The AeroQuad is an open source quadcopter/multicopter project which provides freely available software and hardware designs, with a friendly and helpful online community since 2009. Turn your Arduino into a flying quacopter!
Measure pollution levels throughout MakerFaire using personal air monitoring pods. This interactive exhibit will seek help from attendees to map out pollution levels. Learn about air quality pollution and monitoring.
This is a low cost Open Source DIY Autonomous Car Kit. It can be assembled into a fully functional Arduino controlled autonomous car complete with sensors and lights. It can also work in the RC and Hybrid Modes.
This exhibit demonstrates how time is kept and distributed, from time-balls to radio and GPS. Ever wonder how your cellphone always has the correct time? Why they drop a time-ball on New Years Eve? Find out at this exhibit.
Arduino was developed for education, and a we have a strong mission to support educators teaching with and about Arduino. This presentation is an opportunity for educatos to tell the Arduino company what support they would like us to provide.
Autodesk 123D is free software integrated with content and fabrication services. At Maker Faire NY Autodesk will be hosting a hands on makerspace where participants can have hands on experiences with our free apps and 3d printers. We also will be hosting an educational hack-a-thon where educators will be answering the question ""How do you use a 3D printer in your classroom?
Scared of Surface Mount Components? At Maker Faire, Beta LAYOUT will be taking the fear out of SMD assembly for hobbyists and small batch electronics. At our workshop, you will assemble and reflow a PCB to make a flashing badge. Our workstation is easy, safe and can make your workbench into a professional assembly line.
Beta LAYOUT has been servicing hobbyists, designers and students for over 20 years with PCBs and other components for electronic designers. By combining our many orders we have cut costs, eliminated tooling and shared the savings with designers globally. Prototypes made easy, as our 30,000 customers might say.
The BlueStamp Engineering: Where Students Create! rnEach student finds their own individual project builds it over 6 weeks with supporting videos and documentation under the supervision of experienced makers.
Taming power consumption of billion of connected devices in the near future will be key. In this presentation we will dig into the low level optimization of an Arduino - you will learn about the tools to do so. Alternate power sources like coin cell and super caps will be used and a wireless communication to your favored smartphone based on Bluetooth(TM) SMART established. Projects like fitness tracker, plant monitoring sensors and most of your fantastic ideas becoming possible - easily. The used PCB design will be made available under OHW.
My project is a Carousel Band Organ, called Celebration. It has 122 hand crafted pipes of brass and wood. The pipes resonate and speak by air pressure. It uses 3 micros; Arduino Mega, Arduino Uno, Midio128 controller, and is operated wirelessly via a custom Android tablet app.
