Back to Meet the Makers

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.


Coke Zero & Mentos Fountains

Exhibit

See the original Internet sensation LIVE! Geysers of soda shoot over twenty feet into the air in this spectacular mint-powered version of the Bellagio Fountains.


Cooperative Phonograph inside Mylar Dome

Exhibit

Flynn's Cooperative Phonograph uses forgotten 19th century audio tech in a sculpted experience cooperative that fosters a sense of community in public spaces.

Cultivar’s RainCloud

Exhibit

RainCloud provides you comfort and joy by observing garden conditions, optimizing growing environments and sharing what you produce.


Delta Faucet

Exhibit

At Delta Faucet, we believe there are better ways to experience water. This conviction goes beyond design to incorporate smart thinking that anticipates people's needs - from the intuitive capacitance technology inside our touch faucets to the science of fluidics, which helps shape every drop of water in our H2Okinetic showers. Visit us at Maker Faire to meet the engineers behind our most popular innovations and experience the cutting edge of water technology in the home for yourself.

DIY Health Technology Hands-on Demo

Exhibit

Come play with DIY Health Technology made at MITs Little Devices Lab. Devices include: legofluidics, solar instrument sterilization and pop-up biosensor kiosks. We're also bring materials, tools and engineers to help you design your own DIY Health Technology at the Medical Making Help Desk.


DNA Makers

Exhibit

We are a family that enjoy making DNA models and crafts that are educational, artistic and fun to play for children as well as for adults. The models are built using LEGO pieces, paper, PVC pipes, knitting materials and LED


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.


Electron Discharger

Exhibit

The machine I have built is called the Electron Discharger. With a single touch I can discharge a static build up of electricity. The shock is enough to disable small devices and even corrupt data.


EMG controlled prosthetic hand

Exhibit

EMG controlled robotic hand - with intuitive individual digit control and pattern recognition


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


EngageSense

Exhibit

EngageSense shows the future potential of biosensing in classroom settings, demonstrating how sensing biometrics with standard webcams can give teachers additional tools to tailor lesson plans and improve student engagement.


Experiment Your Way to a Better Life

Presenter

Crafting and making isn't just for objects. You can also make/craft/invent a better personality, a stronger sense of ethics and new habits. I'll talk about how my various experiments (Biblical Living, Extreme Health) changed me. I'll discuss how important the ethos of experimentation is, and how it overlaps with the Maker movement.


Explore Careers in Welding Trailer

Exhibit

The Careers in Welding Trailer is the only mobile exhibit on the road today that offers an educational experience for young people to educate them on the career opportunities in the welding industry. It includes five Lincoln VRTEX 360 virtual welding simulator stations and other interactive educational exhibits.


FIRST Robotics Competition Team 806

Exhibit

The Xaverian High School Brooklyn Blacksmiths' 2013 FRC robot, the Companion Cube, is loaded with 4 frisbees by a human player, is driven wirelessly, and deposits frisbees in a goal 2 feet high via a pneumatic piston.


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.


Formlabs

Exhibit

Formlabs makes the Form 1 3D-printer, a high-resolution desktop stereolithographic (SL) printer. Stop by to look at amazingly high-resolution parts, learn about designing your own complex assemblies, lightpipes, and other awesome pieces made possible with high-resolution SL printing!


Fractal Kit

Exhibit

Fractal Kit is your gateway to the exciting dimensions where science, math, and art collide. Through a series of fun mind-stretching activities, the kit will be your guide to all sorts of fascinating patterns in nature.


Fractured Atlas

Exhibit

We're a national organization that supports folks at every level of the cultural ecosystem. - See more at: http://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/about/#sthash.iiHYEiUN.dpuf
