3D printed robots who learn

Presenter

What if you could teach a robot to perform a task, a sort of on-the-job training? Brain Corporations team of neuroscientists have been developing an adaptive intelligence platform that will allow anyone to teach a robot a particular task, without the need for programming or knowledge of complex algorithms. In partnership with Qualcomm, we have implemented our artificial brain on a low-power, high-performance Snapdragon processor that allows the robot to see and act in its environment. Entirely 3D printed, the robot body is a mobile inverted pendulum that was developed with the UC San Diego Coordinated Robotics lab.




3D Printing and the Replica Prop Community

Presenter

A world exists where talented makers create replicas of props seen in film and television. Let Todd Blatt walk you through the creation of over a dozen prop replicas in all made possible by 3D printing. This talk focuses on the recreation of the Sonix Victory 75 radio for the Star Wars SandTrooper Backback, miniature replicas of Han Solo in Carbonite, Green Lantern rings, and many others. Come for a glimpse at how 3D printing is actually used by makers, and the details that people go into when creating movie prop replicas






Making it Personal: The Maker Movement and the Future of Manufacturing

Presenter

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.





Advanced Materials for 3D Printing

Presenter

A follow up to my well received presentation from the 2013 World Maker Faire. I will discuss some of my favorite 3D printing materials and present some of the new comers to the field.
