The coolest projects at Maker Faire 2013

Maker Faire is an annual festival that celebrates everything do-it-yourself. The San Francisco Bay Area's best inventors, creators, and designers show off their latest projects in a science fair for all ages, but it feels more like a tech carnival. This show has everything: Tesla coils! Robots! Fire! Bikes of all shapes and sizes! In between checking out exhibits, you can make your own jewelry or learn how to use a soldering iron--all in one day. Here are some of my favorite highlights that I saw at this year's fair.
