I'm back from the 2008 Austin Maker Faire. As always Maker Faire was an interesting and worthwhile experience. I was impressed by how many robot builders I saw this year and by how many other makers expressed interest in robots. I still have another hundred or so photos from Sunday to upload but all the Friday and Saturday photos are now up now. Keep an eye on the Austin Maker Faire 2008 photo gallery for the others to appear soon. My report on the last day is a little late because the WiFi connection in the barn was flakey on Sunday, possibly due to those Ham radio guys at the table behind us. :) In the meantime, read on to see more new robot photos from Maker Faire.

I just viewed all the pictures, and am kicking myself that I wasn't able to attend.

Next year...next year...
