Maker Faire 2011, Detroit, MI (actually Dearborn)
Here is a direct link to my official Maker Faire entry which was the modified RC that I detailed in my previous post [link to post.] The car has had many modifications since then and can now has an Android cell phone that allows the car to be driven over WiFi via a PC or even another cell phone. If driven by cell phone then the car interprets the transmitted values for the "client" phone's accellerometer. I also brought my most recent Graphical Full Color Persistence of Vision project and my MP3 project which I will write full blogs about in the future.
Make gave each presenter 2 extra wrist bands so that you can bring assistants and they also provided two complementary tickets for other people. Because I had someone to watch over my table, we all were able to still check out Maker Faire ourselves. This was a very large event and you really need a good portion of a day to check everything out. All in all, this was a good experience, one that I will definitely repeat at the next local Maker Faire.
Here are a few pictures of the projects that I brought to display and discuss at Maker Faire
