Since its launch in 2006 in San Mateo, California, the Bay Area Maker Faire has been the premiere event for makers, DIYers, hackers, and anybody with an interest in making things real. With everything from soldering clinics to a 3D printing village, it’s hard to leave the event feeling uninspired to get that wacky side project done (like the PancakeBot for example).
The 2014 Bay Area Maker Faire was held this past weekend and is so far the biggest event of its kind yet. Here’s some photos from the scene in the case that you might be able to make it out to the upcoming World Maker Faire in New York this September 20th and 21st for another round of DIY awesomeness.
