Maker Expo pop-up at Cambridge Art Festival

Cambridge Art Festival 2015 - Maker Expo-9

The Maker Expo crew rolled into the Cambridge Art Festival today representing the Expo as well as kwartzlab. We were engaging makers and visitors alike. Thanks Cambridge!

Got a few more pics for you, but first I’ve got two important messages of the day:
1. We’ll be at Summer Lights Festival tonight in Kitchener at 179 King St W. so come see us and build an LED-lit badge that Agnes has cooked up for you.
2. Sign up for Maker Expo! Right now! Only 9 days left to amplify your fun by participating in our Sept 19 event at Kitchener City Hall.

Alright, a few pics from today…

As I wandered out front of Cambridge City Hall, I was delighted to bump into the ever-awesome crew of Cambridge Live Music. If you don’t know them, you should. They are kicking ass on their mission to connect you with live music.

You can make buttons too. Turns out that you can even cut out a business card logo and use it in your button. Button improv!

I toted my DroneBox a ways away from the Maker Expo table. It’s not for everyone with its buzzing dissonant hums and whirs. Just ask Agnes who had to listen to it beside me on Thursday 😉 (Sorry Aga!)
