Photo Flurry 120 – Electric Fun at Maker Faire 2013
Maker Faire is one of the very few Bay Area events that I’ve actually manged to attend since moving here six months ago. It was a lot less conference-centric than I had hoped, but as far as fairs go, it was great. Exhibitors were all super-friendly and genuinely loved talking about their goods, plus I got to catch up with friends, so – whee! And of course I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures amidst all the clamorous excitement, though experiencing definitely took precedence over documenting – there was just so much to marvel at.
My sweet new ride.
Tesla coils + electric guitar = amazing.
Children dancing whilst being zapped inside a Faraday cage, thus safe.
We all took turns getting zapped by the loveliest of mad scientists grasping a Van de Graaph generator, which produced roughly a million volts, but with a very low current.
I don’t know who this kid was, but his expressions were the best.
This was actually quite impressive – all the fish and lobsters danced (and sang) in synch!
The charred remains of a piano.
Ran into Mitch near the giant MouseTrap.
Manually-operated, salivating cunnilingus machine?
This massive wolf sculpture spat fire via remote. I got to push the button.
Gašper remembered he can’t play piano, but did get to play a guitar that used empty oil drums as amps.
Possibly swans roaming a desolate stretch of lawn on our way back.
