Bay Area Maker Faire Inspires Makers of All Ages

The popular DIY event is coming to SF this month. With Maker Faire less than three weeks away, makers/hackers/DIYers are gearing up to show off their wares and being inspired by hundreds of exhibitors.

Having been a huge enthusiast of Maker Faire, this is the first time I'll be exhibiting, putting a whole new perspective on the event. If you've already attended Maker Faire, you'll understand why I'm so excited, and if you're considering going, expect to be hooked on its endless creativity, whimsy and ingenuity.

So what can you expect to see at Maker Faire? Well it does claim to be the world's largest DIY festival, so expect the unexpected! Some previous favorite exhibitors include the life size mouse trap, the cupcake cars and a live demonstration of the Diet Coke and Mentos "explosive" symphony of soda.

Really, the best way to understand the festival is to experience it. Take a look at these photos from last year's Maker Faire.

Maker Faire is May 21st - May 22nd at the San Mateo Fairgrounds. You can come visit me at the booth on either day! To learn more about the event, visit
