Walk through how to assemble an example surface mount circuit board with Tempo Automation's Electronics Factory, a desktop pick and place robot.
We are a digital fabrication studio at an independent all-girls school for grades 6-12 located in Palo Alto, California. Girls (and teachers!) come to the lab to tinker, build, and prototype.
Bioprinting is printing with biological materials - 3D printing with squishier ingredients! In a BioCurious community project, we're building our own bioprinter from scavenged CD drives, an inkjet cartridge, and an Arduino.
Chimera Art Space is the first community arts and maker space in Sonoma County, California. We're a diverse community of artists, makers, hackers, inventors, and mad scientists looking to learn, share and grow.
Taos, New Mexico-based artist and roboticist Christian Ristow has been dropping jaws with his large-scale installations at Maker Faire Bay Area since 2008 and has been a maker all his life. He has also done animatronics and special effects for a number of Hollywood movies and founded robotic performance art troupe Robochrist Industries. His interactive sculpture, Hand of Man, a 26-foot-long hydraulically actuated human hand and forearm capable of picking up and crushing cars, is on display at this year's Faire. Hosted by MAKE's Goli Mohammadi.
We are a collection of hackers, programmers, builders, makers, artists and people who generally like to break things and see what new things we can build with the pieces.
An innovative DIY project that combines the application of electrical sensors and a new type of 3D art design together for fast prototyping is presented.
Creepy Crawlies is a collection of robots each exploring a different mode of locomotion. Visitors can try out steering slithering snakes and creepy insects around the exhibit.
Dave Shinsel is a Software Engineer that has been building robots for over 10 years. He has been featured in Popular Mechanics Magazine, and is the most recent victor of the SyFy's Robot Combat League.
Ever wanted to build your own "professional" printed circuit boards? We will bootstrap you with the Open Source program "Kicad" and walk through the steps understand the software and have your boards manufactured.
