Mini Maker Faire Salzburg

As usual life keeps me busy so this is a late posting. I haven’t even had time to paint, that’s how busy it’s been.
Today (not really) I’m sat at the Mini Maker Faire in Salzburg, the first one at this location.

New Home


I feel a little out of place as everything is tech orientated and hands-on whereas my display is quite static.

Just across from me is a packed Lego Robotics table.
I’ve produced some bits and pieces to sell, very different from my usual stuff, made mostly from off-cuts of wood found at Happylab.

The event was really well organised and very friendly.
A lot of people stopped by to admire my stuff and ask questions about what I had made. Many children were fascinated by the little waterway in my display board and kept touching it to see if it was real water.
I met a few people who have been using Happylab and it was nice to be complimented on my finished work as they had only seen random unfinished bits.
Number One Son greatly enjoyed working on the electronics and made, with instruction, a singing pencil.

I can’t see things like this happening in England, children with knives and soldering irons. Another reason why it was good to move. Number One Son would like to do more electronics. So I think a crash course for me might be in order as I cannot read a wiring diagram.
