Continuing on with more photos taken outside of the various exhibition halls.
Radio controlled metal spheres. A home-made miniature golf course (with realistic par settings for most holes) and a passenger pedal-powered bus (with an annoying guy on the megaphone near the back).
In the Steampunk area, long lines built up for Neverwas Haul.
"This steam-powered car is made of a 100-year-old dog cart, a steam cleaner tubing coil, a machined "sliding-D" valve, and steam-rated plumbing left over from the previous century."
The cupcakes were back, but due to the huge crowds, were regulated to being outside this year. I also got to see inside the S&M cupcake.
A couple activities for young kids. Shoot your rockets straight up and see if you can bonk somebody on the way down. Last year it was glueing pens on an old Merc. This years it's Lego bricks on an old jeep.
I'm not sure what this was supposed to be. A framework for a new kind of tent? A very insecure storage area? A New-Age play pen? We also have a tribute to our Govenator.
And finally. What do you do if you have a large surplus of old computer parts? You build your own Death Star.
