Young women frequently avoid electronics and programming because of its cultural stigmas and apparent lack of creativity. How do we expand computer science culture to be more inclusive to women? Here, we introduce Sew Electric -- a book that engages young people (and adults!) who don't consider themselves techies in creating technology -- by teaching electronics and programming through a series of sewable electronics projects, from building a singing plush monster to crafting a touch-sensitive fabric piano.

In November 2013, we at Integreight launched a 30-days crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, to raise $10,000 for our product 1Sheeld, a new Arduino shield that allows you to use your smartphone as a re-configurable shield, we ended up getting $85,000
There a lot of homework before the campaign, a lot of do's and don'ts while executing your campaign, and a lot to follow up on after the campaign
When crowd-funding a maker's product there are a lot of things to take in consideration, how to present your idea, how to shoot a video, design your rewards level, design your campaign page and gain the backers' trust.

The BioMONSTAAR bioreactor is an open source, arduino controlled, automated photobioreactor (PBR) array with potential future applications in aquaculture, genetic engineering, bioremediation, and space research.
I am building a fully-functional turret from the video game ''Portal 2'' and plan to complete it by April 1st. In my presentation, I will demonstrate the turret's capabilities, including motion detection and tracking, shooting Nerf darts, and retractable side panels. I will also talk about the building process and show photos and video. I will show that anyone can make things, even without a ''real'' workshop. I use commonly available tools like a screwdriver and drill, and a soldering iron to assemble the electronics, which are programmed with the free Arduino compiler.
The robotics revolution has already begun. You can even buy drones and robotic devices at local retail stores. Unfortunately, it has been too hard to develop code for robots, and nearly impossible to create solutions that integrate multiple different kind of devices.
iQuad is a quadcopter with wings that can transition from a hovering mode to an efficient airplane-like forward flight mode. It is controlled using Arducopter, and has a carbon fiber body with 3D-printed wings.
