Dino Segovis from Hack a Week shared this video with us about his experience with the third Maker Faire North Carolina. See the laser range finder, laser oscilloscope, ball launcher, and more from this prodigious Maker followed by a tour of some of the other Maker projects. Enjoy!

This past Saturday was spent looking over the location for Maker Faire NC 2011. It will be held in the Gov. Kerr Scott building at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds, and with over 20,000 sq. ft. of usable space, there will be plenty of room for all of our exhibitors and guests.
We have a tentative layout for this year’s Maker Faire, with areas penciled in for the “Chaos Machine” and music performers, as well as zones for tech, electronics, crafts and textiles. There are restrooms a-plenty and a snack bar too!
If you are interested in becoming an exhibitor at Maker Faire: NC 2011, submit your application here. We still have spots available and would love having you as part of this amazing event!
Lets file this under the "Better Late than Never" category...
I can't believe that I missed the blog post that author and crafter Kari Chapin posted in May after visiting Maker Faire:NC. Kari came down from Massachusets to our event as part of her book tour promoting her well-loved title The Handmade Marketplace: How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally, and On-Line (totally non-commercial link to Amazon... we don't make a dime!).
Kari and the totally awesome Megan Risley shared a space in the sweltering sauna section of Maker Faire:NC. After returning to her home in Massachusets, Kari posted a very nice account including some great photos of her visit to North Carolina that I thought you all might like to read.
Thanks for coming, Kari! I hope we'll see you next year promoting your latest opus!
