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.

sugru is the exciting new self-setting rubber that can be formed by hand. It moulds like play-dough, bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight.
Developed by a team of product designers and material scientists, sugru's patented technology is unique in its combination of hand-formability, self-adhesion and flexibility when cured. It feels like modelling clay, and it's that easy to use too. Once cured, its durable properties mean it's comfortable in extreme environments from the dishwasher to the ocean in Antarctica.

Valence(Tom De Smedt, Lieven Menschaert and Ludivine Lechat, 2011) is an interactive installation that represents the player's affect (relaxation or arousal) by measuring alpha brain waves, using a wireless EEG headset. The headset prototype is developed by Imec (BE) and Holst Centre (NL). It consists of eight dry electrodes and a wireless broadcaster.Using NodeBox for OpenGL, we developed a game environment that interprets the alpha and valence state of your brain. In a follow-up project we've expanded our setup with ambient lighting. We used a home automation server to control the lighting's intensity based on the player's affect.
