Forget about Frankenstein. Robot Resurrection is a 30-foot-tall, human-operated, articulating automaton whose composition is 95 percent recycled airplane parts. The brainchild of Shane Evans, this android is heading to Queens and bringing plenty of colleagues, such as Mechanical Horse, a stainless steel contraption with more than 100 bearings, laser-cut sprockets, 30 feet of chain, and 23 articulating joints, and Life Size Mousetrap, a 16-piece, 50,000-pound interactive kinetic sculpture.
World Maker Faire 2015 takes place at the New York Hall of Science on Saturday and Sunday. Part geek fest, part DIY rage, part new product showcase, this sixth annual extravaganza celebrates cleverness, craftsmanship, creativity, and countless contraptions. More than 500 makers are expected to display their latest projects to more than 50,000 enthusiasts. More information, a list of some expected favorites, and another photo are on the jump page.
