Back to Meet the Makers

Chameleon Bag

Exhibit

The Chameleon Bag combines an RFID sensor and 49 RGB LEDs to create an interactive messenger bag with a reactive front panel. As a user places RFID tagged items into the bag, the front panel animates and changes color.


Chopsticking

Exhibit

A two player board game designed to test and improve one's chopsticking skills. While the sushi bowl spins, each player has 30 seconds to pick up as much sushi as possible while accurately holding the chopsticks.


City Tech Makers

Exhibit

City Tech Makers will bring Wresting Robots, Hand-controlled Candy Crane, City Tech Segway, Remote-controlled Robotic Hand, and Digilent Land Projects to this Year's NY Maker Faire


cityBoarding

Exhibit

Cityboarding is a way to never miss a bus again. A web app connected to a 3D printed bus will allow you to choose where to board.


Computational Craft from Parsons

Exhibit

Students share projects that weave traditional crafting techniques with new fabrication technologies and alternative materials to create computational craft objects. Come make with us!


Concerto No. 1

Exhibit

Concerto No. 1 explores whether a Robot can trigger the same reactions of euphoria and inspiration as a Contemporary Piece of Dance.rnrnIs writing a Piece of Code equivalent to writing a Choreography?rn


Conway’s Game of Lights

Exhibit

Conway's Game of Lights is a 20 x 10 LED grid which can be controlled by an iPad via a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino. You can draw on it with the iPad, it scrolls text, it plays Conway's Game of Life, and much more!


Creative Robotics at The Hewitt School

Exhibit

The Hewitt School is a K-12 girls school. Our computer science classes emphasize meaningful applications of programming and robotics. Students use GoGo Boards and Arduinos to solve compelling problems that they care about.



Digital Being

Exhibit

Digital Being is an invisible and formless creature born from technological garbage. It reveals itself through an atypical movement or an interaction according to the machinery that it dominates.


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.


Dual wireless data gloves

Exhibit

A pair of compact wireless data gloves allows a person to interact with a computer using both hands.


Edible Email Notifier

Exhibit

My Edible Email Notifier notifies you of the number of new emails you have by dropping M&Ms into a glass. Once the email(s) have been read, an LED lights up to indicate that you may eat the M&Ms as your reward.


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


Entertainment Technology Projects

Exhibit

New York City College of Technology, Entertainment Technology Department, Projects Demonstrating Theme Park Control Technologies and other Interactive techniques.rn


Everyone becomes an underwater explorer!

Exhibit

Explorers Wanted. Only 5% of what lives in the oceans has been discovered, yet oceans cover 70% of the earth. We make cost effective underwater tools that allows anyone to search down to 9,000ft without getting wet. Join us


Exp.Ins.X

Exhibit

Make sound and projections with this experimental instrument that is arduino-powered!


FlowX26

Exhibit

FlowX26 is a life-size version of the mobile app Flow Free. Instead of connecting circles using your finger, people will be walking on tiles that will light up. The game board is an interactive platform that reacts to steps.


Ford Transit Connect Wagon

Exhibit

We support ingenuity and the thinkers who use "remaking" to fulfill an individual vision, not only with the Ford Connect, but with anything that can be transformed to support a personal lifestyle, hobby or home business. Visit us at moversandmakers.tumblr.com.
