Networked mobile robots with Python or JavaScript on BeagleBone

Presenter

Building mobile robots keeps getting easier and easier, but we are also expecting them to do more and more. Start with high-level languages like Python and JavaScript to help make integration with everything else on the Internet easier
This presentation is a rapid-fire tour of how people are building robots today using BeagleBone Black. It covers controlling your bot from a web page including a game controller and streaming video and audio from your bot, range finding and collision sensing, determining motion and orientation, determining amount of wheel rotation, network connectivity, web API integration and vision processing.





The Last Gun

Exhibit

A robotic flute that combines open-source electronics, music & weaponry. Created from instruments of both destruction and harmony, The Last Gun is a commentary on the excesses of the technological age and the exploits of war.









The Board Room Hour

Presenter

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.


Getting Started with Raspberry Pi

Presenter

Go from 0 to Raspberry Pi in 15 minutes with one of the co-authors of Getting Started with Raspberry Pi and MAKE Contributing Editor, Matt Richardson. Learn what Raspberry Pi is, what you'll need to use it, and how makers have been integrating this $35 mini computer in their projects.

Beta LAYOUT Ltd

Exhibit

Scared of Surface Mount Components? At Maker Faire, Beta LAYOUT will be taking the fear out of SMD assembly for hobbyists and small batch electronics. At our workshop, you will assemble and reflow a PCB to make a flashing badge. Our workstation is easy, safe and can make your workbench into a professional assembly line.

Beta LAYOUT has been servicing hobbyists, designers and students for over 20 years with PCBs and other components for electronic designers. By combining our many orders we have cut costs, eliminated tooling and shared the savings with designers globally. Prototypes made easy, as our 30,000 customers might say.
