Wondering where your jet pack is? Look around the family-friendly Maker Faire this weekend in Queens. The show floor abounds with creativity: robots of all types, 3-D printers and their increasingly complex output, electronic marvels, and more. In the auditorium, the world’s foremost inventors will peek into the future, while science demonstrations run constantly. The spirit of playful invention results in the Game of Drones flying competition and a life-size game of Mousetrap. Who wouldn’t get caught up in this?
