This past Saturday, October 5th, the ATOMS team packed up car and hit the road toward Loveland, Colorado for the NoCo Mini Maker Faire.
Heading into this event we were unsure what we were getting into (the team attended the flagship Maker Faire in San Mateo earlier this year) as this was NoCo’s first year. Though we didn’t know what to expect, we were very excited and our hopes were high!
When we arrived we were blown away to see that a line was already forming outside of the Rocky Mountain Center For Innovation and Technology (formally a Hewlett Packard manufacturing facility). Jayna and Ryan quickly got things setup at our shared booth with Vergent, who is our local manufacturing partner.
Our dual booth with Vergent showcased the process in which your ATOMS are produced and assembled then a live demo was given to highlight the features of each ATOM. Since we just started production we only had a few ATOMS on hand- the Battery, Knob, Accelerometer, Light Sensor, Motor & Earthquake ATOMS all made their public debut at this event.
From the moment that the doors opened until the last minutes of the event, the NoCo Mini Maker Faire was buzzing with tons of traffic and lots of energy. Event organizers told us that 3,500 tickets were sold and that roughly 4,000 people were in the building total. The vibe was stellar all day long- everyone was excited to be there!
The ATOMS team had a blast chatting with hundreds of people throughout the day and we are very excited for next year’s NoCo Mini Maker Faire (dates are still TBA). If you visited the ATOMS booth leave a comment below with your favorite NoCo Mini Maker Faire memory!
