PedX

Exhibit

PedX is a device for families worried about crossing the street safely with small kids. Attached to a stroller, PedX alerts vehicles to your presence via a bright LED, horn & one-touch camera for taking photos of bad drivers.


The Botler

Exhibit

The Botler is a CNC machine with a modular head and software design, enabling milling, 3D printing, and laser engraving on the same device. It also makes common cutting and measuring task easier through a simple web app.


OpenROV – Underwater Robots!

Exhibit

OpenROV is a open-source underwater robot. But it's so much more. It's also a community of people who are working together to create more accessible, affordable, and awesome tools for underwater exploration.



Developing with JavaScript on the Arduino TRE

Presenter

Vision-capable Twitter bots? Smart-phone controlled door locks? LED sign with Facebook status? Learn how to use JavaScript to simplify development and web integration. The Arduino TRE runs a full Debian Linux distribution with tools like Node.JS, making it an excellent platform for ditching the laptop from your next Arduino project.


Networked Mobile Robots with Python or JavaScript on BeagleBone

Presenter

Building mobile robots keeps getting easier and easier, but we are also expecting them to do more and more. Start with high-level languages like Python and JavaScript to help make integration with everything else on the Internet easier This presentation is a rapid-fire tour of how people are building robots today using BeagleBone Black. It covers controlling your bot from a web page including a game controller and streaming video and audio from your bot, range finding and collision sensing, determining motion and orientation, determining amount of wheel rotation, network connectivity, web API integration and vision processing.


Using the BeagleBone Real-Time Microcontrollers

Presenter

Unlike the Raspberry Pi, there's no need to add an external microcontroller to do real-time interfacing or processing tasks on the BeagleBone Black. The built-in Programmable Real-time Units (PRUs) in the BeagleBone Black have single-cycle access to many of the pins on the cape expansion headers and can access all the on-board peripherals, such as the pulse-width modulators and analog-to-digital converters. That means you can easily create real-time controllers such as an autopilot or massive LED display driver without needing to be a Linux expert, without losing the ability to program your other tasks in high-level languages.



Cylon.js: The JavaScript Evolution Of Open Source Robotics

Presenter

The robotics revolution has already begun. You can even buy drones and robotic devices at local retail stores. Unfortunately, it has been too hard to develop code for robots, and nearly impossible to create solutions that integrate multiple different kind of devices.
That is why we created Cylon.js, a JavaScript framework for open source robotics & the Internet of Things. Cylon.js makes it easy to write apps that communicate with many different kinds of hardware devices all at the same time. The time has come for the next generation of open source robotics, and Cylon.js can help lead the way!


PersonaLED

Exhibit

Wearable, interactive LED display panels. Some built completely from scratch, others using the now-common WS2812 programmable LEDs. Display your mood, play a game, wear your twitter feed, light up everyone's night!


Wearable Dog Gear

Exhibit

Modern technology used in wearable and mobile electronics is accessible to Makers to build and create via the Beagle Bone boards. This provides demonstrations of how makers have leveraged these advances in wearable projects.




Got Robots?

Exhibit

Got Robots? We do, amongst them Glider, a six-legged robot with the ability to both skate and walk, a Halloween Monster Shooting Gallery, and a global army of shoulder sitting monkeys...
