And when you do that job and now beautiful as they should be. -- here to show off. I also mean robots called -- only term we use kinetic sculpture my particular approach they have is to use only things that I can find -- covers ukulele. The whole head is a voltage meter that's been flipped upside down and -- out. This one's name is doubtful because that's the center line reading on this page here. I know the story behind how you got to come to create this IE disassembled typewriters exclusively. And I reassemble limited human figures. -- -- -- on -- I don't well little wired things together. It -- typewriters. And reassemble it. This is the plasma drive of the Reagan got the rockets -- It's -- the forty foot tall retro style rockets at its which is currently installed on the pier San Francisco -- science back. Is -- the platform for studying a high voltage phenomenon called but I electric barrier that -- as it turns this crackles with with high -- electricity and -- viewed Apple as right now -- off. Can't turn on the high voltage here not because -- By the way mainly emitted into it requires darkness and -- -- him and intimate affair but there's some great -- at videos up on my web page. -- -- -- -- It's kind of fun I never done anything.

Eric and Donald reflect on their time at Maker Faire 2011 and encounters with robots, propane, and high-voltage sculpture, and wacky automobiles.
Sharon Vaknin, Donald Bell, and Eric Franklin cover the latest tech DIYs, insider secrets, and how-tos.
Do robots make good bartenders? CNET's Donald Bell and Eric Franklin investigate the cutting edge of cocktail robotics at BarBot 2011 in San Francisco. They meet robots for mixing a Kamikaze in zero-gravity, a methodical Martini-bot, and an apocalypse-ready robot that makes a vegan White Russian.
Donald and Eric receive a record number of viewer emails, with tons of great suggestions. Stephen unveils his epic intro for Eric's Geek News segment. And of course, there's no shortage of Crave-worthy gadgets to talk about, including the Sony S tablet, a Sony head-mounted display, self-inflating tires, and a fan that might eat your cat.
Jasmine picks up the slack on Donald's sick day and gets fab producer Jason Howell and "huge" CNET Labs editor Eric Franklin to cohost the latest Crave podcast. We scoured Crave to bring only the best gems, and this week, we came up with a luxurious $15K speaker from Bowers & Wilkes, some Twitter-friendly dairy cows, a gadget porn crackdown, and the latest Japanese auto innovation . Also, no Crave podcast would be complete without a little something gross to cap it off. Tune in to find out what.
Donald Bell goes toe to toe with the Dell Streak while Eric Franklin takes bets on the winner.

This week, Donald and Jasmine bask in the glory of an Eric Franklin-less Crave, ogling a glimpse of the future in the form of new holographic technology. Also on our radar at the moment: a new type of grill that goes behind your teeth, some bus stop distractions for our fellow San Franciscans, and super dangerous flaming gloves that no meth head should ever possess. And of course no show would be complete without some excitement over beer, in this case a super speedy bottom-filling beer dispensing system. Finally, we stuff our faces--both real and ceramic--with cookies, pizza, and a spectacular-looking torta.
