Enormously life-sized Thumby Wars should be on everyone’s holiday list.

A bit of late note, but at Maker Faire earlier this month, I caught a glimpse of one of the more ridiculous contraptions at the fest (and this is a place that had an alley dedicated to steampunk.) The winner of the 72-hour hackathon Red Bull Creation, Thumby Wars is the brainchild of the Maker Twins of Scottsdale, Arizona, designers and identical twins Mike and Pat Murray. It made its debut and as you can see, it’s a handful.
