Makers and Hackers: North

BBC Backstage was proud to sponsor the pre-event to the Oreillys Makers Faire which happens next week in Newcastle. Makers and Hackers was a chance to experiment with ideas and prototypes before going to the main event.

We caught a range of people at the event and asked them what attracted them to the event and what they were building.

After all the making and hacking in the day, came the presentations of the work. As you'd expect not everything was totally working but there were some very interesting prototypes including the overall winner, a slip on leg warmer which gives you directions on where to move your foot, a aid to dance to the music which is playing. Very cool and funky stuff. You can see the rest of the videos here.
