Gadgets, geeks and carnival rides at Maker Faire
Artists, inventors and other do-it-yourselfers gather in Austin to show off their latest hacked gadgets and creations.
Artists, inventors and other do-it-yourselfers are gathering this weekend in Austin, Texas, to show off their latest hacked gadgets and creations at the Maker Faire.
Attendees of the event will get a chance to see some of the innovative exhibits--and maybe even tool around with them if they're lucky.
Some highlights at the event will include a life-size version of the Mousetrap game, the "Cyclofuge," a carnival-style bicycle ride, and the "Star Wheel," which made its first appearance at Burning Man 2004.
