The sweet smell of Asian-Infusion tacos and extruded plastics over the sound of kids screaming “I want to solder next!” or “Hey Dad, look at this 3D printer!” could only mean one thing: you’re at a Maker Faire. Held this past weekend at the NY Hall of Science, the New York Maker Faire drew record crowds and proved once again that we truly are in a Maker Revolution. With over 70,000 in attendance this year (up from 50,000 last year) and an increased focus on digital fabrication techniques (have you ever been to an event with a ‘3D Printing Stage’?), this has so far been the most informative, interactive, and culture-defining Maker Faire to date. We’ve rounded up our favorite photos from the event that have been divided into three distinctive categories that really defined what this year’s Faire was all about: Today’s Maker Scene, the new 3D Printing Village, and The (Young) Maker Revolution.
