Richrap visited the TCT Liveshow at the NEC and made an interesting "Maker Test" report:
So last year I visited TCT in a professional capacity with suit, shirt and tie, this year I decided to go along as a Maker – Jeans and a Woolly Jumper – general enthusiast to see what reception I would get from all these many (different sized) companies looking to sell machines for the next desktop industrial revolution to the 'general public'
I'm calling my dress code the 'maker test' would I get any attention at all from these companies?, I'm sad to say generally most of the companies failed, ignoring me for people in suits that actually had very little interest in their product offerings.
Check out here which company failed the 'Maker test' and how many companies passed.
