Flaming unicorns and USB typewriters: Maker Faire NYC

Make Magazine's Maker Faire made its third trip to NYC this weekend, washing over Queens with a tsunami of creative activity.

Setting up shop in and around the New York Hall of Science, Maker Faire brought with it its usual cavalcade of robots, 3D printers, lock-picking tutorials, DIY circuit boards, and other experimental, artistic, and otherwise inspired technology and creative projects.

I certainly didn't capture everything at the event in the above slideshow, but after walking around for 3 hours this past Saturday, I'll say that I caught a reasonably representative slice of the Maker Faire at large.
