This morning, selection panel meets to hover over the thirty projects entered into the Round I Call for Makers for Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire 2012. From biomimetic robot animals to upcycled blacksmithing, wearable planets to kindergarteners teaching circuitry, our first pool of makers is our first glimpse of this year’s Faire – and the view from here is mesmerizing.
As we retreat into our underground secret selection cave to find the best projects, we thought you’d enjoy this “Best Of” tour of Maker Faire 2012 from Wired.com’s GeekDad. They’ve pulled together a tour of the articles, videos and recaps from around the internet to give you a smorgasboard of everything you did or didn’t see in San Mateo this year. Check it out and be mesmerized yourself by “the world’s greatest show and tell”.
