Total Unicorn

Maker Faire Austin is only 10 days away and we have some exciting new updates.

Our schedule is up on our site under Things to Do and See or you can access it directly here!

We’ll be adding more to the schedule over the next week. Currently we have confirmed performances by Austin’s own Total UnicornPonytrapDead Music Capital BandKyle Evans, and Rose Movement Studio. Additionally there will be presentations ranging from giant 3D printing to edible insects. Plus much, much more!

Maker Pro tip #1: The website and schedule look super good on your smartphone, while at the faire don’t forget to use the site as a resource to find out who is doing what and when.

This year we put an emphasis on fire and will have a Fire Garden located next to the Power Tool Drag Racing track. Be on the lookout for Maker Faire Austin’s beloved staff member Tim Deagan and his Flaming Christmas Tree and Flame Mobile (think of a golf cart with 100lb propane cylinder, two 7.5 gallon accumulators, and shoots 30’x15′ fireballs!!!) Additionally look for John Cooper’s Fireball V8, a propane boosch, which he built using Tim Deagan’s book (info here) and Jeremy Williams’s Flowers and Machinery, a propane flame sculpture.
