Mobile Disco Comes to Maker Faire This Weekend

by Gary Pini
The annual Maker Faire returns to the New York Hall of Science in Queens this weekend. Brooklyn artist Thomas Stevenson -- whose rooftop sleepovers were recently featured in the New York Times -- will be roaming around the fair with his DiscoTransformer. The mobile party-in-a-box looks sort of like a food cart, until it opens up to become a disco, with booming bass and a mirror ball. Check out some pics below and, if you haven't been out to the Faire, here's what to expect: "Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors." Also look for a LEGO-art piece by The Art of the Brick's Nathan Sawaya called "Melting Man." The Maker Faire is open from 10am-7pm on Saturday, September 21, and from 10am-6pm on Sunday.
