Open Bidouille Camp – aka mini-Maker fair

Posted by in Default

Last sunday was the first mini-Maker fair in France, the Open Bidouille Camp. Nice gathering for grown-ups & kids (and many grown ups acting like kids), around makerbots, mindstorm NXTs, kinexts, weird robots and even weirder servers in-a-box.Although I regretted the fat that it’s missing a few central element of the maker fair: awesome DIY kits to buy and build (on-site) as well as a hacker space to find help on personal projects (I have a couple ongoing which could have used some), this first edition was quite successful and kid made his first electrical circuits (with buzzers buzzing and lights lighting up).
