The Worlds Only Motorized Carry-On
We don’t have a crystal ball, but we do have an epic lineup of pioneers speaking on the future of our world. The main stage speaker series goes all day Saturday and Sunday- over 40 talks in total. These 18 minute talks are first come first seated. If you want to ask questions, there’s a small group Q&A after they get off stage. Keep checking here for new speakers.
Meet The Creators
The Creator Series at Worlds Fair Nano will welcome over forty innovators, makers, and founders to our second stage where they will share the vision and inspiration behind their success as a creator and entrepreneur. The Creator Series provides an intimate setting where our visitors will be encouraged to get to know our exhibitors through candid storytelling and open Q&A sessions throughout both days of the event.
Get hands on with interactive tech-art from the future!
Augmented Reality Art Gallery
In this art gallery of the future, the art will jump right off the walls. Moving paintings aren’t just for Hogwarts anymore.
These massive wheels of programmable LEDs will most certainly mesmerize you. Made by Christopher Schardt of LED labs, this piece can be controlled by an iPad app to create any eye-capturing design you can imagine.
Indra’s Net by Illumination Art
Imagine a multidimensional spider’s web in the early morning covered with dew drops, and every drop contains the reflection of all the other drops… And so on into infinity. Indra’s Net places this entire universe inside a tetrahedron, controlled by your fingertips and the waves of your mind.
Imagine a musical and graphical instrument that lets you play music and paint visuals simultaneously by waving your hands in the holes of a wood frame. Come to Worlds Fair Nano and imagine no more!
Food Trucks & Future Food
Step outside, and take a break from all the action. Think food trucks, future food, beer garden, and outdoor lounge!!
We have SF’s finest food trucks parked outside for lunch, snacks, and dinner too. Think lobster rolls, Philly cheese steaks, brick oven pizza, hot dumplings, ice cream, vegetarian/vegan options, and more!
Try algae bars, chewable coffee, drinkable meals, and other delectable bites from the future.
Ice Cream Tacos!?
Bring your sweet tooth and enjoy some ice cream tacos from one of SF’s favorite food trucks- Rocko’s Ice Cream Tacos!
Take a break from the future, grab a nice cold beer, have a seat at a picnic bench, and enjoy a beautiful March day in San Francisco!
Relax, recharge, and get back in there! We’ve got plenty of caffeine to keep you experiencing the future all day long.
Free Food Giveaways
The future may not be free, but you’ll find free samples galore at WFN all weekend.
