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.



Ford

Exhibit

Transit Connect Pinewood Race. Ford designed this space to speak to the ingenuity of the thinkers, tinkers, hobbyists and tech enthusiasts who use "remaking" to fulfill an individual vision. Stop by to create and race your own mini Pinewood Transit Connect Vehicle. And share your experience via our Instagram hashtag printer. Check out the winning Transit Connect designs from the Makers Design Challenge—a partnership with DIY blogs, Boing Boing and Make. The challenge encouraged Makers to put their creative vision on display by transforming the Transit Connect into their very own mobile lab.












Spread Code the Brooklyn Way

Presenter

Momo Akade, a Brooklyn-native, former teacher and lifelong maker, is the founder of Gigabryte, a platform that introduces kids to programming through wearable electronics. She created GigaBryte to help close the racial and ethnic divide in the field of computing. Momo was lucky enough to grow up in Brooklyn in the 80s and 90s, when Hip Hop music and fashion exploded on the scene. In this presentation, she'll pay homage to the MCs, DJs, graffiti artists, and break dancers who shaped her early identity as a maker, as well as to the sneakerhead kids she taught who inspired her to develop new pathways into STEAM.
