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.
Chris is a DIY enthusiast focused on simple, inexpensive, wireless sensor networks and home automation. He'll show us how sensors can track temperature, light, and gas presence in your home. He'll cover the basics of how to build your own inexpensive wireless sensor network using Raspberry Pi, XBee, and Python to track sensor data and store it on the web.
Hosted by MAKE's Matt Richardson.
Do you have the Right Stuff to be a citizen scientist or citizen astronaut? Citizens in Space has acquired 10 flights on the XCOR Lynx spacecraft. This is your chance to fly.
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.
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.
Crowdsource the Final Frontier! Meet the people who raised funds for building satellites, rockets and more! They will tell their success stories, and give advice to future space project Makers.
World's first 3D printed, Lasercut, Open Source Arduino compatible Xbox Laptop that you can buy fully assembled or in DIY kit form.
The Data Sensing Lab (http://datasensinglab.com) gave attendees of Google I/O a taste of the world of the future — where we move in a sea of data, our environments monitored, measured, and weighed. Learn about the sensor hardware and the production process that built it. Five hundred mesh networked sensor motes, producing over four thousand individual sensor readings about the environment, distributed all through Moscone West at one of the biggest conferences of the year. Come behind the scenes with Kipp Bradford and Alasdair Allan, and see how the Data Sensing Lab team managed to pull off this massive installation on a ridiculously short time scale.
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.
Display of MyDIYCNC CNC machines performing tasks such as PCB track isolation milling, parts fabrication and lithopane milling. Launch of my new intelligent USB CNC interface for PC, Mac and Linux platforms. Display CNC kits.
Make your own hybrid RC car using a low cost DIY kit - can be used in the RC mode or in the "self driving" mode using ultrasonic sensors a micro-controller such as an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi.
