More images from the Maker Faire from last weekend
Duncan playing with a chaotic pendulum.
The new Sony book reader. The Sony Librie has been out in Japan for quite a while. I was expecting a US equivalent very soon after that. Seems they went back and redesigned it to be much simpler. More like a book. I like the electronic ink technology. I was underwhelmed by the size and the (small) amount of information you got on each page. The sales critter was gushing on about all the classics you could instantly get for it. Well duh. Just go to places like Project Gutenburg and they are available to anyone. Oh, and while you are there, check out the Project Gutenberg Science Fiction CD.
Virtual Volleyball and Virtual Art. Something you can really throw yourself into.
What to do with all those K'nex on a dreary weekend.
A self-pedal-powered carnival ride. There was another where four people pedalled and another four people enjoyed the ride.
A small collection of LEGO Mindstorms NXT robots.
A wireframe-coated papier mache dragon.
Here's the Bent Objects guy I blogged about last Friday.
Some Doom variant being played on a top-of-the-line Dell gaming PC in the Microsoft hall with a special keyboard. The guy was good. I've never really watched any of these one-person shooter games being played by an expert before. Yes I know. I need to get out more.
