The Toronto Mini Maker Faire leveled up this year to the Maker Festival, a week long maker celebration with events around the city that wrapped up with exhibits and workshops at the Toronto Reference Library over the weekend. Here are a few pictures I took from the event:

There were plenty of robots on hand at the Maker Festival. They varied in size, from table-top Lego robots, to this metal mobile robot that could pick up tennis balls off the floor.

See you next year, Maker Festival!
