Today is Rayne's birthday but we decided to celebrate it in advanced (on Easter Sunday) because 22 is a weekday so I cannot spend the entire day with him because of work. Rayne has been counting down days 'til his birthday since last month. Last Sunday, he didn't expect to receive anything because his mind was set on the 22nd and it somehow added another element to our surprise. His reaction was another priceless moment! Watch the video to see his reaction. :) 

After flying his #quadcopter around the park in Ayala, we headed down to Pizza Hut for dinner. +Hannah Almira Amora told the staff that it's Rayne's birthday so a surprise birthday song and ice cream was coming and Rayne didn't expect it again. He thought it was for someone else. It was a Happy Easter indeed! To our Langga Rayne, *Happy 7th #birthday! You truly deserve the gifts and surprises! ;-) *

" +Maker Faire is a place for old and young, professional and hobbyists who are interested in “making” every kind of things. May it be art, technology, interaction, sculptures, robots and much much more."

If you are interested in technology, robotics, 3D printers, SBCs, electronics, open source hardware and software, IoT, innovation, invention, creativity, hacking, makerspace, hackerspace, DIY, rapid prototyping, quadcopters, multicopters, gesture recognition, sensors, image processing, computer vision, smart devices, workshops, dev kits, interaction design, startups, then you will enjoy the 500+ photos in this album. 

Maker Faire Shenzhen is very well organized. There were an estimated 30,000 attendees. There were helpful signs everywhere and the event was just awesome! Even the rain didn't stop everyone. I just haven't attended the forums because it was already full when I registered. If you're an engineer, hacker, maker, hobbyist, enthusiast, inventor, then Maker Faire is an event you shouldn't miss.

Yesterday as I was looking at the signs to help me head over to Generator v1.2 Conference { http://generatorconf.com/ } at Shenzhen University, a very friendly lady approached and told me that she's heading to that direction too. She was bringing a big box so I offered to carry it for her on our way to the conference. Little did I know that she is Amanda Williams, the co-founder of Fabule Fabrications and I was actually holding Clyde - a beautiful hackable home lamp. She was one of the awesome speakers yesterday and her startup Fabule also has a booth at Maker Faire Shenzhen. Fabule is one of the hardware startups accepted at +HAXLR8R. 'Clyde' is almost done and probably 1-2 months from now they will start shipping, I believe. Watch the video to know more about Clyde and Fabule Fabrications.

Generator Conference v1.2 was all about Lean Hardware Startup in a box. The speakers are entrepreneurs, hackers, makers, and investors. It was great to learn that the hardware renaissance is here and Shenzhen is and will be a big part of that ecosystem because of what is has to offer in terms electronics manufacturing capabilities and supply chain which is very fast, scalable, and affordable. That is the reason why the rest of world is coming to the hub of global makers and to the center of electronics manufacturing. 

A Hardware Startup today is not purely hardware alone. It is a mix of Hardware and Software (embedded systems/firmware, mobile applications, web services, data analytics, etc.). Hardware is the new Software. 

Zach Hoeken, co-founder of Makerbot, said that if we want to make it big, there are opportunities in the following areas: 
(1) Non-Invasive Brain Computer Interfaces
(2) 3D Printing of Buildings
(3) Pretty much anything robotic
(4) Self-driving cars
(5) Artificial Intelligence

Finally had the chance to visit +SeeedStudio. Our PCB prototypes were fabricated here and they are now heading to Cebu for mounting. Thank you Raymond for the warm welcome and for the tour. Your office is beautiful, by the way.

Seeed is heaven for Makers, hobbyists, tinkerers, enthusiasts, engineers, and professionals. Even if you just have an idea but don't know how to implement it, Seeed will help you realize it. See you guys next week at Maker Faire Shenzhen! :-)
