This weekend the Bay Area plays host to the fifth annual Maker Faire, held at the San Mateo County Event Center:
[Maker Faire] celebrates arts, crafts, engineering, green design, food, music, science and technology and brings together communities who embrace the DIY (do-it-yourself) spirit.
From butter to Halloween animatronics to MIDI controllers, there are programs on making just about anything you can think of.
