Developing Dreams’ interactive 3D printing installation, a giant knitting robot, laser printed trains, and a social media powered photobooth are just some of the highlights at the Brighton Mini Maker Faire at the Corn Exchange on 7 September.
In addition to all the amazing makers in the interactive exhibition, there will be some inspiring speakers and high profile panellists discussing burning issues, which Developing Dreams helped curate. From conductive paint, digital pyrotechnics, toys of the future, and 3D printing to the Raspberry Pi phenomenon and the art of metalworking.
When The Drum, a news site specialising in modern marketing and media, approached us to comment on the state of Brighton’s digital economy, we were delighted to share our opinion with reporter Angela Haggerty.
Developing Dreams is very excited about its involvement in the Brighton Mini Maker Faire 7-8 September 2013. We will help promote the biggest celebration of arts, crafts, science and technology in the South East which is in its third year running. We will also help organise a mini conference, running alongside the main event, with inspiring talks by local and world-renowned makers.
If you have a great project, skill or interactive installation you would like to exhibit, then hurry! The call to makers is open until 7th June.

The presentation was fantastic, very insightful and thought-provoking, despite internet access going down. Thanks to all those who attended.
The difference between these two articles on 3D printing from in utero scans caught my eye recently. Same process, same technology, but while one seems slightly freaky and outlandish, the other seems humanistic and innovative. Don’t think you’ll have any trouble spotting which is which… Continue reading
To take one pound of equipment into outer space costs around $10,000, according to Autodesk’s director of strategic research. It doesn’t take an accountant to figure out why governments are already ploughing swathes of cash into researching the application of 3D printing in a zero gravity environment. Continue reading
