I love Maker Faire. I've had a blast with makers and their wild creations in San Francisco and in Austin, but this past weekend, Make's traveling DIY circus came right to my backyard here in NYC. It's a circus that happens to include a pulse-jet-powered merry-go-round, seen here, among other delights. Which is the right kind of circus.
