We often think that making is a means to an end, a way to produce an artifact. But the attitude and the process that drives the making is just as important as the product. This is especially so once you realize that the attitude and process that facilitates a smooth making process parallels that which empowers us to realize our empathy in relation to other people.
MakerSwarm is an authoring tool for the Internet of Everything.
It's about building apps across atoms and bits that flow liquidly across the social life of products, environments, and people. MakerSwarm unlocks the power of a trillion-node world so that everyday people; kids, moms, dads, weekend tinkerers, and burgeoning entrepreneurs can build powerful and fun new products and experiences in minutes instead of weeks or months.
MakerSwarm gives the power of X-ray vision to makers, so that they can ""see"" into any of the smart devices around them, from cell phones to TV sets, from connected thermostats to wearable sensors. It's about giving them visual tools so that they can grab ahold of any capability within a device and drag and drop it into a new app that spans across a swarm of your friend's devices in a massively peer-to-peer community.
MakerSwarm lowers the bar for building never-before-seen Internet of Everything experiences and unlocks the power of Trillions so that the best makers can earn rewards in the market of ideas.

One year in the making. Six countries. 50 scientists. "Making Stuff 2," David Pogue's new NOVA series, debuts on Oct 15 with four episodes: "Colder," "Faster," "Safer," and "Wilder"--but you don't have to wait for the good stuff. NY Times columnist/NOVA host David Pogue is back with a sneak preview--and some hilarious anecdotes, bloopers, and unreleased clips.
SketchUp is the easiest way to draw in 3D.
At World Maker Faire, we've collaborated with WikiHouse and ShopBot to build a single story house out of open-sourced designs developed in SketchUp. Swing by our exhibit to learn about the basics of 3D modeling and how to create 3D designs that can be developed into CNC projects!
We support ingenuity and the thinkers who use "remaking" to fulfill an individual vision, not only with the Ford Connect, but with anything that can be transformed to support a personal lifestyle, hobby or home business. Visit us at moversandmakers.tumblr.com.
Visitors to the Purina ONE booth at Maker Faire will have the opportunity to create and invent their own do-it-yourself (DIY) puzzle feeder projects to help enrich the feeding experiences of their cats; gather inspiration from the DIY wall u2013 a gallery of projects created from Purina ONE's cat community; and interact with a fun and shareable area at the booth. What you feed your cat is just as important as HOW you feed your cat. Cats are designed to hunt for their food, and while domestic cats have it much easier they still benefit from the stimulation that comes from the hunt. Incorporating a puzzle feeder in addition to a bowl encourages your cat to work for her food, stimulating her mind and body and helping her live her True Nature.
New Engineering University (NEU) is a new breed of university for a new breed of engineer. We're announcing NEU along with a host of really exciting partnerships, including the Geena Davis Institute. Geena herself will be part of our team to address how engineering education can and will be re-engineered by NEU.
A Milwaukee startup focusing on Solar USB Power. We ran a wildly successful Kickstart for our Folding USB Solar Cells. At our booth we'll be showing off our solar USB charging solutions and setups. We believe that our solar cells are the perfect item for campers, hikers, and emergency preparedness.
Centennial Challenges is NASA's multi-million-dollar prize competition program that engages citizen inventors, academia and small businesses to solve problems that benefit NASA and the nation. Program Manager Sam Ortega will be speaking in a panel discussion — NASA: Challenging America To Invent — and the program will have an exhibit space throughout the event.
Formlabs makes the Form 1 3D-printer, a high-resolution desktop stereolithographic (SL) printer. Stop by to look at amazingly high-resolution parts, learn about designing your own complex assemblies, lightpipes, and other awesome pieces made possible with high-resolution SL printing!
NASA's grand challenge: find all asteroid threats to human population and know what to do about them. Unlike traditional missions, this grand challenge is driven by the idea that protecting our planet is an issue bigger than any one program, mission or country. It is something that will take all of us to solve. These public-private partnerships represent a new way of doing business for NASA and a call to action for Makers: join us to become a critical part of the future of space exploration.
Meet the Makers of NYSCI and learn about the design and DiY-focused programs we run year-round. Make your own instrument, glider or under water robot. Play with perspective. Design with motion. Encounter robotic insects.
Look at these patterns and tell us what you see. There are no wrong answers. This series grew out of an interest in how flat patterns, viewed from a cubist perspective, take on a figurative appearance. India ink on paper.
