Maker Faire

by The SWITCH Team

On April 22nd 2006, the SWITCH team set out for a day of geeky fun at the O'Reilly Maker Faire in San Mateo, CA.  RFID implants, a painting machine, a 50 foot robotic giraffe. These are but a few of the strange and wonderful constructions we saw. Below are a few photos of the event. Enjoy.
