PR for Hardware Startups and Crowdfunding campaigns

Presenter

Chris Nicholson, a former New York Times reporter and and head of communications at Celery, explains how entrepreneurs, inventors and online merchants can create strong, mutually beneficial relationships with reporters, and tell effective stories.
Celery helps thousands of small, early-stage companies take pre-orders, and we've learned that after crowdfunding, the difference between success and failure is PR and marketing.



Mechanical Intelligence

Presenter

A look at the technology behind Dash, the world's first lightning-fast origami robot that you can build yourself. Our animal-inspired design allows us to offer a fun, high performance robot at a price never before possible.
By using advanced manufacturing techniques and bio-inspired design, we have a completely different approach to robotics that alters the way we prototype, manufacture and design robots.


EyeCheck

Presenter

World Health Organization estimates that 158 million people around the world need prescription to prevent low vision or near blindness. EyeCheck is a low-cost alternative for performing eye exams in areas currently underserved by vision services. The solution uses eccentric photorefraction, employing an image capture device with infrared illumination to capture the light reflected from a patient's eyes. Captured images are processed via custom built software, which provides the type of refractive error and its severity. Currently, the team's software is able to detect refractive error with over ninety percent accuracy.





Solving Rubik’s Cubes and Multilingual Printing Using EV3

Presenter

My robots can solve scrambled Rubik's cubes in any orientation in less than 30 moves under 110 seconds. They are also capable of writing in English, some foreign languages, and Braille making them a multilingual printer. I will bring Rubik's Cube Solver, three Rubik's Cubes, the Lego printer, and paper to the Maker Faire. Participants can scramble Rubik's cubes so that the robots can solve them. They can also print their names using my robots and take the banner home.







3D Printing and the Replica Prop Community

Presenter

A world exists where talented makers create replicas of props seen in film and television. Let Todd Blatt walk you through the creation of over a dozen prop replicas in all made possible by 3D printing. This talk focuses on the recreation of the Sonix Victory 75 radio for the Star Wars SandTrooper Backback, miniature replicas of Han Solo in Carbonite, Green Lantern rings, and many others. Come for a glimpse at how 3D printing is actually used by makers, and the details that people go into when creating movie prop replicas



Makers in the Nursing Unit: Lessons Learned from America’s Amazing MakerNurses

Presenter

We launched MakerNurse last year to find inventive nurses around the country who combine the Maker ethic with their own mission to heal patients. After visiting dozens of nursing units, meeting scores of nurses and patients, and testing dozens of medical hardware hacking components, we are finding we can do more to democratize medical fabrication. Makers, nurses and caregivers are at the forefront of this movement. We outline a dozen examples from Brooklyn, TX, CA, MA, VA, and Montana and the maker caregivers behind them. As we create a community that Makes Health, we look at some ideas on how to make it thrive. All of us can DIY Medtech!
