Ingenuity Fest

by Ken Burns September 15, 2012

I spent the day checking out Ingenuity Fest here in Cleveland, which is a festival of Creativity and Innovation. This was my first day of relaxing in a while after the big push to get the site finalized and get through the Kickstarter approval process – and right before the big launch on Sun night.

I’d definitely recommend checking it out if you get the chance – many artists, creators and makers were there. I also had that chance to meet up with fellow Akron Hackerspace (SYN/HAK) member and Akron U professor Markus Vogl, who was exhibiting as part of the Collider Series. One of their exhibits was to make your own personal font using gestures, which was then emailed to you as a TrueType font.

Markus introduced me to James Murray, an artist that specializes in making handmade synthesizers built around Arduino which was extremely cool. I talked a bit with a number of the other makers there (MakerGear, Cleveland Maker Space) and saw some very interesting art.
