Hey, I'm famous!

Mini Maker Faire to put the spotlight on creators' handiwork

If you ask the organizers of Las Vegas' Mini Maker Faire, "Why?," they will simply tell you, "Because it's cool."

The event is part of a larger, nationwide maker movement. Makers are anyone who believes the do-it-yourself route is the way to go -- homemade shoes that light up while dancing, a machine that makes pinatas, anything they can imagine.

The people at the SYN Shop, a downtown maker hive at 117 N. Fourth St., slated to open next month, are attempting to unite their laser cutter- wielding community Feb. 2 at the Historic Fifth Street School for the Mini Maker Faire.

"It's really one large show and tell," said Pawel Szymczykowski, an organizer of the event. "People bring their projects and share how it's made."

I want shoes that light up while dancing.

Coolio man, good to get press like this. I also love that the location is called a "maker space." That's just a rad name.

And you're pimping your googles.. nice. I take it you knew they where coming.. hence the nice sweater? You should have worn the outfit from the NYE party. hahaha

It is! Do you have any idea how impossibly hard it is to find long sleeve shirts / sweaters where the sleeves are actually long enough?

Why would I do that, when there are machines in China perfectly willing to do that for me.

By machine you mean a 7 year old child working for 10 cents a day on a 15 hour shift

The cool part about this is the kids 20 year old mom who looks 16 gives an excellent massage and puts out like a champion for only $5 USD

I support outsourcing!

Heh.. I always like when I post something and it picks the perfect random signature for that post.

No, it was winter, and thus cold out and why I worse a sweater. Had no idea they were doing the interview that night. Just happened to have shown up at the space.
