Once again ThingM will be at Maker Faire. We’ll be in the Maker Shed, demoing our BlinkM family, as well as showing off what the new blink(1) mk2 can do. So. many. LEDs. And we’ll be just one of many showing off LED projects. And for the first time outside of our Kickstarter, you’ll be able to get your own blink(1) mk2! We have a limited quantity on hand for the Shed and they’ll be stocking them for us. (Any backers reading this, yours are shipping now, but come visit us at the Faire if you want more) Maker Faire Bay Area 2014 is May 17 & 18 at the San Mateo Event Center. It’s mind-blowing and fun.
