Electricity you can SEE and FEEL
Bay Area Maker Faire 2012
Mike -- Hair -- Wow!
Jack SparX aka KJ6JD shows wireless light to a young attendee.
Hams (Radio Amateurs) ruled at our booth. Three of our presenters are licensed active Hams!
Below is Mike - NS6Q - ready to turn you into a spark gap transmitter.
Our favorite dandelion antenna, NW6Q is also shocking attendees.
Nannette has the "do" of the day as she reaches out to share electrons.
Our booth was well staffed and well equipped this year. We had four Van De Graaff Generators, two 12 inch and two 20 inch, built by Fred Graff, a fun physics teacher in Manteca. We also had my old Jacob's Ladder, and a nice table top Tesla coil by Tom Blitch. We had three plasma displays, one for hands on playing in front, and two krypton gas Larry Albright creations on the back bench. I brought my Hypnotron, and Gaspo displayed it and his electric poi project next door to me.
