Next weekend, September 13-14, OMSI will once again host Portland Oregon’s Mini Maker Faire. Portland is a great place to be a maker: there’s a real DIY culture here and it’s always fun to see the fun things that people bring.
This year’s exhibits and demos will include the 3Doodler pen, guitar tuning, and a Tesla coil (of course). Travis Feldman, designer of the Kickstarter-funded word game Pijin, will talk about designing and making his game. Georgina Hayns and Jeremy Spake of LAIKA will talk about stop motion puppets. And, of course, there will be a food cart pod in case you get hungry.
I’ll be attending with my family on the second day, and will report back with some photos and videos of the event!
