Maker Faire 2013

A Maker and his electric skateboard.

Toyota had an interesting demonstration to accompany their Electric RAV4 display.

Four bicycles harnessed to generators produced electric power which was used to drive toy cars around this track.

It really is pitiful how little electricity a human can generate on a bicycle. I think a quarter horsepower is typical (186 Watts). Which is not to diminish the fun of this display. I'd much rather push a car around a track with my efforts than power some lightbulbs.

Stand-alone dome-homes. I didn't catch the price for these, but they looked really fun.

The barest neccessities inside.

Power and water in and waste scheme.

Mobility claws were optional.

Nearby, in the south lot, Taos artist-designer Christian Ristow's Hand of Man was back this year.

This year he watched from ground level and allowed kids a chance to operate the kinetic sculpture with an elaborate waldo.

Here's a photo of a child's life being changed forever as he crushes steel appliances with one hand.

The watching crowd, moments before they were crushed to death.

The mangled remains of a stainless steel barbecue being hoisted aloft.
