My fave, in emerging technologies, (or what was left of it). 

they took a looped maya render, took the geometry, then transferred the geometry to a 3D printer that printed each frame onto a round platter that spun. So they spun this platter, then shot it with a video camera with a shutter speed of 1/24, so that the strobing was enough to hold out the orignal animation perfectly, so when you looked at the resulting readling video feed, it looked like grainy stopmotion video of something that begain as a 3d virtual maya render. 

Very cool, inventive, and relatively cheap.

Actually, best-of-show was in the art show -- the snail-mail.  Yes, a  
real live, actual snail with a bit of electronics glued to its  
shell.  You beam an email message to the electronics, and when the  
snail perchance happens near the receiving antenna in its terrarium,  
the message gets uploaded.
