We'll be there for the entire event and hopefully be out and about for Maker Faire fishbowl interviews and possibly a makeshift demo, and we'll be rooting for our very own Pedalcar! Family friend "TheD" brought his welding skills and we created our very first real steel construction. It's far from perfect, but with a little work and not very much money, we were able to make something rideable.</p> <p><a href="" class="yoxview_thumbnail"><img class="post-img-c" typeof="foaf:Image" src="" alt="" title="Super-Awesome Sylvia&#039;s Pedalcar the &quot;Flying Fishmonger&quot;, in it&#039;s unfinished state, waiting for a bit for flair." /></a></p> <p>We'll be posting more updates soon, so stay tuned!
