The weekend of 29 and 30 August was a fantastic celebration for creative and passionate Makers.
Both makers and visitors enjoyed themselves for hours, kids could not stop playing and tinkering with the many creative tech activities.
Nearly 2,000 visitors went to the Eindhoven Maker Faire at the VDMA complex, despite the extreme hot weather; in the large hall with a glass roof rising temperatures to tropical heights.
The more than 80 Maker presentations and activities gave a pretty diverse picture of what is possible in the field of 3D printing, recycling, food technology, playful software, media, electronics, robotics, biosensors, art, drones, fabbing, tinkering and much more.
Popular Maker presentations included: The performances of the robot InMoov with its inventor Gaël Langevin, who presented in a voice-controlled robot dialogue its many gestures and actions; The spectacular Ontdekfabriek Chain Reaction; Marble Runs; Spell your Future and the SF drawing workshop; Lennie van Vugt metal art; Samantha van Garderen maker design; FabLab013; ProBotiX …
It was a really great festival, with a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere where knowledge sharing and presentation of creations has induced many new contacts and inspirations. We are wondering how many visitors have turned into new creators-to-be!
