Newcastle Maker Faire 2010

I am delighted to announce that I have been selected to exhibit at Newcastle Maker Faire. The theme of my display will be crafty geekery.

I am intending to take along items which are a mix of traditional crafts such as knitting and jewellery making combined with tech. For example programmable earrings, a temperature sensing hat and a bag that has a proximity detector and RFID tag so it can detect its owner.

I am also going to show off a couple of my other projects like an ethernet adapter for a BBC microcomputer and a “Mood Wall” (It analyses twitter tweets for the mood of the content displaying patterns and colours which reflect the prevailing mood).

Hopefully I will see you there!

    They sounds like great projects. I love the bag with the RFID. My better half I’m sure would love that.

    I saw both your BBC and John’s UK101 at the recent Maker Faire @ Newcastle. It’s great to see old work horses still going after all these years
