You can hack the brain to do new tricks if you know the places where old school mysticism like ''school'' and hypnosis and psychoanalysis and astrology and pavlovian training meet NEUROSCIENCE. Rubber band, magnet, tape, candy, coffee, vitamins and a few exercises can change your brain. We'll show you how.
In this presentation we will dig into the foundations: ultra-low power design based on Arduino*, future power sources like energy harvesting, and simplified wireless communication to your favored smartphone based on Bluetooth* SMART aka BLE. Projects like fitness tracker, plant monitoring and most of your fantastic ideas are made possible within minutes. The reference design includes a motion coprocessor and sensors for barometric / humidity - all powered by a few uA (micro!). The SD*card sized PCB will be available under OHW.
SpaceGAMBIT is a 2 year $500k US Govt (DARPA) grant funded project to get makers involved in Space education, research and development. We will present summary of the projects funded in first year and talk about our 2nd year projects. n The first of our year 2 endeavors is a ''Portable Workstation Contest'' with Instructables.com which will be concluding about the time of the Bay Area Maker Faire.
We provide innovative learning spaces that put the student first, and encourage them to have an entrepreneurial spirit that is supported by the Rutgers University Community and NJ Community of Makers.
The New Flesh Workshop has spent the last 5 years adapting prosthetic fabrication techniques and developing new processes for creating high strength composite armor systems, custom prosthetic modifications for extreme lifestyles . We will present several of our custom ballistic composite materials as well as demonstrate our new armor system. We will also have a slide presentation of several of our custom prosthetic and orthotic devices.
This EMG controlled robotic hand was just a project - shown at Maker Faire - until earlier this year. Now, it is on its way to become a consumer product, at a fraction of the cost of today's "advanced prosthetics."
MindRider is a brain-reading bike helmet developed at the MIT Media Lab that converts a cyclist's EEG levels into an LED display. It also geo-locates the EEG data so that cyclists can review their "Experience Maps" later. For Maker Faire, Catherine Cramer and Stephen Uzzo of the NY Hall of Science will place MindRiders on various Makers throughout the Faire to study the "Maker's Brain." We'll show and discuss our findings during the presentation.
How to convert used cooking oil into fuel for use inrnunmodified diesel engines, modified heating oil burners, and tuned turbine engines. As well as how to make your own processor using commonly available hardware.
