This life-sized statue of Halo‘s Master Chief, which has some damage to the knee and a detached arm, was de-accessioned by the Computer History Museum. They were happy to find a home with us for it, and we’re pleased to have Master Chief with us.
Along with spring flowers, May always brings Maker Faire to San Mateo. This year we brought “The Evolution of the Console Controller” exhibit that we had at PAX Prime 2012 and expanded it with a section on rhythm controllers, including a playable Dance Dance Revolution on a professional quality metal mat, and Parappa the Rapper.
If you missed the Evolution of the Console Controller exhibit at PAX Prime 2012, you can now see it here online! We’ve taken all the label text and photos of the artifacts and used them to create a permanent online exhibit. Visit it today, and tell us what you think!
