At the Atlanta Maker Faire this year, I stopped by many booths, talked to many people, and learned a lot about their projects. There were, however, a few exhibits that I saw that either need no explanation, or I just didn’t get one. Fortunately, I took pictures of a lot of them, as seen in the slideshow below.
Some of my favorites included the truly wacky, like the blue horned thing that I saw wandering around the street with a human passenger inside. Also, there was a guy that had (what I hope was a replica of) a large CRT television set on his head. There was also some sort of model of Abraham Lincoln that said whatever you texted to it.

Naturally, there was also an assortment of 3d printers, but it seems that these took somewhat of a backseat to multi-rotor aircraft when compared to Faires that I’ve been to before. Possibly it was the outdoor environment that facilitated this, but I think that hobby has become more popular and accessible in the last few years as well.
Finally, there were some living things at the event, including planters and some exotic-looking mushrooms. A guy who was definitely not shy about being photographed was there with a large snake, as well as a woman with what looked like a possum. On the other side of the spectrum, I was able to get a picture of an adorable puppy below someone’s exhibit. Maybe I’m not adventurous enough, but I found that much more interesting than the other two.
