This coming weekend is BrickFair, the largest Lego fan festival in the United States. People come not only from all over the country, but all over the world to view and discuss Lego sculptures with fellow enthusiasts and to view creations of every shape and size that are on display. This Friday, in addition to displaying some of my own creations this weekend, I will also be speaking.
My talk will be on Lego and the Arduino Microcontroller and focus on combining Lego bricks and open source hardware and how it compares to Lego Mindstorms. The talk is open to all exhibitors at 2pm on Friday somewhere in the Dulles Expo Center (I don’t know exactly where, but will when I arrive Friday morning). Although BrickFair is open to the public from 11-4 on Saturday and Sunday, the talks are only open to people who are exhibiting their own Lego works, especially since my talk is on the setup day and not on a public day.
If you are around the northern Virginia or Washington D.C. area this weekend, come out and see all the creations on display. And if you are exhibiting, I hope you’ll consider coming out hear me speak if you think my topic is interesting. To get a more in depth view of what BrickFair is all about, you can check out my recap from last year. And if you are at BrickFair, be sure to come by and say hi even if you don’t come hear me speak.
