The International Space Station passes overhead most of the populated areas of the world every day. If only you knew it was there. ISS-Above lights up when the ISS is nearby, sends a TWEET to the ISS and has a web server to g
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.
In this talk I will demonstrate how to connect sensors of various types to the Raspberry Pi. Since the Raspberry Pi has no analog inputs, this involves the use of some smart tricks to use resistive sensors.
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.
Sensors can track temperature, light, gases, presence in your home. You can build a wireless sensor network using Raspberry Pi/Beaglebone Black, xBee, Linux, and Python. Come see our DIY thermostat project.
Learningtech.org offers Science/Tech/Eng/Math [STEM] camps. Our HANDS-ON booth highlights work by K12 students. WE MAKE MAKERS who learn to tech and tech to learn! Examples include PyBot: Lego Robots w Python and Raspberry Pi
Tips and lessons learned from running two hardware based Kickstarter projects with a full time day job and family. A must see for anyone aspiring to launch a hardware based crowd funding project.
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.
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.
Makeblock is an open source robot construction platform, most of parts included are made of strong aluminum extrusions, customers can use it to build many kinds of really cool robots, such as wheeled or tracked vechiles, robot arms,camera sliders, music robot, XY ploter even a 3D printer.
Makeblock controller in based on Arduino, and it's compatiable with many kinds industry standard parts, also compatiable with Lego bricks.

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.
