ROBOTIC FASHION and INTIMATE INTERFACES

Presenter

Dutch based designer Anouk Wipprecht works in the emerging field of "Fashionable Technology"; a rare combination of sartorial knowhow combined with engineering smarts and style, she has in a very short period created an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way. She creates technological couture; with background in fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction design, she creates systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.




BlueQuad

Exhibit

A self designed and built quadrotor, with built-in motion-stabilized camera gimbal. All major parts for the quad were built using a CNC machine that I also built.

Sentry Gun Robot

Exhibit

The Sentry Gun Robot is an Arduino controlled robot that carries a sentry gun. We aim and fire the gun from a computer, and the robot uses infrared LEDS and sensors to randomly navigate through obstacles and rooms.







How to Build a Portal Turret (Without Expensive Equipment)

Presenter

I am building a fully-functional turret from the video game ''Portal 2'' and plan to complete it by April 1st. In my presentation, I will demonstrate the turret's capabilities, including motion detection and tracking, shooting Nerf darts, and retractable side panels. I will also talk about the building process and show photos and video. I will show that anyone can make things, even without a ''real'' workshop. I use commonly available tools like a screwdriver and drill, and a soldering iron to assemble the electronics, which are programmed with the free Arduino compiler.


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!



Rover – A LEGO self-driving car

Presenter

Rover is an autonomous mobile robot platform, consisting of a LEGO base, a depth sensor, and a laptop on top of the base for image processing, path planning and human robot interaction. This robot won an Intel perceptual computing award and was presented with Intel at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. It is going to be demonstrated next at CeBIT in Hannover - Europe's most important computer faire.
