At World Maker Faire, you might see a robot solving a Rubik’s Cube. Or you might watch visitors making full 360-degree circles in a swing while, in another pavilion, people dressed as mice tap dance around a life-size version of the game “Mouse Trap.”
The event, which started five years ago in San Mateo, Calif., captures the intersection of high-tech engineering, arts and crafts, and the carnival culture of the Burning Man festival. By blending the futuristic with the anachronistic, it provides a common ground for digital media gurus, forensic scientists, backyard hobbyists and people who make all kinds of things.
