SSOPC AT MAKER FAIRE ATLANTA!
WHAT?! That is correct! Crankbunny will have a Secret Society of Paper Cuts booth at the Makerfaire Altanta October 4 and 5th.
Featuring both established and emerging local “Makers,” the Atlanta Maker Faire started by MAKE Magazine is a FREE family-friendly celebration featuring speakers, workshops, and exhibition booths. What you can expect is TONS of folks showing off robotics, green tech, electric vehicles, vintage computing, 3D printing, textile arts, home fabrication, and much more!
This event is free and registration is just a way to get you in faster!
The Secret Society of Paper Cuts booth will feature tons of Crankbunny paper toys, paper puppets, pop up cards and paper engineering to touch and play with!
I will be there blabbering around how Crankbunny evolved from using simple tools (such as paper, scissors, glue) to using laser cutters and 3D printed parts to create fun paper goodies.
Sit down and also enjoy a hands on activity that will include making a take away Halloween themed animated paper toy!
Raffle / contest / giveaway at the booth!!

This is a really fun event for everyone. There are a TON of booths and most of them will be doing demos or have hands on activities for folks to try out. Silkscreen shirts, fool around with robots, print stuff, loom shiz, ride around in the nerdy derby?!, learn to grow mushrooms!? donate and re-purpose clothing.
The event is also outdoors in downtown Decatur with tons of fresh air, parking, public transporation (ride your bike!) and foods. So no nerd flu! (ala comic book convention style).
