World Maker Faire 2014

In less than a week’s time, over 600 exhibitors and thousands of makers will gather in New York City for the fifth annual World Maker Faire. For anyone who tinkers, makes, and hacks, this is the Faire to keep an eye on.

(If you attended Maker Faire Detroit, you might recognize the guys who come into the video at two minutes and four seconds.)

Speakers at the Faire, taking place September 20 & 21, include Ayah Bdeir, Founder of littleBits, Dean Kamen, founder of FIRST Robotics, Mohit Chaudhary and Dante Varotsis of E-nabling The Future, and many, many more.

Loads of new products will be presented on the world stage, from a desktop wire bender to a five-material/color 3D printer. History will be on display too, as with a demonstration by a 3200-lb cereal puffing gun that will recreate this breakfast staple that debuted at the 1904 World’s Fair.

For a complete list of tools and makers who will be at the Faire, make sure you meet the makers.
