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.
Have you thought about implementing maker programs in your library? Idaho Commission for Libraries is supporting the implementation of makerspaces in eleven public libraries across the state in year two of the project. The project includes training on tools & technology, leveraging partnerships, involving community, and evaluating outcomes. The results include formal & stealth programming incorporating engineering, robotics, 3D printing & other STEAM topics to draw community members into these innovative programs and spaces! Come discover what Idaho is doing, what we are learning, and what's next.
What impact will real-time consumer feedback have on manufacturing? Mickey McManus will talk about building a 3D printer that makes customized OREO cookies on the fly. Microfactories hooked into the social network may soon revolutionize making.
HexLab Makerspace is the newest makerspace in Los Angeles. We offer access to creative technologies such as 3D printers/scanners, laser cutters, mold making, resin & metal casting, vinyl cutting and large-format printing.
Carl Bass is CEO of 3D design and engineering software company Autodesk. Bass is a maker and spends his spare time building things—from chairs and tables to boats, and most recently, an electric go-kart. He'll talk about the tools that anyone can use to bring their ideas into the physical world--from CAD software to rapid prototyping by 3D printer to CNC.n
Not Impossible believes in technology for the sake of humanity. Our most recent project, Project Daniel, used 3D printers to make prosthetic arms and hands for children of war in Sudan. #HelpOneHelpMany
modio, it's the new app that lets you design & customize incredible creatures and turn them into toys using a desktop 3D printer. Easy to use drag and drop functionality lets you build creatures, characters and constructs free-form or from pre-designed templates. Customization features including surface textures let you personalize your creation and then with the press of a button, your parts are magically sorted by color and prepped to print. So the app is fun but the outcome is also outstanding. With modio, you get to play! These creations are printed bit by bit and designed to snap together and provide some pretty amazing pose-ability.
ledwork are highly tangible lights that respond to touch and movement. Connected together they form a swarm of light in which new patterns constantly emerge. This invites to observe, explore and construct new physical configu
MIT has sent their Mobile Fab Lab across the country and is currently making its home in San Diego. This bus-sized laboratory comes equipped with everything needed to start a Fab Lab, included a 4'x8' ShopBot!
iQuad is a quadcopter with wings that can transition from a hovering mode to an efficient airplane-like forward flight mode. It is controlled using Arducopter, and has a carbon fiber body with 3D-printed wings.
Chill in the distributed manufacturing future, when we'll ship information and not stuff! See the first generations of digitally fabricated, open source furniture and houseware designs. Ready for download and local making.
We are a new neighborhood Mini-Makerspace in downtown San Francisco. We are purposely small at 2,500 square feet so makers and hackers can easily get to know each other. We are a community of hackers that love collaborating.
