Have you ever gone to the Maker Faire?
They've spread out to several sites across the country now, including Detroit, where I've gone 2 of the past 3 years while it was here. Very interesting displays and people watching, and has really gotten the brain working on some hobbies and DIY projects I'd like to get into. Ever been? What's been your favorite part.
This year I saw 3D printers are available for under $600. Nicer ones will run closer to $2000. But, it's gotten me really interested and thinking of some projects I could do.
