This weekend thousands of geeks crowded into the San Mateo fairgrounds for Maker Faire, a celebration of crafts, engineering, science projects and the Do-It-Yourself projects put on by Craft and Make Magazines. For those of you who have never attended the event it's a mixture of the world's largest science fair, a craft festival with a mini dose of Renaissance Faire (seriously, there were people jousting and dressed up in corsets, though I am still not 100 percent sure why). I will be sharing stories about some of my favorite geeks in attendance all week, but here is a little teaser of some of the most exciting exhibits at the event.
