Logos Electromechanical LLC builds electronic modules focused around the Arduino platform. Our flagship product is the Zigduino, an Arduino variant with an integrated 802.15.4 radio. We also have two exciting new products.rn
Thanks to the rise of Making as both a cultural and economic force, entirely new categories and market dynamics are rising in Consumer Electronics, Fashion, and other industries with historically high barriers to entry. Simultaneously, digital fabrication tools have become smaller, better, and cheaper. The democratization of manufacturing is driven by and for Makers, and not only will the factories of tomorrow look and operate more like the cloud services of today, but large investments in tools will no longer required. One day in the not-to-distant future, factories will fit in a garage or small office.
Inspired by the Transformer Soundwave, we used the Raspberry Pi to build an interactive costume--it transforms into a video game machine you can play. See the many ways to incorporate electronics in your costuming!
This is a glove that controls your android with an Arduino. All the data is shown on the VR glasses. By using your thumb, index, or middle finger you can draw out menus and etc.
Benjamin James will demonstrate various aspects of Total Control Lighting, a line of individually addressable LEDs. Attendees will learn about RGB LED serial protocol lighting technology, how to use our open-source libraries and free software to program patterns and capture live video input, and how to use Arduino shields to make their projects interactive.
Ever wanted to make your own solar panels? How about your own solar cell phone charger? Now you can, and for around $15 in materials. The materials and plans are online and open-source. Drop by to learn how!
Intel's Futurist Brian David Johnson will release the "21st Century Robot" book (published by Make) and introduce a 21st Century Robot kit that is easy to build, completely open source and filled with humanity. The idea is to enable as many people as possible to design, print and program robots.
Nerds For Nature brings technologists, environmental specialists, students, and citizen scientists together to build awesome tools that help us understand and revive the natural world. See how you can help!nn
