It’s a great feeling to look at something a maker brings to the Faire and know it’s going to be awesome even though they’re still putting the pieces together. I found this over and over today as I walked around the grounds for Maker Faire New York. Here are some that I liked the most, and I hope you like them too.
New York's own hackerspace brought these LED modules that are part of a large multiplayer game. They're controlled by this old video editor, a teletype machine, toy piano, and more.
Young makers Andrew Ke and Matthew Tung show off the FlowX26, a giant light-up floor made for interactive games.
Ford at Maker Faire
Brandon Regner designed and built Ford's display, featuring vintage drill presses employed as printers, and a stereo system made of old transistor radios. Here he is sawing away before the Faire starts.
Ted Carancho from AeroQuad displays his copters. I can't wait to see them in the air this weekend.
Life Size Mousetrap
It's great to see the Life Size Mousetrap four months later on an opposite coast. I can track the path of the ball in my mind already.
Erik Herman from XRaise Cornell
This guitar has a striped belt sander that creates a strobe effect so you can see the strings vibrate.
Fred Kahl's Scan-a-Rama
Rotating platform plus Kinect and 3D printer = full-body models!
