Virtual Bike

Exhibit

VirtualBike is a innovative installation that merges a real bike with a realistic but virtual world. Multiple sensors will permit you to interact with this new dimension while exploring new exotic cities around the world.





3D printed robots who learn

Presenter

What if you could teach a robot to perform a task, a sort of on-the-job training? Brain Corporations team of neuroscientists have been developing an adaptive intelligence platform that will allow anyone to teach a robot a particular task, without the need for programming or knowledge of complex algorithms. In partnership with Qualcomm, we have implemented our artificial brain on a low-power, high-performance Snapdragon processor that allows the robot to see and act in its environment. Entirely 3D printed, the robot body is a mobile inverted pendulum that was developed with the UC San Diego Coordinated Robotics lab.


Ginger Beer with Wild Fermentation

Presenter

Learn to start a ginger ''bug'' at home with organic ginger. Within days you'll be creating ginger beers and sodas with this starter culture. The possibilities for drink concoctions is endless. This recipe will change your mind about sodas pop! Add the starter culture to flavored teas, fruit juices, or ginger ale base to create delicious beverages full of beneficial bacteria for your digestive track.





Arduino

Exhibit

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects.







How to build a robot from used wheelchair and control it with your phone

Presenter

During this presentation, we will guide the audience on how we build a robot from an old used wheelchair. We will show all the needed parts, building process, and finally how to control the robot via the phone and how to let it run autonomously.rnrnPlease note that the attached picture is not of the actual project robot that we will demonstrate. The attached picture is robot in a different form factor since the Wheel Chair robot is still work in progress.



Major in Making in College

Presenter

Project-based learning is an educational innovation by which a few undergraduate engineering programs (at Olin College, Harvey Mudd College, Iron Range Engineering in Minnesota, and at Arizona State's College of Technology and Innovation) have committed to integration hands-on experiences and building projects into every year of their engineering curricula.nThe Carnegie Foundation's book Educating Engineers: Designing for the Future of the Field, by Sheri Sheppard et al., champions project-based learning (and hands-on making and building) as the progressive direction collegiate engineering programs need to go in order to make successful gradu
