Today we were asked to help out with a family member at the Detroit Maker Faire and were skeptical about what would be there… but then as we were setting up, R2D2 stopped by. The whole family lit up and we surrounded him (…it?) and had to take a picture.
We were convinced that was going to be the highlight of our long day ahead of us…. but boy were we wrong….
Think those are cool? How about these…
Star Wars aside, I have to admit, the Detroit Maker Faire was a blast! There were really cool crafts, giving us great ideas for new projects… plus lots of cool cutting edge technologies; our favorite was a Soccer Robot that chased after and kicked a red ball around the floor. We had so much fun! It also didn’t hurt that it all took place at the Henry Ford Museum (filled with classic cars)!
