Being disruptive (of conventional wisdom) and respectful of kids' intelligence and creativity was the fuel behind the building of Nickelodeon. The mission was "to connect with kids and connect kids with each other through entertainment." We're taking a look at what that means in 2014, how partnering with kids and being disruptive could really take this mission farther.
castAR is the premier projected augmented reality system. With the look and feel of sunglasses, castAR lets multiple users see and manipulate holographic-like images, all while still being visually grounded in the real world.
The Raspberry Pi loves Wifi. Using it to scan wifi traffic is fun and educational. With a few off the shelf components the possibilities, and projects, are endless
This presentation will cover mobile and in-home projects including:nn* Record and analyze wifi trafficn* Identify nearby access points and clientsn* Listen for rogue access points and scannersn* Use a spectrum analyzer to watch wifi signalsn
The Computer Clubhouse Start Making! Program introduces youth to the basics of circuitry, coding, crafting, & engineering through progressive introductory activities, leading to individual & small group "open make" pursuits.
What if you could teach a robot to perform a task, a sort of on-the-job training? Brain Corporations team of neuroscientists have been developing an adaptive intelligence platform that will allow anyone to teach a robot a particular task, without the need for programming or knowledge of complex algorithms. In partnership with Qualcomm, we have implemented our artificial brain on a low-power, high-performance Snapdragon processor that allows the robot to see and act in its environment. Entirely 3D printed, the robot body is a mobile inverted pendulum that was developed with the UC San Diego Coordinated Robotics lab.
iNet2DVR is a cost effective and easy to use device that enables home automation using any standard security Digital Video Recording unit. Z-wave & X10 home automation modules are use to control lights, locks and thermostats.
This is a glove that controls your android with an Arduino. All the data is shown on the VR glasses. By using your thumb, index, or middle finger you can draw out menus and etc.
It's easy to add Bluetooth to your Arduino project enabling wireless communication with a phone or computer. Learn about the difference between Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy. I'll demonstrate iPhone and Android applications communicating with Arduino based projects.n
Learn how Near Field Communication (NFC) can be added to your Arduino project using the Adafruit or Seeed Studio NFC Shields. I'll demonstrate reading and writing NFC tags with Arduino. I'll also show to send data between Arduino and your NFC enabled
Join us at Gibberish to make silly putty and explore the chemistry of polymers and sublimation! We will be making personalized phone covers (while you wait) and you can shop for handmade science jewelry and clothing gifts.
Novena is a quad-core ARM-based open source mobile computing platform that runs Linux. We designed and built every component in the system, from the motherboard to the case. We'll share our experiences making Novena, and demo the platform
We'll also talk about some of the more esoteric features, such as the integrated FPGA, expansion boards, and other high hack-value design highlights.
What's in store in the world of microcontrollers? Join Massimo Banzi (Arduino), Dale Dougherty (MAKE), Jason Kridner (Beaglebone) and MAKE editors Matt Richardson and Alasdair Allan for some good conversation and debate about what these inexpensive and powerful boards can do today, but mostly what the next generations of microcontroller boards could bring.
