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.







MAKE | RIDE | FLY: 200 MPH in 2 HOMEMADE EVs

Presenter

Chip Yates is an internationally recognized speaker, television personality, and electric vehicle pioneer with 18 world records in battery-powered vehicles of his own design. He recently gave a sold-out TED Talk in Bermuda entitled "Risk is the Currency of Innovation" chronicling how he survived 5 emergency landings in the process of becoming the first human in history to break the 200 MPH barrier in an electric airplane. He is unique in the world in that he has designed, built and then piloted his own world record setting vehicles at speeds in excess of 200 MPH and then used his experiences to inspire audiences to embrace risk, innovation and the movement to build amazing things by hand.rnrnYates started out as a machinist and toy inventor before changing gears at age 39 to become a professional motorcycle racer in the World Superbike Championship. After a big crash ended his racing season, Yates and two volunteer engineers designed and built the world's fastest and most powerful electric motorcycle, which he rode at speeds over 200mph to Eight Official World Landspeed Records, the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb World Record and the Guinness Book of World Recordsu2122 title for "The World's Fastest Electric Motorcycle". Yates and his team made history by entering the electric motorcycle in two all-gas superbike races, beating the gas bikes to two podium finishes. After being featured on the cover of Popular Science Magazine, the electric motorcycle was donated to the Los Angeles Petersen Automotive Museum in support of their youth education programs.rnrnChip had always dreamed of flying, so he and his fabricator next designed and built "The world's most powerful electric aircraft" with a 258 HP brushless DC motor. After a two month build time and just days after receiving his pilot's license, Yates set the world record for the "World's Fastest Electric Airplane" in the skies over China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station, California at a top speed of 202.6 MPH in a flight that ended with an emergency landing. The airplane has since set 8 world records with performances that beat gasoline powered airplanes made by the world's top manufacturers. As part of these records, Yates survived 3 emergency deadstick landings, upped his top speed to 220.9 MPH, and demonstrated a sustained climb rate of 2,000 feet per minute, which was awarded the "Most Memorable Aviation Record of 2013" by the National Aeronautic Association (NAA).rnrnYates holds a Master's Degree from the University of Southern California where in 2014 he was nominated for their "Entrepreneur of the Year" award. He is a prolific inventor with more than 9 patents including 3 on the Jeep Grand Cherokee and 3 so far on advanced electric vehicles with more pending. He was selected to be an adjunct entrepreneurship instructor at USC, and is a frequent keynote and motivational speaker with a passion for delivering dynamic STEM presentations to kids through his "Rockstar of Science" National STEM tour launched in 2014. In 2013, Yates was named the first ever National Spokesman for the Conrad Foundation's Spirit of Innovation Challenge.rnrnChip has been named a "Pioneer of Aviation" by the State of California, "World's Most Wired" by Wired Magazine, and an "Electric Airplane Pioneer" by the Discovery Channel, where he has both hosted and been featured numerous times.





Small, Local and Customized: How Makers Will Re-make Manufacturing

Presenter

Duleesha Kulasooriya, Maker Enthusiast and Chief Strategist for the Deloitte Center for the Edge, in discussion with Lyn Jeffrey from Institute for the Future and Richard Kelly from Li &Fung's Fung Academy. The conversation, from the outside looking in, will focus on the impact the Maker Movement is having on the way we think about manufacturing and complexity and how this movement may reorganize the manufacturing landscape.
