Our long weekend started early in the mornig in Spain on Thursday 18 Sept. As usual, we travelled by train from Zaragoza to Madrid in order to pick a plane to NY. After more than 8 hours flying and several more waiting in airports and stations, we arrived there. We spent the entire Friday preparing the booth, and ensuring all our projects and hacks were working properly, and preparing all the merchandising and promotional material.
Here, some NY pics. Not all of them were taken at arrival... some on Thursday, some on Friday...
The show started on Saturday, and a lot of people came to our stand... In our stand they enjoyed small demos of our hacks like:
- Nacho, our e-Health patient: the visitors can test all the sensors included in our e-Health Sensor platform.
- Radiation Shields: Using the test beads, visitors can measure the radioactivity levels - the values are displayed in the screen.
- Mind-controlled Beer Machine: It is very popular also. Just concentrate, and the beer appears.
Two quick photos of the booth, one with an special visitor (do you recognize her?), and one of our kind neighbours... ;)
And finally, some general photos of Maker Faire New York.
We will post more photos and comments in a couple of days! We have seen a lot of things this weekend and it's not possible to include all our experiences in just one post!!
