If you needed a new reason to attend Maker Faire Austin, here’s a good one: instant transformation into a zombie:
Meredith Johns and Carolyn O’Hara from Hawgfly will be there with their gore cannon, which allows them to coat targets, volunteers, and pretty much anything else with convincing-looking blood. If you ask them nicely, they may use you as a target.
Oh, and here’s a poorly-edited video of me getting shot with fake gore:
I walked into Cafe Mundi (our very-tolerant Dorkbot host) to rinse my gore off, and someone thought I was actually bleeding from the head. So, if you see somebody bloody but smiling at Maker Faire Austin, ask them if they’re ok before calling the ambulance:)
