Maker's Fair

On Saturday, Haber, Sam, and I went to the 2nd annual Maker's Faire. It was pretty inspiring. Its a giant fair which is all about DIY projects, from the simple to the very complex. Some cool stuff I saw:

Some cupcake bike vehicals:
A cool homemade kinetic maze:
Scary combat vehicals:
Cool objects that literally can not be made using tools. These were all created using 3d printers.

A giant reproduction of the mousetrap.

A robotic scarf dancer. This guy made some INCREDIBLE kinetic robots.

A trippy interactive projection system.

A knitting drummer.

Then Haber and I meyandered our way to Shoreline to catch Bjork. It was a pretty intense show sonically and visually, but totally sweet. The coolest part (besides her voice) was the rad electronics that one her crew was using during the set:

Yes, a truly awesome day... thanks for the company, General!

I looked for the link to the info about that, umm, thing he was playing. Couldn't find it. Sigh.
