The Singapore Mini Maker Faire 2015

I attended the Singapore Mini Maker Faire 2015 today. And here is what I loved most about the visit.

This one was for kids to create paths. A very simple idea that can keep your kids engaged for quite a while!

This takes a plotter and makes a latte artist out of it. Can potentially put a few baristas out if a job 😳

This booth tried to demonstrate WWII encryption/decryption. All you need to do is tweet with a certain hashtag. I did too and it really worked.

And a miniature version of a Raman Spectrometer. More than the display, the guy at the booth was very interactive and explained all the concepts inside out. I really wish these things were there in my school!

There was another booth where they had made a spectrometer out of the iPhone. Patented work, but the guy was very enthusiastic and explained the idea really well. Too bad I didn’t click any pictures as I kept watching his phone do magic with light.

Strawbees booth was excellent. They put a straw based bird shaped wireframe to a regular quadcopter. Added a simple motor to get flap motion and you have a bird. Beautiful to see.

This was a beautiful demo with the leap motion device. Too bad I never even read up about this one. Rather very powerful.

There was another booth that I loved but didn’t take any pictures. It was a arduino shield called anniken andee.

These folks had interesting stuff too. More than the shield I loved their configurable iPhone/Android app platform. I should follow up on this.

There were a ton others, but these are the ones that I enjoyed the most. And before I close, there was a cycling arena outside the venue and many were having a fun time at this too. Part of the faire, here are some pics to give you an idea of what it was like.

Well, that’s it for now. Happy Making.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
