Back to Meet the Makers

Brain Hacking

Presenter

New understanding of the brain is making it more hackable, launching us into the realm of sci-fi possibilities. We will talk about the brain's pinouts and wiring, along with its mechanisms for change (i.e. learning). We will then discuss various technologies and techniques currently being used to interface with the brain and augment human potential in amazing ways.


BramsonORT: study electronics, computers, robotics

Exhibit

BramsonORT welcomes high school students to come and visit to see our technical students and meet our faculty


Brooklyn Robot Foundry

Exhibit

Come build robots with us! We offer weekend classes, after school programs, summer sessions, open play and birthday parties. We also have a retail shop that specializes in cool engineering toys, games and gear.


Brown Dog Solar

Exhibit

A Milwaukee startup focusing on Solar USB Power. We ran a wildly successful Kickstart for our Folding USB Solar Cells. At our booth we'll be showing off our solar USB charging solutions and setups. We believe that our solar cells are the perfect item for campers, hikers, and emergency preparedness.


Browsercize

Exhibit

Browsercize promotes healthy computer work habits by prompting its user to take physical-exercise breaks. The computer's internet browser locks the user out of its use until he/she touches his/her toes 10 times.


Build a Fitness Tracker with Ultra-Low-Power Arduino

Presenter

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.


Build An Energy Scooter with PS 107

Presenter

Fourth and fifth grade students at PS 107 have built scooters from scratch and designed devices to capture and harness the scooters' energy when they are ridden. Come to our presentation and we will share our designs with you.


Burnkit2600

Performer

Burnkit2600 have been experimenting with electronics and carving their own musical niche since 1997. Elements of circuit-bending, analog wizardry and chip music combine to make a one of a kind mix.


Caipei Cao, Hanfang Cao

Performer

We are couple with age of over 70.nWe are inventor and maker.nThe devices for performing include a lot of invention and hands on making.nThe promotion is for inspire the student intelligencen


Can be assembled in minutes!

Exhibit

The first 3D printer that can be assembled almost without screws and nuts. Very fast to put together, different colors, stand alone (no need for computer), option for dual extruder.


Celebration – playing the Happiest Music On Earth

Exhibit

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.


Central Jersey Robotics Group

Exhibit

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


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.


Children Are Teaching Adults to Make Again

Presenter

Ayah Bdeir, founder and CEO of littleBits, has long been a part of the maker movement and has lead several STEAM initiatives. She has observed how quickly young children can take to building with electronics and craft materials. A child's innate desire to create and transcend boundaries is something adults can learn from.
In this presentation, Ayah will combine the lessons she's learned with ongoing trends. She will also announce the winners of the littleBits Global Makeathon.


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.


ClothBot Designs

Exhibit

Open, hackable personal 3D printing lets you embrace and extend the technology in new and unexpected ways. Fuse plastic on paper to make lamp shades and glider wings, or print finger bones into fabric to make robot hands.rn


CoLaboratory Projects at UNIS

Exhibit

Elementary School Maker Projects from United Nations International School's CoLaboratory.


Color Life

Exhibit

Inspired by the Game of Life, each edge on this sculpture draws its color from its neighbors. Touch one of the boards and alter the pattern!
