So, Scott and I went to the Seattle Mini Maker Faire this past weekend and attended a presentation entitled "The Tesla Gun" (because why would you NOT go to something called "The Tesla Gun"?). Well, Rob Flickenger, the gun's maker and primary wielder, showed up a bit early, so, to kill a little bit of time, he decided to walk around and chat with the audience. While he did, I snapped some pictures that inadvertently told a story: The Four Stages Of Holding A Tesla Gun.
This weekend, Seattle welcomed the 2012 Mini Maker Faire! Only two men were brave enough to represent Woot at such an important event… but they were too expensive, so we drafted Scott and Sean.
Scott's steampunky pistols were designed by Nina Jurczynski, and after the jump, you'll get the full story about what Scott and Sean, did, thought, and saw. Warning: you might just learn something before it's done.
