A few photos from the Maker Faire 2010:
A large, fire-breathing contraption. There were buttons all around the base to blow flames out of various spots. Fun for the whole family! (On a related note, Oakland’s the Crucible had a huge display area showcasing their fire arts.)
There were a number of Art Cars on display. These cars are all road-worthy and quite a sight.
Applied Kinetic Arts had a display area, and this was one of the featured pieces. You can see there’s a crank to operate the tongue so that it can lick its way to the center of the Tootsie Pop. :)
There was SO much more — it was a pretty overwhelming, sensory-overload sort of experience. There was music, food, games, crafting displays and opportunities, local gardening and food producer stands, robotics, and about a billion other things. We loved this 3D projection dome from Japan — better than Avatar! Crazy good fun.
