Want to tinker with locks and tools, the likes of which you've only seen in movies featuring cat burglars or secret agents? Then come to TOOOL's Lockpick Village, where you will learn hands-on how physical security operates.
This presentation will outline how to create robots with a purpose for less then you'd ever imagine. Cost cutting strategies such as repurposing common materials, using parts from old, broken or discarded appliances, and online bargain resources will be discussed. Examples of actual, functional ''budget'' parts, such as linear slides, will be revealed. Presentation by Ben Hylak (White House Science Fair 2012, invited by both Make and Broadcom, Disney Peer Mentor 2014, and 5-time blue ribbon winner at NYC Maker Fair 2011).
I am exploring how toys and peripherals can become super fatter, interactive intimate clients. I will be exhibiting a hacked Furby which connect to a Meteor.js chat app over the internet and make the Furby ''possessible.''
It is a trend that the web client is becoming fatter, with more computing and data storage leveraged to front end. The concept of a thin client is becoming more and more obsolete as more interaction, timeliness and personification are required from the user facing the client.nI am exploring how toys can become super fat, interactive web clients. I will be presenting what I have discovered along the way as I hack a Furby, connect it to a Meteor chat app and make the toy literally ''possessed'' by other users. Warning: It can be scary!n

Sony unveils the prototype of MESH at Maker Faire Bay Area for the first time. MESH is a concept of open platform that helps you invent. You can connect various functional blocks, such as buttons, LEDs, acceleration sensors, and speakers, all wirelessly. Anyone can use the fun and simple visual UI of MESH to create anything and then share their invention with users all over the world! At the Sony booth, come and play with prototypes or attend a mini-workshop to see how easy and fun MESH is to use. Watch our demo movie to learn more about “What is MESH?” and “How To Use MESH”.

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.
