Back to Meet the Makers

B9Creations

Exhibit

The B9Creator is an open source hardware/software high resolution 3D Printer. The B9Creator combines innovative methods with off the shelf DLP technology to produce parts that compare with machines costing thousands more. A wide range of photo-polymer based resins can be used to obtain the material properties desired. From resins that are suitable for lost wax casting applications to very reactive "fast grow" resins for quick proto-typing. No other machine comes close to offering the flexibility and low entry cost. Launched in early spring of 2012, the B9Creator has been delivered and is in use by hundreds of satisfied users already and enjoys the largest resin based printer user community anywhere. Don't wait any longer, get printing "hi-res" today!

EarthMake

Exhibit

EarthMake is a division of Earth Computer Technologies, Inc. a maker of industrial and embedded LCD products. EarthMake's vision is to introduce EarthLCD technology to the Maker Market through special products, application and special end of life deals on LCD displays and electronics to control them. The award winning ezLCD technology from EarthLCD, is the basis of the first EarthMake product. At the World Maker Fair in 2012 we introduce the arLCD (formerly ArduinoLCD) to the Maker marketplace. The arLCD combines the EarthLCD award wining ezLCD smart LCD technology with an Arduino UNO for only $89. We feel that the ability to integrate a color touchscreen GUI into a project will draw more people into the Maker and Arduino marketplaces. While the first product we hope to offer affordable LCD solutions of all kinds to the Maker marketplace.

Post-Crowdfunding Conundrum: Where Do We Go From Here?

Presenter

Imagine you're an inventor. After blood, sweat and tears, you have launched your new product online and successfully crowdfunded your way to success. Now what? Crowdfunding can only take a new product so far. How companies will scale and deliver on their promise is an issue all too often overlooked by bright eyed, bushy-tailed entrepreneurs who have just hit a homerun in their campaign. This is where products can fall flat and where The Grommet can help avoid that very real possibility. They can pick up where crowdfunding left off and ensure long term success through supercharged amplification of the story behind the product.
