Heard of Maker Faire? It’s an event that draws a crowd with one thing in common: a passion for making things. You’ll see amazing inventions, artwork, DIY projects, robots, electronics projects and lots more. It’s hard not to be energized by the atmosphere of innovation, sharing and fun. The Extreme Windows Blog’s Gavin Gear attended this week’s Maker Faire 2013 in New York City, where Microsoft was on hand with a tent full of technology, projects, prototypes and tools.
