For two days you can get a gander at robots, flame shooters, or solar-powered mechanical sculptures. It’s pretty much the coolest for-adults show that you will ever attend. Plus, musician, composer, and founder of the New York Theremin Society, Dorit Chrysler, will be showing people how to play the theremin, an electronic instrument that is controlled without physical contact. Cool. As. Hell.
