Back to Meet the Makers

“Gertie” the robot

Exhibit

Gertie is a jumping robot that uses a mechanism called "Delta robot" to displace it's center of gravity which allows it to tilt side to side and even jump!


3D Scanning

Presenter

3D printing has been around since the 1970's, but it's changed a lot recently. Printers are cheaper, easier to use, and more accurate than ever. 3D imaging is next and is about to make a big splash for makers and others.


A Different Game

Exhibit

This project is comparing different kinds of grasses to find which would be the most efficient and cost effective for use on football fields


A Mini Forklift to Haul Klein Bottles

Presenter

Build a do it yourself mini-forklift robot to get boxes out from under your house. Along the way, explore Mobius Loops, Klein Bottles, and other mathematical curiosities!


A New Way to Make Music with Natural 3D Motion

Presenter

Making new instruments has always been part of music's progress through society, and technology has afforded tremendous innovation. Adam Somers has taken a leap into the future of music by creating powerful new instruments for the Leap Motion Controller, a 3-D motion control device that senses both hands and all fingers at up to 1/100th millimeter. In this hands-off live demo, Adam will discuss the making of Air Harp and Air Beats, and how his Leap Motion instruments can open new possibilities for musicians and makers of all levels.


A Structured Approach to Charlieplexing

Presenter

Charlieplexing is a good way to control many LEDs. For small arrays the wiring is simple. Building anything else can get complicated. Splitting an array into a series of smaller ones makes building and programming much easier


A World of Virtual Maker Culture

Presenter

ROBLOX is a hub for virtual Makers -- Every month on ROBLOX, millions of Builders create models, places, even whole worlds that they share with others. See what they've made! What will you build?


Ace

Exhibit

My project is a radio controlled airplane that has a structure made out of foam board, and includes multiple servos and an electric motor controlling the propeller.


ACE-Bot

Exhibit

The Ace-Bot is a robot like a hexapod, except obtaining a total of 8 legs. It will be a radio controlled robot and can also turn into a boat. This robot is controlled by an arduino, which is operating several servos, motors,


ADORI

Exhibit

ADORI is the DVR for Car Radio. It transforms the car radio listening experience by providing Play, Pause, Rewind features to the existing audio system in your car.


AeroQuad – The open source multicopter project!

Exhibit

The AeroQuad is an open source quadcopter/multicopter project which provides freely available software and hardware designs, with a friendly and helpful online community since 2009. Turn your Arduino into a flying quacopter!


Alcyone: A Raspberry Pi Path to Music

Exhibit

The Raspberry Pi makes for an ideal platform for designing yournown musical instruments and controllers. See what we've done and get some ideas for your own creation.


Alex Hornstein and Shawn Frayne: Solar Revolutionaries

Presenter

Meet Alex Hornstein and Shawn Frayne, whose Kickstarter project the Solar Pocket Factory manufactures solar panels on your desktop; and Jerrold Karmin, who builds portable solar power plants, light towers, and
fantastic solar vehicles for Burning Man.


Alice Taylor: Toys from the Future

Presenter

Alice Taylor will talk about the challenges and opportunities of using 3D printing and other nu-manufacturing techniques to produce consumer-facing retail products, using Makies(R) as a live example.


ALL Power Labs

Exhibit

ALL Power Labs focuses on small-scale gasification. We make biomass gasifiers that are ready for everyday use, to serve real world distributed energy needs.


Anacleto, T-REX Dinosaur puppet

Exhibit

I'm Gabriel, I have 15 years old and I built Anacleto. A Giant T-Rex puppet that I control inside.


Analog computers!

Exhibit

Play with analog computers, experiment with chaos, and fly an analog lunar lander simulation.
Before digital computers, analog computers were the standard way to solve solve equations and perform simulations.


Analog Sensory Cane

Exhibit

A normal white cane is modified using Ping))) sensor technology and Arduino.


Android and PC Apps using IOIO

Exhibit

Interactive Android and PC projects using the open source IOIO Board


Android Make Project

Exhibit

We are Makers who loves Android and we are regular attendee of Maker Faire in Japan.
