The LazerEtch is a machine that allows users to create wood burnings of any digital image. A system of microcontrollers and computers processes the image and shifts a board around a stationary laser using motors.
I am exploring how toys and peripherals can become super fatter, interactive intimate clients. I will be exhibiting a hacked Furby which connect to a Meteor.js chat app over the internet and make the Furby ''possessible.''
PCBWeb and OrderPCBs are part of a free design suite for creating and sharing electronics. They're powerful enough for professionals, yet simple enough for first-timers. Come learn beginning-to-end circuit board design.
A physical hardware interface to connect any sensor to any cpu device, such as Mac, PC, Smartphone, iPAD, etc. Advantages: cheap, simple, easy, fun, scientific, includes free software for measurement and gaming.
Make a Theremidi Orchestra out of three DIY electronic instruments - TouchTone (finger synth), Theremini (proximity sensor) and MicroNoise (light depended synth) - and make some proper noise!
EWB-USA's New York Professional Chapter presents real world examples of #tech4dev solutions to developing world problems. Come on by to fly a kite and learn how engineers survived before GoogleEarth! #globaldevelopment
A drone flying competition featuring aerial combat, obstacle courses and other UAV games. Divisions for tiny palm-sized toys up to huge multirotor heavy-lifters, & include both combat and non-combat games.
Uzuki -IoT Sensor Toolkit- helps MAKERS for easy and rapid prototyping using sensor devices. This shield is working with iOS device via Bluetooth Smart tool kit ''Konashi.'' and also with ''Arduino''. FUN for making gadget!!!
UpLocket is not your grandmother's typical locket. We're making 3D printed necklaces which 'magically' load a photo or video on your phone! (It works on any NFC enabled device.) Find us on Kickstarter now!
NYC High School students in the MOUSE Corps technology design program share 4 assistive Legacy Project prototypes - Gap-Assist, Remote Vac, Able Racer & Omni-Palette - All designed in collaboration with United Cerebral Palsy
OpenBCI stands for open-source brain-computer interface (BCI). The OpenBCI Board is an affordable microcontroller that can be used to sample electrical brain activity (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), heart rate (EKG), and more!
We will have a silver box and a similarly scaled model TARDIS on a table, positioned any way the user likes. When a large, chunky switch is thrown, the TARDIS will disappear, reappearing in place of the silver box.
In this talk we will walk through the process of designing a unique musical instrument or interface. We will look at each designer's unique talents and incorporate these into our design, making performing with the instrument easier for the designer. For example, if one is an avid golfer we could incorporate a golf swing as a way to interface with an instrument. We will talk about the first steps of imagination, how to know what sensors to use, figuring out the electronics, and putting our original design together with the electronics. I will also talk about my process and demonstrate several instruments I've made.
The Smomid is a network of handmade instruments that emit light as well as sound, making use of Arduinos, many types of sensors and high powered LEDs. This network also makes use of a robotic instrument stand in performance.
