Collection of videos at the Mini Maker Faire in Melbourne, 14th of January, 2012.
Unfortunately the video is a little bit shaky and crappy in quality because it was filmed on an iPhone.
Official web site for Melbourne's own Maker Faire:
Projects shown in this video, listed in order of appearance. Unfortunately I don't have all the details of the crew or projects listed here. Let me know if you can fill them in.
3D Printing Systems:
Microphone engraver (based on the Egg Bot). I don't have much info about this one.
8x8x8 LED cube:
Maker Bot 3D printer, shown by the Freetronics crew, and then another Maker Bot printing a whistle:
OpenPCR project, demonstrated by Robert Shepherd and his friend. One of my favourites at the Fair:
PCB plotter. Not sure who these guys were.

Interesting concept though, and has some potential with some refinements.
Ultrasonic autonomous car. No details on this one. [UPDATE: It's an Android-powered telepresence robot, called Higgins. Thanks Calozor.
RepRap printing machine:
"Ruby" the Rubik's Cube solving robot:
