A Revolution in the Making

Presenter

Traditional retail involves guesswork, forecasting, and often times a lot of wastage in inventory and shipping costs. Makers "going pro" are looking for a new approach to manufacturing that allows for 'made-to-order' merchandise and thus supports local manufacturing rather than the traditional 'pick, pack, and ship' model for e-commerce. Zazzle co-founder Jeff Beaver and partner Klaus Wegener, Co-Founder of Caseable, will share how Zazzle's platform is transforming the commerce experience for customers from a 'buy' model to a 'make' model.

Don’t Forget Your Camera: Lessons Learned in Documentation

Presenter

Of all the once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, one of the easiest to prepare for is the creation of your next project. Like every such event, you should have lots of pictures of the process and your only chance is now. After making the novice mistakes of relying on fuzzy photographs of a (temporarily) working circuit with an iPhone 2G and arranging for people to demonstrate a piece without taking lighting into account, Elizabeth wants to spare you the same agonies. Learn why, what, and how to document your next great project. Elizabeth will share opportunities missed, lessons learned, specific tips for documenting your next great project.


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.
