Once again TexLUG-Houston will be participating in the Houston Maker Faire. This year it will be held on October 13-14 at George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. Maker Faire is a showcase for “makers” of all kinds, a place to show off hobbies, experiments, and projects. There may be everything from quilting to robotics, crafts to drones at this event.
In mid-September about 17 TexLUG-Houston members met to discuss Maker Faire and other upcoming activities. The meeting was held at the LEGO® Brand Retail Store in the Galleria Mall. TexLUG-Houston’s participation at Maker Faire will likely include large Space and Wild West displays, many individual models, loose brick for free builds, and some building competitions. There will also be a train/town display by Texas Brick Railroad. Many thanks to the LEGO® Store for allowing us to meet there ahead of regular business hours.
About a week later a few members met to decorate the Power Wheels racer that TexLUG-Houston is working on. Maker Faire is encouraging these projects, and will provide a track for the cars to be run on. TexLUG-Houston’s racer, named “The Highly Sophisticated Interlocking Vehicle System,” is fully operational and ready to go!
Come on out to Houston Maker Faire, stop at the TexLUG-Houston area, and see all the other makers and their projects!
