yes bring the version 2 boards, and all the parts to build them.  i 
probably want one.  what does it do again?

we have a video magnifier so it's easy to solder tiny things, and other 
people can watch and learn (unlike a normal microscope) because the image 
is on a large lcd monitor.

it's the same makerfaire.  the first year i brought my car, which runs on 
veggie oil, and when it was over i took all the used fry oil from the 
junk food vendors and poured it right into the tank and drove home on it.
