Wacky inventors, wild do-it-yourselfers and whimsical artists put their imaginations on display over the weekend at the Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif.
Viewing their creations convinces me that there are two items a person must possess to exhibit at the Maker Faire: incredible creativity and vast amounts of free time.
Among the off-the-wall darlings was a rat costume for the Roomba vacuum cleaner. On the destructive creativity side of things, Survival Research Labs demonstrated robot fire power. And, honestly, who wouldn't want a robot-drawn chariot?
While I'd love to own the chariot, what I really crave is the creativity and free time these amazing people must possess in order to pull this off. I'm in awe.
