Sphero

Exhibit

As the industry leader in Connected Play, we are defining the future of fun. Founded by Ian Bernstein and Adam Wilson, passionate robotics and software engineers, we create connected toys, fusing emerging technology with the latest innovations in robotics. Unlike traditional toys, our robots and software allow us to create ever-evolving experiences u2013 changing the way people play, learn and explore. Based in Boulder, Colorado, the Sphero team takes fun very seriously. We have found that people learn about Sphero best when they get to play with it. So we have developed an event track (can vary in size but is optimal at 6' x 18') that allows for up to 6 different people to drive and play with Sphero at the same time. In the track are certain obstacles and jumps that add to the challenge. We bring with us a branded backdrop that is 8' x 20' to fit behind the track, and a TV monitor with video of Sphero and Ollie in action. In addition to the driving experience, we sometimes do on-site giveaways and live demonstrations.

In our stand you will find all our products developed since 2007, including XBee, GPRS, 3G, Radiation Sensor board, e-Health and HVAC IR Remote for Arduino and Raspberry Pi as well as Waspmote, our Open Source Sensor Platform for the Community. Visit us to meet special and funny demos based in Arduino and don't forget to attend the speech given by Mike Script, from GuardIt, about INSPIRE: the smart device which detects pneumonia in babies.


Learn to Prototype Projects and Applications with the LaunchPad Ecosystem

Presenter

The LaunchPad Ecosystem from Texas Instruments allows makers to rapidly prototype projects and applications using affordable modular hardware powered by TI technology. TI has one of the largest portfolios of embedded processing, analog, and wireless integrated circuits and you can use LaunchPad to start evaluating these parts for your next project. The Energia IDE allows makers to quickly create code to run on the LaunchPads and drive BoosterPack plug-in modules. Quickly add WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, sensors, displays, LEDs, and more to your LaunchPad project to create demonstrations of home automation, motor control, and dynamic lighting.



SciPlay

Exhibit

The Picture Dots app invites young children to take pictures and label them with interactive dots that add color, text, music and sound. GeniGames is a computer based game that teaches kids about genetics by breeding dragons.



Arduino NFC

Presenter

Learn how Near Field Communication (NFC) can be added to your Arduino project using the Adafruit or Seeed Studio NFC Shield. I'll demonstrate reading and writing NFC tags with Arduino. I'll also show to send data between Arduino and your NFC phone.
