Maker Faire 2008 - Part 4
By user12607856 on May 08, 2008
Two shots of a steampunk
motorcycle scooter (thanks Corey) and two electric bikes.
There was a camera providing a stereoscopic 3D effect, so I took a couple pictures of myself. Grab your anaglyph glasses for best viewing.
Robbie was there too, but a little less animated.
Winner of the cutest robot at the show (by far) is the Pleo. What you can't tell from the photo is that it's gently moving around (like it's trying to get comfy) and making endearing little noises. Also a picture of one that had been flayed.
This is what I want for Christmas. Or I'll take it as a gift. I'm not proud. Some examples of what you can make with it. Similar CNC PC controlled router for foam.
And finally a miscellaneous set. A really nice home made, computer driven etch-a-sketch.
Outside they had a huge "pond" setup for robotic model warships to shoot at each other and fight to the death (more info). There was a large battleship under several inches of water still shooting away (shells now becoming torpedoes). The top part had come off. I guess the boards inside must of been waterproof although they didn't look it.
In the Dark Room there were several POV machines.
Last batch of photos tomorrow.
