Maker Faire 2014 Review – Bay Area

It was my first time at the Maker Faire… I was astonished by the amount of amazing stuff that you can find in this world-famous exhibition.

3D Printing & Scanning, Arduino, Drones & Robotics, LED & Lights, Biking & Skating, Craftmanship, Startups, Props… are just an example of what you can find spending a day at this wonderful event.

I can write for hours and hours trying to explain what drove me mad last Saturday but I do believe that images will help you understand even better. That’s why I’m including a photogallery and a my personal YouTube playlist that I’m going to update during these days…

For sure, the electrical board idea of OneWheel was the one that fascinated me the most, and I featured it as the first video of my playlist. The idea is interesting especially because you can ride the board exactly as a snowboard…

Unfortunately the price is still pretty high ($1,500) and the range is limited… while the board itself it’s pretty heavy and bulky so I’m shifting my attention to some slightly different long board such as Zboard or E-Go… take a look, I’ll keep you posted!
