Automata by Dug North at World Maker Faire NY 2012

I'm pleased to announce that I have been accepted to exhibit at the upcoming World Maker Faire in New York City! This is the 3rd annual Faire in the New York area and is among the biggest and best events of its kind. Attractions include:
  • Maker exhibits - I'll be just one of over 500 maker exhibits total
  • Presentations from leading voices in the Maker Movement
  • How-to workshops on soldering, lock picking, Arduino and more
  • Incredible attractions including the Life-Sized Mousetrap, Coke Zero and Mentos show, Power Racing Series, the now iconic Cupcake Cars

The event is an extravaganza of creativity, knowledge-sharing, and fun. I will be there showing something much like what you see below:

Thanks so much, Charles! I should point out that it was sunny that day. I'm not angry as I look -- just squinting from the bright light.
