Slashdot visited Fort Wayne, Indiana, during its 2013 Maker Faire
. We brought back videos of R2D2 model makers in all their bleeping glory, Mad Sasquatch Rocketry
launching rockets, and functioning home-made jet engines, which no Maker Faire should be without. Since Fort Wayne
has a strong industrial history, it is not surprising that this Maker Faire had more industrial-scale exhibits than most maker-type events Slashdot has attended. The noise level in much of the event area was industrial scale, too, which is why this video sounds the way it does. But we love large, noisy machinery, not just computers so quiet you can't hear their fans (if, indeed, they *have* fans), so we're happy to enjoy some good Industrial Sound
and check out some of Mark Phenicie
's steampunk creations now and then.
