And just like that, another weekend of making has come to an end but not without its ‘Faire’ share of memories. The Atmel team spent the weekend of October 3-5th in Italy’s Renzo Piano Auditorium Parco della Musica for Maker Faire Rome. The European flagship event attracted a record-setting 80,000+ Makers, modders, hackers, hobbyists and veteran engineers from all across the continent.
Inside our jam-packed space, booth-goers had the chance to meet and mingle with a number of Makers and their Atmel powered projects.
Atmel’s Wizard of Make Bob Martin demoed uToT Robots and his incredibly-popular hacked Hexbugs — which has become quite the fixture at Atmel Maker Faire booths.
Newcomer to the booth Monique Martin exhibited her latest Beehive Collapse project, which featured 3D-printed hexagons.
The SparkFun team, led by CTO Trevor Zylstra, allured over 1,300 attendees to our co-branded soldering workshops all weekend.
Oh, and how could we forget? The Maker community’s favorite superhero AVR Man was in attendance.
Now, for a look back at some of the memorable moments from the show…
