Collection of videos at the Mini Maker Faire in Melbourne, 14th of January, 2012.

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:

Gorilla Builderz:

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.

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:
