SparkIO & Pebble

Exhibit

Spark + Pebble = hacking the internet of things at Maker Faire Bay Area Pebble was born from hacking. Back in 2008, Eric plugged a Nokia phone display and Bluetooth radio into an Arduino board and our first prototype came to life. Hacking is part of Pebble’s DNA, and is reflected today in the awesome apps made by Pebble developers using our SDK -- from flying an AR Drone to controlling a Tesla. That’s why you’ll find Pebble at Maker Faire Bay Area on May 17 and 18 at the San Mateo Event Center. But we’re not doing it alone. We’re sharing a booth with the wonderful folks at Spark, makers of the Spark Core -- a tiny, Arduino-compatible WiFi development board. The Spark team created an easy-to-use product that allows anyone to connect everyday electronics to the internet over WiFi. We have a lot in common, from our Kickstarter beginnings and passion for hacking to our open platforms and strong developer communities. Spark and Pebble are joining forces at Maker Faire to enable makers and developers to explore new and exciting ideas that connect our two platforms. We believe that, just like the web, the internet of things will only thrive when people collaborate. Join us next weekend in San Mateo for two fun-filled days of hacking on Pebble and Spark Core.

Taktia

Exhibit

Taktia will be demonstrating our first-of-its-kind handheld CNC machine. Attendees will be able to try out our working prototype, which is the size of a handheld router and can be used to precisely cut shapes of any size out of wood, plastic, or sheet metal, directly from a digital design. How does it work? The user loads a 2D shape that they want to cut, and then positions the tool manually in the approximate area of the tool path. The tool then uses a camera to track where it is, and can adjust its own position to move the cutting device to be exactly on the plan. To cut a shape, the user just approximately follows the desired path by following graphics on an onboard screen, and the tool constantly self-adjusts to follow the plan perfectly. You can see a YouTube video of the tool here: http://youtu.be/-UmL7xZZSUk
