What are the characteristics we are looking for as Makers?
A do-it- yourself project that is unique, inspiring, engaging, and interactive with observers. It tells a story. It might be a piece of art… or a tool or project that does something different. It should be something that hasn’t been seen before, or at least by few people. It should not be for commercial purposes – no selling….at least in the Maker Demo Space. The Maker needs to be there to demo and explain. There may be different categories in size…fits in a 10×10 space, or bigger, but outside. There may be an opportunity for a different category of Maker, a company that is experimenting with some one-off projects…things that do unique things. Its okay to take commercial things and do a “mash-up” that repurposes in unique and “ah hah” ways, ie, an underwater bicycle. Risky projects are encouraged, but need to be managed in a way that the audience and property remain safe. For example a rocket-propelled motorcycle would be great, but would need to be shown in a safe way.
Who should apply for a Randolph Mini Maker Faire booth?
