What is a Maker Faire?
Called the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, Maker Faires are part science fair and part county fair. Showcasing invention, creativity and resourcefulness, makers — tech enthusiasts, crafters, artists, educators, tinkerers, students and others — exhibit their work and share their knowledge and skills. Visitors to Maker Faire Milwaukee (MFMKE, for short) will find something different around every corner — makers, performers, presentations, workshops and much more.
Nate Jones has been building and tearing apart speakers in his garage for a long time now. He’s obsessed with sound. Recently Nate demo’d a set of speakers to me that are driven by a laptop, an amp and a pair of 2″ drivers – but they deliver way more sound simply because of the housing design. I could hear individual instruments in specific places of the room. Wild.
Nate will give a demo of these speakers, and an informal talk Thursday night at the space, on how he made them, what he has learned and how you can make them too.
We might even get a glimpse of his current projects.
Hope to see you at the Appleton Makerspace this Thursday at 8pm!
