Purina ONE

Exhibit

Visitors to the Purina ONE booth at Maker Faire will have the opportunity to create and invent their own do-it-yourself (DIY) puzzle feeder projects to help enrich the feeding experiences of their cats; gather inspiration from the DIY wall u2013 a gallery of projects created from Purina ONE's cat community; and interact with a fun and shareable area at the booth. What you feed your cat is just as important as HOW you feed your cat. Cats are designed to hunt for their food, and while domestic cats have it much easier they still benefit from the stimulation that comes from the hunt. Incorporating a puzzle feeder in addition to a bowl encourages your cat to work for her food, stimulating her mind and body and helping her live her True Nature.

The Frontier

Exhibit

The Frontier: If you can Make it Mars, you can Make it anywhere

Leaving the Earth's atmosphere, traversing over 35 million miles, and descending onto the Martian landscape are all tremendous challenges...But just getting there is only the beginning. The very same challenges we face on Earth - social, environmental, political to name a few - will need to be addressed for colonization to be successful.

The Frontier, a collaboration between openNASA, [ freespace ], EkoVillages and ReAllocate, aims to inspire participation and engagement in these themes, and prototype solutions to those problems mirrored here on Earth. From speaking with Astronauts, to painting, modelling and printing your view of a Martian Colony, there will be something to Inspire everyone!

Come help Make the Frontier!
