Lytro spent the weekend at Maker Faire Bay Area 2012, a fantastic festival of DIY enthusiasts in celebration of invention, creativity and resourcefulness. Our booth was completely mobbed for the 2-day event, giving everyone there a chance to play with a Lytro light field camera in person. We ran continuous photo walks, encouraging attendees to wander the fairgrounds in search of interesting light field compositions.
One of the great things about Maker Faire is that it fosters hands-on creativity in children. Many booths offered creative space for kids to experiment. We had a few kids using the Lytro camera during photo walks, which is always exciting for us. Some of the kids who came to the booth already knew everything about the camera, and could easily have led the photo walks for us!
We’d like to congratulate Jeremiah Cohick, Komei Harada, Ingo Richeter, and David Lytle for winning Lytro’s Maker Faire Picture Challenge. All of them posted living pictures to win free tickets in our Maker Faire Challenge
Also, special thanks to beta-tester extraordinaire Grant Hendrick, to the Lytro employees and others who volunteered at our booth, and to the Maker Faire staff who made the booth and photo walks possible last weekend. See you at the next Maker Faire!
