Some booths at Maker Faire were showing off projects that were a cross between technology and art. Here were our 3 favorites.
This half-scale arcade game console plays any MAME game you want to install on it. Takes up way less room than a full-size console. Cost is $2000.
This handmade piece of jewelry that looks like a 2-D camera etched in wood is actually a real camera that shoots 3.5MB jpgs and HD video. Gorgeous. Cost is $150. Check out the designer, Olivia Barr, and her other projects.
Custom Pinball Machine
Dave Gaskill, who is based in Rhode Island, makes custom pinball machines. He had a Night of the Living Dead machine at Maker Faire that was extraordinary. If you want your own custom machine made, cost will be $5000-$10,000 depending on options. Which is amazingly inexpensive for this one-of-a-kind piece of art. I highly encourage you to check out the website.
