If you attended the World Maker Faire in New York this year, I hope you were able to stop by the Tindie booth. I personally enjoyed meeting everyone, and while it can be exhausting to talk for hours on end, it’s a lot of fun discussing a website/service that you sincerely find interesting. If we didn’t answer the big question of “what is Tindie?” well enough, check out this blog post for further explanation!
Of course, much more was going on in the wider world of the events than just the Tindie booth. I got to visit two Tindie sellers, including Tiny Circuits, which was absolutely packed. They had a gigantic version of their handheld game cabinet set up to play Flappy Bird.
Lumen was also at the Faire showing off their solar powered jewelry. The products are really interesting both from an artistic design perspective, and because they run on a tiny amount of power from a solar cell and capacitor. Tindie the dog was also seen at this exhibit, cleverly hiding himself in the mirror meant for customers to view themselves wearing this jewelry.
The event was definitely a great time, and if I met you there I’d love to connect on Twitter @JeremySCook. For that matter, if you have a creation that involves Tindie that you’d like to see featured here, please get in touch. You can also contact Tindie’s official Twitter account with any questions, comments, or concerns.
