More images from the Maker Faire from last weekend.
Power-tool drag-racing. This was well organized, loud and was attracting quite a crowd.
Here's the other ride I mentioned yesterday, where four people pedalled and another four people enjoyed the ride.
Two of the alien life form exhibits in the Silicon Death Valley hall.
Creative animated props for your next Halloween party or to scare the bejesus out of all the little kids as they trick-or-treat.
Tesla coilJacob's Ladder (thanks Brian).
There was also a huge Tesla coil in the main Expo room, but we didn't
see it turned on. Probably dims all the lights in San Mateo when they do,
so it had to have strict viewing times.
This gentleman gave a demonstration of how to make glass fish beads. Very interesting. The plastic shielding is there to prevent flying glass hurting anybody. He demonstrated that as well. Be sure to check out his website. He also had the best "business card" at the show. Little glass vials containing all the information.
Faux knights in mock combat.
Beside one of the outdoor stands, somebody had placed a chair with a piece of paper that said something like "Please don't stand on Danny Gopher". You can just see little Danny poking his head out. Then he'd pop back in, then back out again and so on. Continuously. Didn't seem to be intimidated by the crowds at all.
Once I'd taken a picture, everybody else wanted one too.
