Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth, a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.”

Noite Europeia dos Investigadores 2011

This event will be open to the public and everyone will be able to test our RiftCycles.

Me and João Morais, from Overflow Interactive, we will also be in a Talk entitled “How I’ve built the RiftCycles, Two Cycles Tron movie replicas.” where we will explain the entire process of creating this unique project.

For those who haven’t had the opportunity to experience the RiftCycles at SAPO Codebits, you don’t want to miss this event that will take place for the first time in Portugal. The entry is FREE but you still need to get your ticket. You’re advised to check for updates on the event calendar regularly to check the latest news.

The RiftCycles Project @ Sapo Codebits 2014

This was one hell of a ride! We had one month to complete this project and it was hard to imagine it would be possible…but we made it!

We were able to present this unique project to the Sapo Codebits audience and it was big! A huge success. People were amazed with the experience and they really felt what it is to be inside the world of Tron. Thank you to everyone who tried it and gave us their thoughts and opinions!
