Mini Maker Faire

Built from a kit, a kid was demoing this computer controlled egg painter. One of his eggs had a map drawn on it.

Saturday afternoon the family visited Maker Faire, Somerville. My daughter was excited by the trebuchet, the car with a silver deer head hood ornament, and many other things there. I loved the big learn-to-solder station for kids. Soon, my daughter will be old enough to try that out. In the mean time, she can peruse all the booths and get inspired to make robots and anything else she puts her mind to.

I particularly enjoyed the three pendulum harmonograph. I have been hankering to build on of these for year, and this might have been the impetus to do so once my current furniture and office rearranging is finished.
