Maker Faire: Steampunk vs. Mad Scientists?

Sorry this post runs a little off-theme...  I went to the MakerFaire at the Queens Hall of Science and had a ball at the Red Bull sponsored party.  I was invited by the fabulous event designer Adam Aleksander who has created wild events all over NYC (recently Gilt City's  big haunted prom for Halloween).  The party hosted cocktail-making robots that shot flaming absinthe, smoked from dry ice, or lit up neon tubes.  

During the evening, inventors were putting finishing touches on souped-up vintage motorcycles, rocket-propelled carnival rides and electrified fashion.  The most interesting part of the night's entertainment was the Tesla-coils zapping away during the concert...
