Maker Faire 2008

Every year makers of wonderful things congregate at the Maker Faire. This year it was held on May 3 and 4 in San Mateo, California, and as expected, many interesting items were exhibited. Wired has the best coverage of the event, and includes stories on such items as:


  • A hand-built steam-powered time machine
  • A steampunk squid
  • An enormous two-seater tandem bike
  • Power Tool drag racing
  • A 17 foot Robotic Giraffe
  • A recumbent flame thrower
