cool neon maker faire  MASAVE THE DATES Saturday & Sunday, May 17th and 18th

Well of course we are going to be at the Maker Faire again this year, because that is what you are, Makers.  So come on out to see us. It is a full-blown community fair that celebrates making, invention and creativity.  This family-friendly event brings together science, art, craft, homesteading and engineering plus music, food, workshops, and performance, and showcases the amazing work of makers across the San Francisco Bay and beyond.

This year we will once again will have a booth in the FIESTA HALL (Dark Hall), where our “LITEWALL” is indicated on the map. If you come in the East Gate, you will have easy access to us.

Stickman Costume Tutorial

Have you ever wanted to be a StickMan? You know, a costume attached to your clothes, and in the dark people can only see you as a StickMan. Well, here is one of those with a schematic and a materials list, so just in case you were thinking about it, here it is! Thanks for the great diagram, Josh.


Have Fun! And please send us some photos if you if you make the costume, we would love to share them on our blog and Facebook Page.

lisa hartWe love how Lisa Hart used Total Control Lighting pixels to light up her gorgeous case mod.  She writes…”Bought more  from your booth at Maker’s Faire this weekend! I was showing off a photo of my casemod where we used the same addressable strips inside and was asked to come here and post a picture Really looking forward to being able to play with the colors more easily with the developer shield now!”

We’re really looking forward to that, too!  Thank you Lisa Hart for sharing this with us!
