Since Fin was out of town, I took the opportunity to Geek-it-up at the Maker Faire Kansas City, and grabbed Blazed to explore.
The Make people threw a fairly decent party, both inside and outside Union Station. A solid mix of people were present. I spotted everyone there from dirty hippies to Glassholes.
We caught the “Coke and Mentos” guys doing a demo.
(Video is recording from another fair / year / someone else, but the presentation was similar).
We saw people building boats from trash.
There were people showing off plants:
And electric cars:
And Tesla Coils playing music:
Inside, there were people trying to sell stuff. Some really cool local businesses, some big businesses, and a lot of kick starter and artish projects. Microsoft gave a moderately creepy demo of the X-Box One and the capabilities of the new Kinect.
I’d recommend a visit for all the nerds and non-nerds out there next year.
