Lumarca (one of the child projects of the Wiremap), had a great showing at Maker Faire, New York, this past weekend. The project got a lot of positive attention, including 3 Blue Ribbons (I guess each editor of the magazine gets to give out one). The project also claimed the "Red Bull Create the Future" award. It totally took Matt and me by surprise when a couple of Red Bull representatives came by to shake our hands. What exactly is this prize? A MakerBot!
We're taking the momentum that Maker Faire has generated and using it to fuel our fundraising campaign. The funds we raise will go towards developing a DIY kit and doing research and development for bigger and better volumetric renderers.
Please consider donating if you want to see a new tomorrow for volumetric renderers:
