Maker Faire 2013 in Hannover
August 5, 2013
Last weekend the first Maker Faire has been landed in Hannover, Germany. It was a great success and a real time experience for me. The only bad things I can tell, it was too short (only one day) and too hot. Approximatly 4500 visitors have visited the exhibition and our booth was surrounded with crowds of people all the time. Too less time for me to walk around to see other makers.
I shared a booth with 4 other robot makers from the Roboternetz.
FrankenBoB was the eye catcher from my point of view. The kids love it, except one little girl that starts crying when she saw it moving. To my surprise, the Makey Makey clone was number 2 of the most admired projects on my part of the booth.
I found a lot of other robotics related projects in the short time I had. Here are some inspirations:
Some robots from 'Wir machen Roboter', the german division of letsmakerobots.
Kolja Kugler's robot band Afreakin Bassplayer & Sir Elton Junk.
Malte Ahlers A1 Humanoid.
