We watched from our corner as the space around us went from dense to crowded, finally to a madhouse. On our left was neighbor booth Mathworks with an aerial drone plus Kinect rock-paper-scissors. To the right was Pinventions with custom pinball machines. With Waterfire, Foo Fest and RI Maker Faire all happening at once, I could only envy those who had the time and the stamina to navigate the entire showcase, full to the brim and overflowing with talent and imagination. And the kids loved it. Everywhere you could see them, eyes wide with discovery, tiny hands sensing and learning as they played while the evening wore on.
