UDOO

Exhibit

UDOO is a joint effort of SECO USA Inc. (www.seco.com ) and Aidilab (www.aidilab.com), in collaboration with a multidisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in interaction design, embedded electronics, sensor networks and cognitive science, who along the years have worked together in several projects sharing the same vision about the role of technology in human life, and are now spread between Europe and United States.

UDOO merges different computing worlds in one; each world has its strengths and weaknesses, and all of them are useful today in education as well as Do-It-Yourself (DIY) and rapid prototyping endeavours.
UDOO is an open hardware low-cost single-board Android/Linux ARM computer with Arduino-compatible integration.



Purina ONE

Exhibit

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.














Means to an End: The Convergence of Japanese and Western Woodworking Tools

Presenter

Japanese and western woodworking traditions developed completely separately from each other, resulting in different styles, methods, and tools. But even with this parallel development, some striking similarities can be found between the two types of woodworking. This presentation will show how Japanese and western woodworking tools are often much more similar than they appear, with implications for makers looking for the best method of work.



Tools for Working Wood

Performer

Joel Moskowitz of Tools for Working Wood demonstrates how to sharpen woodworking tools such as chisels, plane blades, and carving tools. The tools required are minimal and can be as simple as some sheets of sandpaper.
