EyeCheck

Presenter

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.

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


Cylon.js: The JavaScript Evolution Of Open Source Robotics

Presenter

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.
That is why we created Cylon.js, a JavaScript framework for open source robotics & the Internet of Things. Cylon.js makes it easy to write apps that communicate with many different kinds of hardware devices all at the same time. The time has come for the next generation of open source robotics, and Cylon.js can help lead the way!













Teach Kids To Code: one girl’s journey with Raspberry Pi

Presenter

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.
