Microsoft has a ton of software geeks around; In this video with Larry Larsen of Channel 9, we see a number of DIY hardware projects, including:

  • A handmade laser light show projector built by an engineering in the Windows SkyDrive team.
  • A 3D Face Scanner built in a week using an stepper motor from an old floppy drive, a Microsoft LifeCam, and a customer array of LEDs.
  • MakeMayhem - a library that makes it easy for non-programs to rig up their own project
