Maker Faire 2008 - Part 3
By user12607856 on May 07, 2008
My favorite glass bead maker Ralph McCaskey from Nightside Studios was back and giving more demonstrations. It looks like he's got Laser Vision in the second photo.
Purl Drums is an experiment intersecting two activities: drumming and knitting. For me, the experiment was a failure. From the looks he was getting from his fellow crafters, I don't think he was making too many friends.
The Bent Objects guy was back, with a piece of his work exhibited right outside the rest rooms.
Big Foot was also spotted.
It was impossible to get a clear picture of this from 20 feet away. Try to guess what the picture is made of before you get a closeup of the second image.
The Linux Astronomy project had a nice stand. Also see their website.
There were numerous examples of Steampunk at the show. This was one of the better ones. More Steampunk here.
Duncan got to try manipulating the camera (via radio control) attached to a kite that's normally used for aerial photography. There were numerous examples of pictures they'd taken on display. Check out their Flickr collective.
