Maker Camp: It’s Magic!
Mitch Altman.

Today marks the third week of Maker Camp and this week’s theme is fun and games. We’ve got a double-header for you. To start things off at 11am PDT we’re going to spend some time with the incomparable Mitch Altman, creator of the beloved TV-B-Gone, a device that turns off any TV with the push of a button.

Mario the Magician.

Then at 1pm PDT we will be joined by the amazing Mario the Magician. Mario is not only a great showman, but he’s a true maker who builds his own props, tricks, and costumes. He’s particularly fond of Arduino and the magic he can make with it and his magic suitcase. Don’t miss it.

Here’s a preview:
