MFA PoD Students Exhibit at Maker Faire 2013!


MFA Products of Design students presented a wide set of work at this year's World Maker Faire 2013 in Queens, New York, attended by 75,000 attendees (! a record for Maker Faire). Piles of visitors came by our booth, and the work seemed to draw the wonder of kids especially. (There must have been 150,000 kids amongst the 75,000 attendees:)

Below are some photos of projects and people. [Photos: Kathryn McElroy, Clay Kippen, Marko Manriquez. Table illustrations by Joseph Weissgold.]
