Learn all about the physics of flight, basic circuitry, Arduinos and controlling motors by building your own cheap, easy to build, open-source, fully-functional air-crafts, hovercrafts & quadcopters. Come build one with us! Also come learn about our kickstarter project, TeslaTruck, a mobile maker-space for the masses!
Measure pollution levels throughout MakerFaire using personal air monitoring pods. This interactive exhibit will seek help from attendees to map out pollution levels. Learn about air quality pollution and monitoring.
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?
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!
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.
It's time for consumer manufacturing to speed up to meet consumer needs. Beyond rapid prototyping, 3D printing will allow product cycles to speed up, which will lead to better, more innovative products. Designers can be more responsive to consumer feedback, bringing us to a new era of responsive product design. 3D printing allows anyone to map an idea from concept to production more quickly than before and with direct feedback from consumers
New design startup bhold will illustrate with prototypes, demos & showcase of final products.
We are bringing color to the 3D printing experience. Color-morphing plastic responds to heat; Decapede electronics drive up to 10 extruders; and bold casing colors could broaden the appeal of having a 3D printer in your home
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.
My project is a Carousel Band Organ, called Celebration. It has 122 hand crafted pipes of brass and wood. The pipes resonate and speak by air pressure. It uses 3 micros; Arduino Mega, Arduino Uno, Midio128 controller, and is operated wirelessly via a custom Android tablet app.
Students present Sumo Robots; "How to Talk to a Robot" Visual Basic robotics instruction; Solid Doodle; Sumo Robots & ESRA 3-D printed Robot Head on Thingiverse; Hack-A-Toy robot construction techniques; Raspi PiFace Digital
