The Maker Faire Rome experience
We are back at home, but also if three days had passed since the end of the First European Maker Faire in Rome, all the emotions and thoughts of those days are still with us.
It was a great experience and we are happy that about 35000 visitors come to see the revolution of the makers, the future of technology coming from common, but fabulous people that spend their spare time in designing, thinking and building something awesome.
We want to thank, first of all, Massimo Banzi and Riccardo Luna for organizing this fantastic event and Massimiliano Colella and Stefano Venditti of Asset Camera for making this event possible.
The presentation of BadPrinter2 was a success; a lot of people asks information about us, about our work and about the project; who was already inside the 3D printing world asks for us technical details, and gives also suggestion and it is a satisfaction to share thoughts and ideas with them; others, that never saw, a 3D printer has the possibility to see this fantastic machine running and creating things in front of them, from a simple 3D computer model.
We want to thanks all of those people, coming from Rome and from other part of Italy for their kindness and curiosity, it was a very intense experience to have contacts with such people.
We met also a lot of makers and we want to greet them all and, in particular, new friends that share with us those days: Tobeca, Sharebot, Hipstercircuits, Hardware girls, Hobbymedia, Italymaker, RepRap.me, University of Cambridge and MakeTank; see you next year!
We want to thanks also all the fablab, hackerspaces, university and schools that shows interest in our project; keep in touch with our blog and updating of the work.
The star of our booth was Pacman and ghosts Blinky and Inky :-); we made it for fun, but they show to all the people the capability of our printer. Now we have to work hard to complete the project and enter in a production phase in order to make available the BadPrinter2 to everyone, so, see you on next update.
