Technology related art in San Francisco

I'm going to San Francisco for a week: 2/7-2/13. The theme for my activities will be "ingenuity." First, I'm looking for technology related art but I'm open anything that's cool and techy or even anything that makes you think, "Wow! ingenious!"

So, I'm starting a blog. It's tied to an arts festival (not in SF) with a technology theme. Yes, I will post the blog to Metafilter Projects when I have a little more meat on it. Hopefully shortly after I get back from SF.
Art about technology? Art that uses technology? Machines, crafts (iron, glass), computers, information visualization, computer generated, net-art... I'm far from expert on art so I don't want to limit your suggestions but those are some of the things that I could think of.
Tours of cool factories or public works?
heirloom technology?.... Don't feel restricted by anything that I've mentioned. What's the most ingenius thing in San Francisco?
There've obviously been a lot of SF AskMe posts. The closest one was about geeky consumer products. Consumer electronics could be cool but I'm looking for a deeper experience than shopping.
There are a couple obvious things. I keep hearing about some sort of bridge? That's great but I need something to differentiate my pictures from everyone else's tourist pictures. I went to the Exploratorium web site and couldn't really tell if it's worth checking out. I'm sure it's an amazing museum but are there specific exhibits that address my theme?
