ROBOTIC FASHION and INTIMATE INTERFACES

Presenter

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.



Building Idaho Makers – A Statewide Approach for Libraries

Presenter

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.




Making/CAD: Shaping Atoms Using Bits

Presenter

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




Meet Modio, a new app that lets you design and print your own toys at home

Presenter

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.




The SandBox 3D Printer

Exhibit

The SandBox is an open-source powder 3D printer that uses familiar RAMPS architecture and HP inkjet heads to print 3D models. Our new open sourced software is flexible enough to support home brew printers, as well as SLS exp




3D welder

Exhibit

A 3D printer, box style, approximately 2 feet square. The main frame is built from welded steel square tubing. Motion and welding is controlled with a TinyG board and software.




RockIT CoLabs

Exhibit

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.
