Bay Area Maker Faire 2010 video

Since the previously-posted stills can’t quite convey the chaos of last weekend’s Maker Faire, here’s some video from the event to help get you through hump day. It’s like three liters of Jolt Cola in a two liter bottle.

One thing even video can’t adequately capture is our gratitude toward our readers at the show who took time to express their appreciation for the blog. You guys and gals rock our world. Thank you!

    Very nice vid of the major attractions! What’s up with the subliminal Arduino promotion? :)

  2. Caleb Kraft says:

    Haha, I didn’t notice that….

    Phil, you got some ‘splainin to do.

  3. spiderwebby says:

    spot the subliminal at 2:04

  4. lay-z-eye says:

    ok guys, gotta be a little quicker with the flash if you want it to be subliminal. haven’t you seen fight club?

  5. grovenstien says:

    Bloody Hippies!

  6. John says:

    What’s the framerate of this vid? Could it have been any faster?

    Anyway, off-topic…

    Looks like a great show!

  7. Phil Burgess says:

    Busted! Dangit, the post’s not even up for half an hour and folks start spotting the gag. :)

    The video is 30 fps, but two frames is the shortest insertion iMovie would allow.

  8. John says:

    Ha! Sorry to be a spoiler- I thought it was a neat touch. At least it’s drawing attention to the vid!

  9. Mikey says:

    Wow, I didn’t even catch the subliminal the first time, I’m totally susecptible. At first I thought you guys were on about the banner hanging from the ceiling THAT I noticed the first time.

  10. ithon says:

    Was hack a day at the EL booth, if it wasn’t you guys missed out on some free publicity.

  11. Erik says:

    Haha, 2:02 Arduino subliminal message! That’s probably the only thing that got this video on the front page…

    I missed the Tesla shows while I was there :(

  12. Nanan says:

    Are there any such fairs down here in Houston, Tx?

  13. Chaos says:

    Wasn’t that music playing when the Tesla guy was dancing a remix of something from Pokemon?

  14. Amouge says:

    @Chaos : I believe its zelda :)
