Today we packed up and moved everything to Maker Party. We set up the booth and got things organized for tomorrow. Met the dudes from Chiang Mai Maker Club, a non-profit, free, and open-source hakerspace. I got a tour of their space and an introduction to all of the cool stuff they have built and are working on currently. Projects include: two drift carts, a completely home built Segway, several different custom drones, and smart lighting systems, fish tank and coffee maker, voice controlled by an Amazon Echo. They were also busy gearing up for robot-maze and battle-bots style robot competitions, which are happening all weekend. These guys are so friendly, excited, and nerdy and are working so hard to make it awesome. It’s going to be great event!
We drove back to Makerspace and I left for the first night of Galleries’ Night Chiang Mai, similar to Somerville open studios, complete with live music and great street food. I checked out the Lanna Architectural Center’s exhibition about Architectural Conservation and the GNCM Young Artists Showcase, the Supachet Exhibition at Supachet’s Studio, and the MORE THAN WORDS exhibition at Mini Wall at D-Bistro Gallery before everything closed up at midnight. Plenty more going on tomorrow.
