Maker Faire 2008 Gallery

By Evan Ackerman

I’ve put together a little gallery of some of the more visually appealing (i.e. LEDs, huge flames, etc.) stuff from Maker Faire last weekend… It’s in no particular order, and most of it exists just because someone wanted it to, and not because it fulfills any purpose. But it’s unquestionably cool, so have a look at some of the pics, after the jump.

If you’ve got questions as to WTF any of these things are, post in the comments, and I’ll see what I can dig up.

    Is the main article pic supposed to be an electronic Dragon? The one with the two Lava lamps as ‘horns??”?

    It’s actually a giraffe. His name is Russell, and if you pet his nose, he says “heehee that tickles” or “that feels niiiice” in a robotic monotone.

    Maker Faire: like Burning Man that you can take the kids to, and with 400% more laser etching.

    LOVING your photos! Over at LEGENDmag, we also got a few good ones, including a sweet shot of epiphany with a fireball in her hand! And how about that giraffe? Seriously my favorite thing of the day! Got a little video too:
