BBot! A remote controlled robot that talks, sees and serves drinks at the pool! And is hilarious! This open source robot design is based on the BeagleBone Black micro embedded Linux computer and has a low cost FPGA cape attached. Embedded Linux coupled with an FPGA can dramatically augment any DIY electronics design - the possibilities are practically endless when these two technologies are combined. We'll be discussing this robot's software and hardware architecture as well as highlight some of the amazing capabilities of such a platform! Come learn about these two affordable and important next generation DIY technologies!
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
In this talk, BeagleBoard.org co-founder Jason Kridner discusses how to use the OpenCV open-source library on the BeagleBone Black open-source computer to implement face detection applications and add elegant mustaches and other new features to your mug. Jason demonstrates his BeagleStache camera application as an example of this application.
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 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!
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.
Freematics stands for Free Telematics. The goal of this project is to make it possible, accessible, affordable to carry out all kinds of vehicle telematics projects with open-source hardware, more specifically Arduino.
In 2011 we launched WikiHouse - an open source construction system that aims to make it possible for anyone to download, CNC-cut & assemble their own house. WikiHouse is now a growing community for digitally fabbed housing with teams in New Zealand, France, Brazil, the US & the UK. In 2012-13 we followed WikiHouse with OpenDesk - open source design furniture made locally. OpenDesk connects digital designs with a network of fabricators able to make on demand, in response to local orders. We are now building Fabbed.com - a full platform for distributed making of design products. We're looking for designers & makers who share our vision.
gadgITERATION is a series of hands-on, student directed design workshops that encourage a creative and artistic engagement with technology through a focus on the intersection of technological and design literacies.
GeekDad.com and GeekMom.com are the parenting sites for the geek generation. We love Dr. Who and gaming and electronics and food-hacking and everything else that makes geeks passionate. We want to share these things with our kids, and ensure they know that being different is the best thing in the world.
The BeagleBone Black is a completely Open Hardware and Software single board computer for makers. Have you tried it? Come learn a bit about the BeagleBone Black and find out if it is right for your next project.n
GrannyCam is a safe, durable, videophone for kids and their grandparents. Wireless, portable, one-touch, the device is designed to be friendly and simple for both seniors and their toddler grandchildren to video chat anytime.
Introducing the "T MAX 2.0" 3D Printer - a fully open-source 3D Printer featuring 640 cu. in. build area (8"x8"x10"), heat-up time under 3 minutes, newly redesigned parts, and an innovative portable touchscreen display.
LIB3 makes SMT PCB manufacturing available to hobbyists and small businesses with a unique workflow tailored for prototype and small-run volumes. Come see our work and watch our OSHW solder paste robot build you a circuit.
Programmable hardware is key to the maker movement, but many programmable options are rigid and heavy, limiting makers' innovation potential. Flexible programmable hardware is the future and Limberboard is opening the door to innovation.
