We have developed a physics-based online virtual world and creator kits that allow anyone to build, share and play high-end social places and games. We have creator stations and a game chair for you to use.
Balloon Pop! is a crowdsourced game combining a carnival classic, amplified with physical computing, a dash of socket-based communication and powered by an air compressor. Participants use smartphones to control on-stage electronics in a coordinated effort to pop balloons in a race against time. Game mechanics are powered by Node.js and Socket.io. Electronic components included Arduino controlled solenoid valves and custom DIY hardware. This fast-paced game can be enjoyed by spectators and participants alike. Educational and fun, game mechanics and technologies are explained as the action unfolds. All code and hardware is 100% open source.
Introducing my Steampunk Rock Golem. He is 12ft tall comprised of mattress foam, pvc pipe, LEDs and lots of other miscellaneous parts- that all came together to make this creature. He is not just for looks, he can walk too!

Visitors to the Purina ONE booth at Maker Faire will have the opportunity to create and invent their own do-it-yourself (DIY) puzzle feeder projects to help enrich the feeding experiences of their cats; gather inspiration from the DIY wall u2013 a gallery of projects created from Purina ONE's cat community; and interact with a fun and shareable area at the booth. What you feed your cat is just as important as HOW you feed your cat. Cats are designed to hunt for their food, and while domestic cats have it much easier they still benefit from the stimulation that comes from the hunt. Incorporating a puzzle feeder in addition to a bowl encourages your cat to work for her food, stimulating her mind and body and helping her live her True Nature.

Want to make plushies of certain video game characters?nHave no pattern drafting experience?nnFear not!
Using a series of tools and scripts, it is possible to algorithmically generate the sewing patterns for your plushie. Starting with a in-game 3D model of the character, there are a variety of industry tools that can be manipulated to flatten the model, into a series of 2D shells. Using a bit code, those 2D shells can be transformed into viable sewing patterns
