Autodesk

Exhibit

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?


BioBus

Exhibit

The BioBus is a high-tech science lab on wheels powered by renewable energy! Come see how solar panels, a wind turbine and waste vegetable oil can power an incredible hands-on science experience.


Brown Dog Solar

Exhibit

A Milwaukee startup focusing on Solar USB Power. We ran a wildly successful Kickstart for our Folding USB Solar Cells. At our booth we'll be showing off our solar USB charging solutions and setups. We believe that our solar cells are the perfect item for campers, hikers, and emergency preparedness.


Build It Green!NYC

Exhibit

Build It Green!NYC will be crafting with usable second hand building materials, reclaimed from NYC construction projects. And for all those excess building materials not needed after the Faire is over, we'll collect those too


Build LAB: Making at the Scale of Buildings

Presenter

Founded in 2013 in the Myers-Lawson School of Building Construction, Build LAB is focused on applying digital production and manufacturing techniques at the small and medium scale to the big problems of construction. Product development, industrial design, information technology, and DIY have all found innovations using these tools and techniques, buildings are next.
This presentation covers the LAB from founding and benchmarking through establishment and equipping with a focus on the process of creating an intentional community of innovation.


Cloud Machines

Exhibit

The Cloud Machine is a personal device for weather modification. It is sent up into the atmosphere in a weather-balloon payload to make small temporary clouds. The Cloud Collector collects cloud samples.

Our project discusses the use of cameras attached to a kite in order to grab aerial shots of a project site in a rural area.


Dumpster + Design = Home Sweet Home

Presenter

How do we equip the current generation with the sustainability skills they need to address the 'grand challenges' such as climate change? We think hands-on, design-centered challenges are the key - and that's why we got a used dumpster. From design to implementation, students will use innovative math and science curricula to help Professor Dumpster transform the barely habitable garbage container into a sustainable house and interactive teaching lab. Professor Dumpster will need all the help he can get because he's about to make the dumpster his new home address!


Electricity on Tap: Emergency & Supplemental Power

Exhibit

Use Electric Vehicle (EV) technology and Arduino controls to dramatically reduce the economic and environmental impact of using emergency power generators to compensate for saturated, unreliable, or nonexistent power grids.


Energy on Tap: Emergency and Supplemental Power

Presenter

Wider adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles is bringing advances to electricity storage, charging technology and generator management . I'll explain how these technologies can be applied outside just transportation, with applications from urban to rural, overpopulated to the barely inhabited.nI'll describe the enabling technologies and the tools we developed for Electricity Storage applications, particularly our Arduino- and internet-enabled CANbus controller library and device configuration files. We aim to jumpstart a development community for electricity storage that lets Makers create new uses for the technology in many situations


Fallen Made Reclaimed Furniture

Exhibit

We're a small team of two, who both have a passion for the environment and using our hands to portray our ideas and bring them to life through furniture pieces.


Farm Hack-a community for resilient agriculture

Exhibit

Farm Hack is about enabling sustainable farms to build, create, or obtain the scale appropriate tools they need. We bring together farmers and makers together to document tool online and in person.


Farm Hack: A Community for Open-Source Farm Tool Innovation

Presenter

Farm Hack is about enabling sustainable farms to build, create, or obtain the scale appropriate tools they need. We bring together farmers and makers together to document tool online and in person.n nWe are excited to engage more Makers with our community, to show them how we've taken open-source principles and applied them to farm tools. We hope to inspire Makers to channel some of their energies into projects that can help solve problems faced by their local farm and to attend Farm Hack events in their region!


Fixers Collective

Exhibit

The Fixers Collective is an ongoing social experiment encouraging improvisational fixing and mending and fighting planned obsolescence.


Frankenbike and friends

Exhibit

Home built recumbent bicycles that break with tradition. (even by recumbent standards). Come try Blendy, a human powered blender.


FUNDACION PROMEDIO

Exhibit

We are a Colombia based non-profit organization that seeks the balance between what is missing and what is left.rnOur mission is to develop and enhance cultural and creative projects to protect our environment.


GrowNYC Green Team

Exhibit

To reduce the environmental impact of Maker Faire and create even more of an educational opportunity for all Maker attendees to take charge in waste reduction and environmental sustainability in an informed and empowered way.
