Getting Ready For World Maker Faire New York

I’m happy to announce that Soft Circuit Saturdays will be at the first World Maker Faire in New York next month! This will be my 3rd time attending a Maker Faire event, and the first time I will be participating in one of the ‘big’ faires with a booth and projects to share. It’s going to be an amazingexperience to be in the midst of so many people – I’m very excited!

I will be bringing a few things I shared atCambridge Mini Maker Faire, along with some new pieces. I’ve decided to make sure that most of the projects that I bring along will have tutorials and DIY instructions available either on this site, Instructables, or Make:Projects. That means I’ll be spending the next few weekends putting together how-tos, getting everything prepped for the faire, and finalizing my travel plans. Instead of my weekly posts of projects and builds, I will be posting links to interesting projects I find on my Facebook page, and possibly publishing a round-up or two along the way.

I have a few friends who will be traveling with me to help document the faire and the other soft circuit projects and makers that will be there, so stay tuned for photos and videos in the weeks after the event.

Here are the projects I’m bringing (so far):

  • Drawdio Puppet
  • LED Jellies
  • Talking Sock Puppets
  • LilyPad Pillow

Check out all my tutorials over on Make: Projects to learn how to make your own versions of these pieces.
