I am delighted to announce that I have been selected to exhibit at Newcastle Maker Faire. The theme of my display will be crafty geekery.

I am intending to take along items which are a mix of traditional crafts such as knitting and jewellery making combined with tech. For example programmable earrings, a temperature sensing hat and a bag that has a proximity detector and RFID tag so it can detect its owner.

I am also going to show off a couple of my other projects like an ethernet adapter for a BBC microcomputer and a "Mood Wall" (It analyses twitter tweets for the mood of the content displaying patterns and colours which reflect the prevailing mood).

Hopefully I will see you there!

Oooh! You might need to prod a bit closer to the time, but that sounds like fun.

Goodness you have been busy! I can't begin to imagine what the hat might do when the temperature goes up and down. Does it raise and lower earflaps or perhaps have some kind of built-in ~sunroof~.
