Maker Faire, SparkFun Flickr and a Caption Contest


Update: The caption contest will end at 9 AM MST on Thursday, May 26th. Get your entries in before then!


There is no shortage of the unusual at Maker Faire.

When SparkFun first started, one of the things we really wanted to make sure we did was have clear, detailed photos of our products. In fact, that was one of the factors that led to SparkFun's inception - the fact that our CEO, Nathan Seidle, couldn't find photos of the actual parts he was buying. It made sense to him that he should be able to see what he was spending his money on. Product photos continue to be something we focus on today.


The soldering workshops at Maker Faire were a blast.

In addition to product photos, we also like to try to document events we attend and keep tabs on whats happening around SparkFun. So, in case you weren't able to attend Maker Faire this past weekend, we have a fairly large photo set to check out! I've picked handful of my personal favorites to post here, but there are a lot more on our Flickr page.


The life-size Mousetrap game is always a hit.

If you haven't visited the SparkFun Flickr page before, there are some pretty cool shots. In addition to the photos from Maker Faire San Mateo this past weekend, there are tons of other pictures from things like our trip to Siggraph, the 2011 AVC Competition, and other zany shots.


(Insert your caption here)

And since we're talking about photos, lets do a caption contest! Take a good look at the above photo - and give us your best caption in the comments. Try to keep them fairly PG! The winner gets - wait for it - a SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino! Let the captions fly!

  • They said “fairly PG!”, not “Try to make the polite 5th graders wince by thinking up twisted captions!”.

  • But you said the cake was delicious

  • Couldn’t resist taking this picture! I talked to Mike (standing) later. Turns out he was trying to console his friend, Tom (kneeling) about being angry that Maker Faire didn’t have a costume contest. Mike was a pretty all-around happy guy. Tom on the other hand, was pretty much always drunk. He told us he was drunk when he made his costume so he couldn’t even tell us what it was!
    See ya on the Friday New Product post (perhaps something about plastic storage containers? ;))

  • Noooo! Nate isn’t here!!?! But I must show him what I did with my Simon Kit!!!

  • It started as these things always do, Subtly. Strange grins that seemed out of place, an odd look as you walked down the hall, Strange devices laying on Marvin’s desk. No one noticed, or rather, no one wanted to notice.
    I wonder now, had I paid more attention, could I have prevented what was to come.
    It was a beautiful spring day when it happened. We were attending our annual company picnic at at the local park.I had noticed Marvin pull up in his truck but paid it no mind, we all were looking for the boss’s car to pull into the lot.
    I was standing by the snack table trying to snare an extra piece of bacon when the screams started. As I turned to see what was going on I saw a large yellow monstrosity coming towards us, Firing … Lasers? Oooze Blasts? something, from a neon tube it was carrying. It was a sight to behold, shaped like a man it had a distended tan chest, a Bucket like head,and some sort of multicolored deformity coming from it’s back.
    As people started to run I found myself like a frog in the flashlight, unable to move and only able to stare in disbelief. As I watched John from accounting get mowed down, I even felt a brief moment of levity, To heck with my expense report. In shock at this thought and what I was seeing I collapsed to the ground, trying to Hide from what was going on.
    Eventually ,however, the field emptied, silence descended and I was left alone with bodies strewn across the once pristine area and the yellow monster.
    I was shocked when rather than blast me as it had others the monster approached. It came next to me and Knelt down and it was then that I saw the tortured face of my boss inside the helmet! As I looked up in horror I saw the ‘Deformity’ On its back detach….
    I blacked out then, In fear ,surprise who knows. I only awoke later in a hospital bed. I was told that the police had found evidence in Marvin’s home that he had been experimenting with Human-Machine hybrids, creating monsters in his basement.

    I was lucky to be alive they said, but now, Years later as I sit watching T.V. I have these odd thoughts come through my head , a strange desire to travel….. Somewhere. And I wonder, Was I so lucky?

    TLDR: “Marvin’s First Experiment in Human-Machine Hybrids is a rousing success! Just a few side affects to work out.

  • Note to self: “Do not go through the transporter with my pet fish, Eric, again!”

  • Subject #492 succumbed to asphyxiation, similar to previous subjects. Cause: blocked air filter (again). We really should fix that.

They will fit over human head - we’ve tried it).

  • Maker Faire just seemed like the perfect opportunity to roll out Sparkfuns newest wearable, the “Backpack Buddy”! This Arduino driven mini-Gundam provides great mobility for anyone willing to sacrifice their legs. We’re working out some wrinkles with the power supply, but the Buddy will park itself in kneeling position (for safety)when the charge level is critical. Full surround protective helmet is optional, but recommended. Electromagnetic Shielding for the power source is not optional according to the NRC.
    Check back for product updates, including a version for those who choose to keep their legs!
