Thanks to Eric Pan from Seeed Technology for helping organize the event, and Ian from Dangerous Prototypes for the pictures. Many more pictures, and interviews with makers can be found here.
