Maker Faire Orlando 2014 Recap

Posted on in Events

I had a great time this past weekend at Maker Faire Orlando 2014. I’ve been a part of this event since 2012, when it started as the Orlando Mini Maker Faire and was held at the Central Florida Fairgrounds. Last year the organizers partnered with the Orlando Science Center, and this year the event became a “full” Maker Faire – no more mini – and expanded to two days. As usual, the organizers, volunteers, sponsors and makers put on a great show, and we had thousands of visitors from all over come and enjoy the event. If you’ve never been to a Maker Faire, I highly recommend it… click here to find a Maker Faire near you.

This weekend I showcased Beautiful Chaos, my experimental art app created for the Leap Motion Controller, as well as my Local Notebooks project, along with the leather notebook covers created by my friend Shawn of form·function·form and laser etched with the maps I’ve been designing. I also gave a short talk about interacting with computers through interesting user interface devices like the Leap and the Myo. I’d like to give a big thanks to my friends Bill, Erica, Sergio and Shawn for helping out at my table.

A few of the organizers from the upcoming Art & Algorithms festival in Titusville came to support me, and to promote their festival, and they shot a few videos:
