Super Blocks is meant to reinforce math skills in children. In the game the player is presented with math problems of varying difficulties. Points can be spent to provide visual upgrades to the game experience.
How did you get online before the Internet and smartphones? Explore our exhibit and use a teletype, green-screen terminal, or (gasp!) a dial-up modem to connect to vintage computers of the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
Graphing calculators are ubiquitous, surprisingly powerful pocket computers. They're a great way to learn programming or to get started with controlling DIY hardware. Come see projects and learn how you can get started.
Spark + Pebble = hacking the internet of things at Maker Faire Bay Area Pebble was born from hacking. Back in 2008, Eric plugged a Nokia phone display and Bluetooth radio into an Arduino board and our first prototype came to life. Hacking is part of Pebble’s DNA, and is reflected today in the awesome apps made by Pebble developers using our SDK -- from flying an AR Drone to controlling a Tesla. That’s why you’ll find Pebble at Maker Faire Bay Area on May 17 and 18 at the San Mateo Event Center. But we’re not doing it alone. We’re sharing a booth with the wonderful folks at Spark, makers of the Spark Core -- a tiny, Arduino-compatible WiFi development board. The Spark team created an easy-to-use product that allows anyone to connect everyday electronics to the internet over WiFi. We have a lot in common, from our Kickstarter beginnings and passion for hacking to our open platforms and strong developer communities. Spark and Pebble are joining forces at Maker Faire to enable makers and developers to explore new and exciting ideas that connect our two platforms. We believe that, just like the web, the internet of things will only thrive when people collaborate. Join us next weekend in San Mateo for two fun-filled days of hacking on Pebble and Spark Core.
Nuts & Volts is the leading magazine for those seriously interested in electronics. There now remain only a few magazines written for the electronics community with Nuts & Volts being the highest readership, longest running electronics publication left in the US today. We also have readers and advertisers that have been with us since the early 80s. Nuts & Volts is written for the hands-on hobbyist, design engineer, technician, and experimenter. The diversity of subjects appeals to all levels of experience and spans such topics as Arduino projects, Raspberry Pi projects, amateur robotics, circuit design, lasers, computer control, home automation, microcontrollers, data acquisition, new technology, DIY projects, electronic theory, and more, not to mention the popular BASIC Stamp. We're looking forward to meeting you so stop by booth 307 and say hello!

Linino modules are now available: ONE, Freedog, Chiwawa with Collar and Arduino Yun. These boards are based on OpenWRT distribution. Linino provides a fully writable filesystem with package management with GPG signature. dog hunter produces A MIPS GNU/Linux box for Arduino™ and Internet of Everything. Combining the Linux OS with IoE HW + certified WiFi 802.11n connectivity and use OpenWRT and Peer-to-Peer (AllJoyn software framework) to customize your own project. The product hopes to make an open source WiFi home automation seamless and easy to understand for all levels of technology users. The Linino ™ ONE is a MIPS board based on the Atheros AR9331 and the ATmega32u4 (datasheet). The Atheros processor supports Linino, a Linux distribution based on OpenWRT. The board has built-in WiFi support, 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, an ICSP header, 2 reset buttons and 1 user button. The Freedog is a MIPS board based on the Atheros AR9331 and the Kinetis L Series KL25Z MCUs built on ARM® Cortex™-M0+ processor. The Atheros processor supports Linino, a Linux distribution based on OpenWRT. The board has built-in Ethernet and WiFi support, a USB-A port, micro-SD card slot, 20 digital input/output pins (of which 7 can be used as PWM outputs and 12 as analog inputs), a 8 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, an SWD header, and 3 reset buttons. The external row of the pin-header is Arduino compatible. The Linino Chiwawa is an LGA module based on the a Atheros MIPS AR9331. The Atheros processor supports Linino, a Linux distribution based on OpenWRT. The module is provided with a daughter board where all the signals coming form the module are exported. The board has built-in Ethernet and WiFi support, a USB-A port, micro-SD card slot, a 16 MHz crystal oscillator, a micro USB connection, PoE module connection, and reset button. Follow us @LininoWo
