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.
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.
"Modular Arduino Prototyping System" we often think and solve problems modules, with this you can prototype modules.rn"7-Segment Doomsday Clock" countdown clock useful for counting down to life events, or just scaring your rn
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!
BBot! An open source, remote controlled, drink serving robot that features great examples of how to: interface hardware to a BeagleBone Black, use an FPGA cape, make a .NET GUI that links to the bot via XBee's and more!
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.
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.
Ayah Bdeir, founder and CEO of littleBits, has long been a part of the maker movement and has lead several STEAM initiatives. She has observed how quickly young children can take to building with electronics and craft materials. A child's innate desire to create and transcend boundaries is something adults can learn from.
In this presentation, Ayah will combine the lessons she's learned with ongoing trends. She will also announce the winners of the littleBits Global Makeathon.
Open, hackable personal 3D printing lets you embrace and extend the technology in new and unexpected ways. Fuse plastic on paper to make lamp shades and glider wings, or print finger bones into fabric to make robot hands.rn
Deltaprintr is a new affordable 3D Printer that uses lasercut parts and a new approach to lower costs of 3D Printers by getting rid of belts in place of a fishing line, which makes it far more accurate as well.
