ThingOut was very cool. I met a lot of people and explained about RepRap and about my InkShield until my throat was sore. It was a very warm day and staying fully hydrated was hard. There was a nice write-up on GeekWire, with my picture at the top. Some of the other people there had things such as:
- Swamp coolers
- A rail gun
- A yurt
- A fan powered bike
- A robot controlled by brain waves (with an emotv headset)
- Liquid nitrogen powered hovercraft
- A robot with a Nerf machine gun
- and more...
This event was followed by Ignite Seattle. This was a very good set of talks ranging from a one armed juggler who juggled bowling balls (YES, TWO bowling balls with ONE arm!!!) to a talk about crowd control, one about record collecting, and many more.
All around this was a very fun event and I plan to attend both again in the future.
There are more pictures on my Flickr set.
