Since our company event ended successfully, I went to Maker Faire Hong Kong. Actually, I went there last year, so Hong Kong will be the second time in a row for the second consecutive year. Since Hong Kong Polytechnic University is the same place as last time there is a sense of security.
Hong Kong has a lot of STEM related exhibits. The best place in Hong Kong is where you can listen to exhibitors in English (with posters too). No, Shenzhen is about 100 times faster than the streets though Maker Faire’s venue can use English.
As last year, the venue is divided according to Zone, so I will post it with a multitude of photographic components.
this electroplating machine looks amazing:
various projects including homemade boats, construction clothing, marble runs, Makeblock bot, 3D-printed toys, micro:bit projects, and lots more:
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
