This has to be it, right? Assuming you're not a gearhead, the simple existence of a six-foot-tall robot inexplicably washing an old car is geeky enough. If you love cars you also notice the presence of an '02. As soon as I saw this photo I had to figure out the meaning behind it.
Charles Guan, recent MIT grad, is certainly a certifiable tinkerer. Where I see a skateboard and a snowblower engine he sees a portable off-road skateboard. Completely DIY, it got noticed at the World Maker Faire New York on Saturday.
