Hollowed Grove is a kinetic and interactive sculptural installation which encourage questions concerning designed obsolescence, resource usage, and the economies of scale utilized in manufacturing.
CORMUG has been holding free monthly meetups at the Columbus Idea Foundry since 2009. Everyone is welcome to attend whether you own a printer, want to buy a printer, or just want to see what 3D printing is all about.
Students at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School worked after school over a two week period to build an electric kart. They came into the project with few tools, little knowledge of how electric vehicles worked or how to build one. They drove their kart at the Cape Cod Maker Faire. We will discuss the project, its challenges and successes. They got help from experts, and sourced materials from unusual places.
Nyckki is an architectural model project of a mega skyscraper with over 1,000 floors. It has some lighting controlled by Arduino modules and some hands-on activities related to operating a small crane/lift.rnrn

Come design a castle or your dream home in minutes on a tablet, then see it print on our 3d printer. We'll show you how to go from an idea to a real printed model, and let you know how to get the app and the printer.
As a sophomore, I developed all aspects of a more inexpensive, intuitive, and attainable 3D printer, combining engineering, electronics, software development, material science, and design.
Make a muscle for a wind-powered robot. A wind rotor made from two disposable cups twists up a loop of high-tech fishing line to make it powerfully contract. Uses hot-melt adhesives, wire bending, and knot tying.

Common household appliances break or become obsolete. Good materials get used once or not at all. Come aboard the Physics Bus to see everyday stuff reincarnated into exhibits that showcase unusual physics phenomena.
Join MoMath in creating amazing human-plus-scale geometric structures that take on three-dimensional forms through a combination of tension and compression. Learn how to combine PVC and bungee cords in dramatic new ways!
Fred Kahl, aka Coney Island's famed Great Fredini will discuss his exploration of 3D printing including the invention of his open source hardware full body scanning rig, Scan-A-Rama 3D Portrait Studio, and the creation of the Worlds Largest Desktop 3D Printed Art Installation, a 1:13 scale model of Coney Island's Luna Park as it stood 100 years ago. The presentation's theme will underscore the role that maker culture has historically played as popular entertainment.
