I headed down to San Mateo for MakerFaire again this year. This time I rode down with Tom and we checked out the goings on together.
They even had a full size rocket ship
Though, since it didn’t launch up into space neither Tom or I were sure what it was good for. That’s one thing there’s no shortage of at Maker Faire, really cool stuff without any real practical use. Course there’s no shortage of useful things either. Like this, all electric Motorcycle. (in case you were wondering what to get me for my birthday- this is it:) )
There were lots of cool cars and people in interesting costumes of course,
Though the highlight of the day was the performance by Arc Attack from Texas, What could be cooler then music played by giant tesla coils with hugh sparks leaping across the stage?
We enjoyed some good BBQ and garlic fries, then purchased some mushroom kits to try growing at home before we headed out. A good day at the faire.
What is this thing? – Well, I wouldn’t get in front of it that’s for sure!
