A Few Neat Things from Maker Faire 2007

I was going to do a whole write-up on Maker Faire 2007 but there’s just not enough time in a day. Here’s what I’ve got…

Puppy Mover Monorail – geeky cuteness.sp_a0274.jpg

Make your own Handheld Animated Butterflies – by Roger Sonntag. He came in from upstate New York to show these off. It uses an electromagnet to shoot butterflies or rings up a pole. The butterflies are actually pretty neat.sp_a0277.jpgsp_a0278.jpg
