As if it weren’t hot enough in New York last weekend the team behind Heavy Meta brought more heat with the fire breathing dragon art car fresh/still dusty from Burning Man.
Seriously it was so dang hot and Fall just started.
Okay so what the heck is Maker Faire you ask? I’ll assume you asked. In summary the event is a giant show and tell with sprinkles of a county fair, science fair and all fun.
This is not the dragon’s first Maker Faire appearance of course, a few months back the art car was set up at the Detroit edition of the unique science event. Heavy Meta was invited to New York for World Maker Faire to come together as creators, meet other makers, and apparently scare the sh*t out of kids with fire.
FUN FACT: The fire system is female created, and run.
The two day event which took place at the New York Hall Of Science also featured La Machine, a Starburst gifting Kermit, and swarms of curious children ready to become makers themselves (seen below: Heavy Meta team member Matt Von Wilde showing his creations to mini makers)
Next up in the Heavy Meta Maker Faire tour is Pittsburgh,PA on October 14th and 15th!
