PopSci is is back at the now twice-annual travelling DIY circus that is Maker Faire. The Bay Area iteration was a blast earlier this year (see our coverage here) but this time, not only is the sweet smell of BBQ mingling with the solder fumes here in Austin, TX, we’ve also brought along some of PopSci’s finest makers—staff photographer John Carnett, who has brought along his amazing all-in-one beer-brewing Device as well as the welded-steel vintage Arcade Table, and Theodore Gray, author of our PopSci-meets-Mr. Wizard “Gray Matter” column (check out his latest work here). We’ll also be raffling off some original creations from our main project man Dave Prochnow.

Stay tuned right here for the best of Maker Faire Austin, starting Saturday, October 20. —John Mahoney
