TNW took a trip to the Maker Faire in Lille to find the weirdest and wackiest devices around – and we discovered just that. We’re releasing a new video every couple of days and this is where you can find them all.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Maker Faire, it’s a worldwide event where people come to share their inventions. These can be anything from furniture made out of old oil drums, all the way through to DIY drone racing. Basically, it’s a hotbed of creativity.
Best of all, we were lucky enough at TNW to go and visit one of these events in Lille – and, lord, did we have one hell of a time. So, in this piece, we’re collating all of the incredible inventions we came across at the Maker Faire.
Some people buy jetskis, others do woodwork, while some join a club to build cool robots from Star Wars.
Who said that bikes needed to be made out of metal? Definitely not this fella. He, in fact, believes the opposite.
If you’ve never dreamed of standing in front of an admiring crowd and racing wood sanders then… did you even have a childhood?
Yep, you’re seeing that correctly. That’s me playing a goddamn pineapple. And another human being. This, friends, is the future.
We’re going to be updating this page over the next couple of weeks with all the awesome projects we found, so keep coming back for some more brilliant inventions from the Maker Faire in Lille!
