TreeHugger Heads to Maker Faire Bay Area 2012

© Jaymi Heimbuch

This is the 6th annual Maker Faire Bay Area, an event put on by MAKE Magazine that brings together DIYers, hackers, builders, crafters and in general do-ers to share their projects and products. You can find everything from robots walking the streets to bicycles disguised as cupcakes to cheesemaking workshops and everything in between.

And for the fourth year in a row, we're heading out to join the fun and bring you all the cool stuff as inspiration. You can check out our Maker Faire landing page to get caught up on past coverage and see the amazing stuff from the last few years.

For staying connected during the weekend with updates and photos, follow my Twitter stream @JaymiHeimbuch and my Instagram @jjheimbuch, as well as @TreeHugger on Twitter and @treehuggerdotcom on Instagram. Posts will start flowing shortly after here on TreeHugger with lots of details about the amazing stuff we see this weekend.

And to keep you entertained today, here is a collection of some of the buzz around the event across the web:
