How to Transform a Container into a Makerspace

Presenter

We invited makers from all around the world and fellows from Afrimakers to spend one month in Berlin, attend the first MakerCamp in Europe and build the first makerspace in a shipping container in Germany. The makers used the space they built for prototyping meaningful maker projects and for organizing many workshops and events for the local community. The container, the furniture and space were documented in 3d and all our projects were documented and shared here: >a href="https://github.com/hackidemia/makercamphttps://github.com/hackidemia/makercamp>/a>. We had more than 15 learning modules in our MakerCamp and 5 project were created and demo-ed at the end of the camp (makercamp.co/blog)

Building Better Robots

Presenter

A hands on introduction to the OpenCM9.04 micro-controller and the OpenCM IDE. The OpenCM9.04 brings the power of an ARM microprocessor to the Arduino world. In addition to providing access to the large pool of Arduino libraries, it allows the use of high power TTL servos specifically designed for robotics applications. With the addition of a daughter board, industrial RS485 servos can be used to build real automation equipment leveraging what the user already knows about the Arduino world. The workshop will demonstrate how to get started with the OpenCM9.04 and and show a variety of applications including a humanoid robot dance team.





Linino

Exhibit

dog hunter, a company with headquarters in the USA (Boston), in Switzerland (Zug) and in Taiwan, designs, develops and produces WiFi modules supported by the Linino distribution of Linux and aimed at the educational, hobby and industrial sectors. Through its controlled company DH Labs in Italy it designs and develops solutions for sensors' management and control for the industrial sector. Arduino Yun, Linino ONE, Linino Yun Shield, Freedog, OpenSDA, Lucky Shield for Linino ONE are the most known modules by worldwide Makers and you'll find them at dog hunter's booth, together with newly developed prototypes. A team of Linino engineers and staff will be at the booth, ready to give you demonstrations, all of the information you need and to show some of the potentialities of the WiFi modules. Some sample projects will be on show, too...come and visit the booth to be astonished by the many uses of the company's products!


littleBits

Exhibit

littleBits is the New York-u00adbased startup that is making hardware limitless. The company makes a library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets to let anyone build, invent, and prototype with electronics u00adu00adu2013 no soldering, wiring, or programming required. littleBits breaks down powerful technology u2013 from music with the littleBits Synth Kit, to space exploration with the littleBits Space Kit, to the Internet of Things with the cloudBit u2013 and makes them accessible and easy to understand. The littleBits library includes more than five kits and nearly 60 interoperable modules with products sold in 70 countries around the world. The company was founded in 2011 by MIT graduate, TED Senior Fellow and Open Hardware Summit cofounder Ayah Bdeir, and has grown to be a global leader in hardware. littleBits has one mission: To put the power of electronics into everyone's hands.


Micro Center

Exhibit

Micro Center is introducing our new $999.99 PowerSpec 3D Pro 3D Printer at World Maker Faire New York. To celebrate, we will be giving away one of these new 3D printers per hour during World Maker Faire New York. Attendees can register in our booth for a chance to win one of the 17 new PowerSpec 3D Pro 3D Printers we will be giving away. Those who visit our booth will also receive free filaments.



MathWorks

Exhibit

MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on its products to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development. Demonstrations of MATLAB and Simulink integrated with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Lego Mindstorms.



Metasphere

Exhibit

Metasphere is a platform that connects hardware and software interfaces for developers of any skill level, from beginner to enterprise. Metasphere addresses the lack of flexible communication between hardware and software with instant plug and go connections in few lines of ready-made code. Metasphere brings higher level programming languages and powerful features to low level hardware, shortening the length of time and effort required to engineer new ideas from prototyping to product. We will be demonstrating the metasphere platform with one of our projects, a motorcycle remote started using an Arduino and a smart phone. The project includes a riding jacket with wearable LED's that sync with the motorcycle's turn signals and break lights. The project will highlight metasphere's realtime data capture taking statistics from the motorcycle including geospatial data, gauge outputs, and more.
