In Maker Faire Bay Area 2016, while I was talking with someone they asked me where I am from and just as I said ‘Turkey’ there were two people walking past my booth and they turned out to be Turkish. One of them was from the biggest newspaper in Turkey and after a short talk […]
I started to learn coding on my own! Until now, I didn’t have much have interest in coding. But in Maker Faire I saw all the awesome projects made with Arduino, Raspberry Pi etc. and I got interested in coding. When I came back to Turkey, my school was still going on and I had […]
The Lover Heart was my first design on Thingiverse. To be honest, it was not particularly good. It was boxy and the electronics did not work properly, but overall I really liked the idea. So now that I started to do a bit of programming and that I am more experienced in Autodesk Fusion 360, […]
Recently I heard about an open source electric car. Its called the OSVehicle. It is a platform for people to create their own shells on a ready chassis kit and make their own electric cars. With the news of countries banning petrol and diesel vehicles in near future, EV’s will be mainstream. And being a […]
The Maker Faire Bay Area was probably my best maker experience so far. And being my first Maker Faire it felt absolutely amazing. Everything about it was a memory I will never forget. So this is my summary of Maker Faire Bay Area 2016. To start it off, I reached an audience of 100 people […]

2 Days before Maker Faire starts, we went to the old prison Alcatraz. It was a really interesting place and I really liked it. We spent most of our time there that day but I think it was worth it. If you happen to visit San Francisco you should most definitely check it out.
On Tuesday, we went to San Francisco and had a walk in the port. The piers and just the city itself was amazing. There we went to Fisherman’s Wharf and we just cruised around San Francisco with the car. We also drove on Lombard Street.
I did not have time to write a daily blog because I got extremely tired to the end of the days thanks to jet lag, so I am writing it now. On Monday, after we landed in America, we first went to rent a car. We actually rented a Fiesta but to my luck, there […]
Right now I am on my way to San Francisco for the Maker Faire and I have a long journey of 12 hours on the plane. While in America I will do a daily blog including places I go to and the Maker Faire itself. Unfortunately since I have an entrance exam after I return […]
