We went again this year for both days and this years Maker Faire was definitely bigger and better than last years. More floor space, more stands and more visitors.

There were a lot of CNC projects on display this year with RepRap being the most popular. There was even an early version of the OpenPCR on show.

Mitch Altman was there again, working the maker area and the old guy from TV's The Gadget Show doing the rounds with a camera crew.

All in all, an excellent weekend
