Check out a Maker Faire Near You!

by Jillian Leslie on

This weekend I went to the Maker Faire in San Mateo, California and it was awesome!  As a maker myself, I was totally inspired. It's a combination of DIY, technology, and crafting.

There are Maker Faires all over the US and all over the world. Since many of you are makers yourselves, I recommend one.

My highlights...

Here's an Ultimaker 3D printer printing a plastic bowl. When the prices drop, I am definitely getting one.

Instead of origami, this display was made of tape, hence the name "tapigami."

A Kickstarter funded company called Roominate, started by two women engineers at Stanford, to inspire girls to build their own dollhouses. My daughter has one and loves it!

Another Kickstarter funded company called Goldie Blox, also started by a female Stanford engineer, to teach girls about engineering. We bought the game at Maker Faire for my daughter, but they will be in Toys R Us soon.

Foam interlocking shapes to build stuff with from a company called Itsphun. We bought the starter pack and now they are all over our living room in lots of crazy shapes and combinations.

I heard Brit Morin from Brit+Co speak about what inspired her to start her company. An artist was right by the stage, drawing an image of her speech.

And here she is... I wish I had a photo of her shoes because they were fantastic.

And here's my little maker (who believes she can make anything) building a structure with wood.

    structing newer places, villas, and also Dubai hotel rooms.

    One may ask here what exactly are the eco-friendly as well as green buildings that marilyn and i are talking about.Do they already have farming and even gardening going included alongside with the usual approach to life? This source paused to get a moment trend around to your answer, and also found the explanation.Buildings that have been friendly in the eco model, including the humans residing in the individual, were supposed to be called by your name ecologically-friendly or possibly green complexes.In many other words, we were holding to be generated from that recycled, eco-friendly and also locally made available construction content.This would make sure two key eco-aware calculates.The earliest, the least variety of raw materials and energy resource consumption swirling while typically the building had been developed, as well as the second, the smallest amount of amount of garden greenhouse emissions taking place once it had become handed onto buyers.Bearing in mind Dubai's capacity and growth, it was initially but required ask pertaining to eco-friendly Dubai resorts (United Arab-speaking Emirates), furnished apartments and villas to carry on having an important sustained development.

    In the truth of non-eco homes, the affect environment is profound.As an example, the homes of the usa consume 25% about total normal water, 70% regarding total an electrical source, 49 % from total energy and being fired and with regards to 38% associated with total CARBON.Sustainable houses in the area, in the fact that sense, directly reduce public health insurance and productivity on one hand, and reduce the environmental destruction and using costs at the other.Practitioners with the green buildings, in some cases, even rise above the chief structure and endeavor to incorporate this vicinity as well, into your original variations.Accordingly, many upcoming Dubai inns, hotel residences and equipped villas are generally envisaged submerging within the landscape they were made to engage in.

    Some widely used misconceptions in regards to the eco-friendly and non-eco-friendly homes both, dog the real estate market world about.For example of this, the injury to environment by your non-eco-friendly buildings can be underestimated.Alternatively, the build costs with the eco-friendly styles are overestimated as a result of 300%.This conveys why there can be so number of green buildings to generally be seen approximately in the whole world, in the modern day era.Dubai, the main city many areas, may as well prove out to always be the chief in launching the earth-friendly concept in a major model.One must wait watching to see the impact associated with such plans on Dubai inns (United Arabic Emirates), equipped villas not to mention similar other initiatives.
