With Mini Maker Faire fast approaching this weekend, Makerspaces all over Toronto are preparing to show off their coolest gadgets. For the last year, I’ve served as a director at a local Makerspace called Site 3 coLaboratory. This past week we have been selecting some of the coolest projects we’ve created this year to showcase this weekend. Since Maker Faire is at the Toronto Reference Library, Makerspace have a unique opportunity to reach people who othewise might not have heard about us.
Makerspaces are community-run organizations that allow people to have access to tools and equipment they could not afford to maintain or purchase individually. They are also a great resource for learning great DIY skills! Other interesting Makerspace around Toronto are the Toronto Tool Library, and HacklabTO
Amoung the mass of 3D printers, blinking lights and robots, you can find these crazy cardboard creations. This year, we have all new cardboard robots in store for the public to try on at Mini Maker Faire. We salvage all kind of boxes and packaging supplies to make our wildest costume dreams come true!
Look out for our latest creations this weekend!
