Genspace community biolab is showcasing DIY lab equipment and using synthetic biology to modify living organisms. Check out the OpenTron, a DIY liquid handling robot for the lab, and other homebrew equipment.
This project is a robotic prosthetic hand developed for leprosy victims that includes a 3D printed robotic hand using InMoov CAD files and a flex sensor glove that controls servos for the robotic hand using an Arduino.
The Automated Adaptive Directed Evolution Chamber is a machine that evolves microorganisms based on a set of user defined criteria. Eventually we hope that we can make an organism tough enough to survive on Mars.
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 SBS iGEM team is using synthetic biology, an emerging field with the potential to transform how we interact with nature, to reinvent the plane in the hope of making one that is biodegradable and ecologically unobtrusive.
OpenBCI stands for open-source brain-computer interface (BCI). The OpenBCI Board is an affordable microcontroller that can be used to sample electrical brain activity (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), heart rate (EKG), and more!
In this talk we'll explore our project from v. 39 and the intersection of biology and robotics — by creating a demonstrating a remote-controlled Venus flytrap that can close its leaf on our command!nnWe'll:nn * Explain the project background, present state of biorobotics and future implicationsnn * Show how to make your own biorobotnn * Demonstrate a venus-flytrap closing on command!
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.
