As Ryan said, Maker Faire was extraordinary. The ExplOratorium booth was a mixture of high and low tech wonders, simple ideas spun out into marvelous directions. Charles’s fog pool was eerie and magical; the concept if fairly simple: fog is swirled and a green laser visualizes the swirls and turbulence within. However, the exhibit was, I understand, technically challenging to make.
On the other end of the spectrum, there was a homemade battery prayer wheel, which was technically primitive, but because of that had an equally mesmerizing effect.
Also, Adam’s mechanical clock had crowds waiting for the big moment at 12:59.
I can’t wait for next year, I hope to be part of it again!
