Inspired by FaMiLab's Mini Maker Faire
, Tech Thursday brings you Micro Maker Mash-Up.
Do you have a crazy pet project you've been aching to show the world? Bring out your work in progress to Urban ReThink on July 12 at 6:25 PM. You'll work alongside artists, engineers, writers, and hackers in a fun, social, collaborative environment.
Let's break it down now, shall we?
Micro: A project that can fit in a 3 x 2 space. (Prohibited: Anything that's combustible, toxic, or generally dangerous...seriously, folks, just use your best judgment.)
Maker: Anything you make with your hands. Crazy side projects are not only welcome, but encouraged. This includes code work, circuit boards, creative writing projects, art projects, crafts, robots (the small, non-evil kind), and any other shades of mad science you can think up.
Mash-Up: A collaborative environment where individuals from divergent backgrounds, such as hackers, artists, writers, and mad scientists, can inspire each other, foster community, and just have a darn good time.
Don't miss a special appearance by Lance R. Vick of FaMiLab and Tawlk. Lance will discuss the outcomes of crazy side projects, such as Raspberry Pi, a component-based computer that children as young as four years old are using to write code.
