Maker Faire Bay Area 2007- 05.23.07
Make magazine is putting on the Maker Faire twice this year, and it just passed through the Bay Area on May 19-20 (it will be in Austin Oct. 20 & 21). The Maker Faire is “A two-day, family-friendly event that celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset. It’s for creative, resourceful folks who like to tinker and love to make things.” A friend of mine went to check it out this past Sunday and I asked her to take some pics for us (thanks, gigglebliss!). She shared a bunch of pics with me and this super cute “T@B” camper/trailer caught my eye. A Bay Area company called Hardtent rents out these little guys for when you wanna go camping and don’t wanna go in a big RV but don’t wanna totally rough it with just a tent either. The interior is so cute, with a dining area that turns into a larger-than-queen-sized bed, and there’s even an awning so you can chill outside in the shade. Check out more images of the trailer and the Maker Faire after the jump!

My friend’s official report on Maker Faire:
little robot lovin’ gamer geeks and their craft savvy ‘rents that couldn’t take the 8 years olds to burning man were all there.
it was definitely kid friendly and had all the food-faire of a typical carnival. it was my first time to have funnel cake and we couldn’t leave without having some roasted corn. it definitely left you wanting to make.
