"Poke an eye out"


"Void your warranty, violate a user agreement, fry a circuit, blow a fuse, poke an eye out". I arrived in California a week too late to experience this year's Maker Faire. But this preview video gives a good taste of this startling phenomenon, there's a DVD on sale already, and the site is pretty extensive too. Lethal-looking devices abound: the swelling crowds don't wait for "permission to play".
