Maker Faire New York is taking place September 29 and 30, and there will be over 500 exhibits showcasing creativity and innovation in technology, craft, science, fashion, art, food and more. Here’s just one of the exhibits I’m looking forward to checking out: “Severed Hand Bop-It” by Sarah Schoemann and Jason Schapiro. Here’s the description:

An Arduino powered plush toy with morbidity to spare! “Severed Hand Bop-It” offers a tactile and quirky take on the classic ‘Simon’ game. With 5 “soft” switches, sounds and LED feedback, it’s sure to provide hours of grisly fun!
