Intel Futurist Brian David Johnson presents Jimmy the robot. Jimmy was born in science fiction, but he's open source, he's 3D printable, and he's made to interact with humans. What's more, he'll be walking and talking by this November.
I made a 3d body scanner for my final last year at school. I just took it to SIGGRAPH 2013 in Anaheim, CA. Everyone really liked it. I can scan you in 3d and then print you out with a 3d printer. You get a action figure of yourself!
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!
Robert Scoble believes we are entering a new era: the age of context. It's a freaky, contextual world he envisions in his
keynote talk at NEXT Berlin 2013. Don't be fooled by the hype It's way more than just Google Glasses.
Learn all about the physics of flight, basic circuitry, Arduinos and controlling motors by building your own cheap, easy to build, open-source, fully-functional air-crafts, hovercrafts & quadcopters. Come build one with us! Also come learn about our kickstarter project, TeslaTruck, a mobile maker-space for the masses!
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.
The Raspberry Pi makes for an ideal platform for designing your own musical instruments and controllers. See what we've done with the Alcyone MIDI controller and get some ideas for your own creation.
Starting with a simple square wave oscillator Chris Kaczmarek creates custom electronic instruments. Easier to build than you may think, come play with some and get inspiration on how to make your own DIY audio circuits.
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.
'Appcessories' enable people to interact with technology like never before by helping to customize and improve the experience on their tablets, smartphones and mobile devices. In this session, we'll cover several things.
What is an appcessory?
Potential market and how Bluetooth can enable your solutions
Overview of how to get started with Bluetooth technologies from a developer's point of viewnnCome and see how Bluetooth Smart can help you deliver amazing connected experiences to your creations!
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.
