World Maker Faire: Last Days to Buy Advance Tickets!


I know you’re all sure you’re coming to World Maker Faire New York on September 25th and/or 26th, so why not save a little money and time by getting your tickets in advance? Save $5 on a day ticket or $15 on a weekend ticket by ordering them before midnight tomorrow night (September 15), and don’t spend the event waiting in line. We always say Maker Faire will be amazing, but this time you’re in for several super special treats:

Diana Eng’s Technology Fashion Show

In 1964 the World’s Fair was a showcase of innovation. On September 25th, 2010 at World Maker Faire, Diana Eng will present the latest innovation in fashion. At 2pm, Models will walk the runway in a high-end fashion show, featuring designs that are electronic, shape transforming, motion sensing, and biomimetic.

World Maker Faire showcases the best of do-it-yourself science and technology, making it the perfect setting for Diana Eng’s technology-based fashion and runway show. Included in the show is a dress inspired by bioluminescent jellyfish and fabricated with electroluminescent wire. Also featured are clothes with deployable structures mimicking opening leaves.

The Madagascar Institute presents: Chariot Races!

Chariot races! Jankety, cobbled together, dangerous-to‐even‐look‐at chariots, pedal‐powered versus jet‐powered versus people‐pulling‐a‐rebuilt‐Idiotarod‐shopping cart versus a motorcycle-with‐minor‐variations smashing and crashing and racing around a tightly‐turning track in heats of four, all for crappy trophies but tons of glory, admiration, and envy at your boundless intestinal fortitude, brilliant creativity, and clever use of limited building skills.

There will be three rounds of races on Saturday throughout the day with a final round of races on Sunday. The races will take place in the Rocket Roundabout (very centrally located at World Maker Faire/NY SCI) and is going to be an audience favorite.

Pictured above is another fabulous attraction coming to World Maker Faire NY: the Thundersteed Jet Ponies merry-go-round.
