Introducing Intel Edison

Presenter

Intel Edison technology packs a robust set of features into its small size -- delivering great performance, durability, and a broad spectrum of I/O and software support. Those versatile features help meet the needs of a wide range of makers and pro-makers. Jim will provide an introduction to using Linux* with the Intel Edison technology's hardware, software, and cloud capabilities. In addition, he will outline how the new Intel Edison board, paired with a number of expansion boards, can support the thousands of ideas on the cusp of being invented.



Ask the GPS expert

Exhibit

Ask the GPS (and GNSS) Trimble experts questions about the Global Positioning System and the Global Navigation Satellite System. L1/L2/L5 GPS, L1/L2 GLONASS, E1/E5 Galileo... How all these can be useful for your project.




Kettlebug

Exhibit

The Kettlebug is a fitness tracker you don't have to wear. It sits on your kettlebell and tracks repetitions, pace, rest, and more, helping you build muscle along with healthy exercise habits. Visit our booth and try it out!


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.



Reapproach personal transportation for short distances

Presenter

Current transportation options for short distance travel within 5 miles range all have their shortcomings, whether they are energy inefficient, polluting, time consuming, or physically exhausting. We at EcoReco would like to demonstrate our take to solve this last miles issue. nEcoReco M3 is an eco-friendly, efficient, portable, and smart electric vehicle in the form of a kick scooter, designed for everyday urban use of an adult. It has performance one desires, and it is still compact, lightweight, safe, and easy to use. nIt provides a convenient and economic ride for everyone, and cleaner air for all.


Success and failure, two sides of the same coin

Presenter

Technology is speeding up, and makers of today already have little in common with the makers of yesterday. But one thing unites us: our passion for the new, for the untried
It is our biggest strength, as well as our most dangerous weakness. You work for months on that stunning project, and realize too late that no one really cares. Or maybe just mom
At the speed the world is going, you need to realize quickly if you are headed the right way, and build your product even faster
At BotFactory we decided to tackle part of that problem by building a rapid electronic circuit prototyper. Let me share a few tips I learned along the way.


Learning by Discovery

Presenter

My book Make: Electronics encouraged readers to learn through hands-on projects that were fun and innovative. My new book, Make: More Electronics, extends this journey. It includes unique experiments with op-amps, comparators, logic chips, and sensors. The projects are entirely original and unlike those that you will find in most electronics-hobby books.


Onewheel

Exhibit

Onewheel - The Self-Balancing, Electric SkateboardrnrnInspired by snowboarding on fresh powder and dreams of hoverboarding, Onewheel produces a completely new riding experience.


Programming Arduino from Your Browser

Presenter

There's an option for programming Arduino that requires less set up and promotes collaboration. We'll look at using the codebender web system to program a beginner board. This system allows for easy sharing of code and has allowed us to move our book to the internet in an engaging way. Share, edit and upload your sketches from one system. Using codebender with the Arno board makes it easy to get students started with Arduino
