Makerfaire NC was a blast! 757Labs manned a table near some other great groups including other hackerspaces, the wonderful Techshop RDU, Shopbot and others. In one year it's amazing how much the event has grown and how the attendance was solid ALL day. There never was a break. Our RockBand Drum Circle was on beta test display, as was Kyle's LED cube and the Hackerspaces in Space space balloon bits. All in all a great time. Thanks to Makerfaire NC for having us and Hines Design Labs for spreading the word to us! Thanks to all the lab members that helped out!
David, Jack and I (Ethan) also visited Techshop RDU on Friday evening. A 20,000 square foot space with every tool and resource you can think of! I knew of Techshop but had no idea how stacked it was with equipment and resources.
We met some Hampton Roads locals who had traveled down to Raleigh for the event. Do you think a mini Makerfaire would be possible here in Hampton Roads? Opposite time of the year from Raleigh and supportive of their event?
