How was Maker Faire Bay Area?

The Parallax team had an amazing time at Maker Faire Bay Area May 19th & 20th at the Event Center in San Mateo. Hundreds of people came and stopped by our booth in the Expo Hall and got a chance to battle with our Sumo Bots. Others were able to see our ELEV-8 quadcopters on display in the Maker Shed and even see a few in-flight on Sunday afternoon.

The Maker Bot robots in their petting zoo were actually built on top of our very own Scribbler 2’s. These rugged little robots took some hard knocks playing with all the kids over the weekend and just kept on rolling.

We even got to turn the photography tables on Roborazzi, Microsoft’s robot built on our Eddie platform.

Thank you to everyone that got a chance to stop by and spend some time with us. See you September 29th & 30th at World Maker Faire New York!
