Robots at Maker Faire come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny do-it-yourself gizmos to six-ton megabots. Some take humanoid form, while others perform useful functions such as backyard weeding. Many are just plain fun.
Drones also have a major presence at the event, thanks largely to the Aerial Sports League. ASL, which describes itself as "the world leader in drone sports entertainment & media," built a racecourse for flying drones and a "Drone Combat" arena.
Here's a look at some of the robotic contraptions at the 2017 Bay Area Maker Faire. You can find additional Maker Faire highlights in this piece on Printmag.com.
