We had a great time this weekend at the w.a.v.e.s festival at the Detroit River. Friday and Saturday evening, the riverfront was lit up from Janette Ave to the Ambassador Bridge with displays, booths, art, food, and music. Hackforge had nonstop visitors to our booth which featured a hand-crank SpokePOV bike, our Makerbot 3D printer, and a cymatics rig. Our highly interactive booth was the source of lots of noise, questions, and discussion on the future of technology.
We also brought together electronic nerds and bike nerds with SpokePOVs. On Friday night, we stopped by Bike Friendly Windsor Essex‘s AGM at City Cyclery and attached the custom display LEDs to three bikes before their Night Lights Ride.
Big props to Chris Deschamps, Nik Steel, Paul Anderson, AmberJoy Kouvalis, Aaron Mavrinac, and Phil Aylesworth for helping out during the festival.
