Maker Faire announced last week it is now accepting project submissions for this year’s festival.
Organizers expect to feature more than 700 Makers and their organizations in the seventh annual event that will be held in San Mateo, California. More than 100,000 people from all over the world are expected to attend.
The event is a physical extension of MAKE magazine, a publication in which the do-it-yourself mindset is glorified. Nurtured via step-by-step directions projects such as extreme marshmallow cannons, flame-throwing flowers, and all kinds of robots such as Cupertino father and son team, Lost in Space robot are on display.
Last year the Filos showcased their robot by remote control using a programmed iPhone.
And then there’s who shares projects based on Pixar movie characters.

The Bay Area Maker Faire will be held on May 19 and 20 in the San Mateo Event Center.
