World Health Organization estimates that 158 million people around the world need prescription to prevent low vision or near blindness. EyeCheck is a low-cost alternative for performing eye exams in areas currently underserved by vision services. The solution uses eccentric photorefraction, employing an image capture device with infrared illumination to capture the light reflected from a patient's eyes. Captured images are processed via custom built software, which provides the type of refractive error and its severity. Currently, the team's software is able to detect refractive error with over ninety percent accuracy.
RainCloud is designed to replace garden hose timers with an IoT product to manage growing crops. Combining sensors, actuators and web-apps creates a user friendly, smart irrigation and crop management platform.
An open-source web-based sprinkler timer for lawn watering, farm irrigation etc. Set programs and check sprinkler status via web browser or our mobile app, at home or remotely. Automatic adjustment based on weather condition.
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 robotics revolution has already begun. You can even buy drones and robotic devices at local retail stores. Unfortunately, it has been too hard to develop code for robots, and nearly impossible to create solutions that integrate multiple different kind of devices.
The BootstrapSolar Chi-qoo is an Open Source KickStarter-funded DIY hackcable solar power pack kit, originally designed for charing small devices like smartphones, but can also be used to build solar-powered robots!
Lil DJ is an interactive toy that puts kids in the DJ booth where they can create their own music by layering beats and loops. Lil DJ is designed to enable kids to make music that is pleasing to them and their parents.
An out-of-the-box RGB Lighting Kit featuring an easy-to-use Bluetooth controller and Smart App to quickly generate light painting animations, mood lighting modes, and fashionable patterns for wearable electronics!
Gertie is an egg-like robot that moves around by jumping! His outside is make out of silicone so that it squashes and stretches as it moves around. Swing by and button mash the hacked wireless buttons and watch them jump!
The solrmatic takes the guesswork out of solar cooking. Put your own solar cooker on the rotator, put the temperature probes in the oven and food, select your presets and let the solrmatic do the rest. Enjoy perfect food!
Inspired by the Transformer Soundwave, we used the Raspberry Pi to build an interactive costume--it transforms into a video game machine you can play. See the many ways to incorporate electronics in your costuming!
Alexandra Jordan (9 years old) and her dad Richard Jordan will talk through the inexpensive setup for teaching kids to code:
Raspberry Pin- Software tools (including vim, ruby)n- $10 keyboard and mousen- household TV / old monitornnA few rigs like this and you can make a difference in your local community. Take home our lesson plan:
how computers workn- basic unix commandsn- simple text editorn- scripting in rubyn- testing coden- programming for the webnn...all while learning good habits of Pair Programming & Test Driven Development. We will set up a website for Maker Faire with lesson plan & code samples for download.
