Maker Faire was a whirlwind of an experience, and here are a few highlights from our trip. Above is Wayne Strattman’s Nixie Rex, a giant scale handmade seven segment nixie clock. Each tube is about two feet tall. A “normal” sized nixie clock is on the table in front of it for scale.
This constellation quilt was made with glow in the dark thread by Haptic Lab.
Sometimes the simplest activities are the most satisfying. Contruction Kids let everyone leave their mark on Maker Faire by hammering into the wall of nails.
The Power Racing Series was joyfully providing great entertainment for the crowds.
Gertie the robot’s creator Alonso is demonstrating with an oversized model how the frame inside the squishy case can move around to make her jump in different directions.
There were many memorable moments from Maker Faire, and the ones we managed to capture with our camera are in this flickr set.
