Makerswarm

Exhibit

MakerSwarm is an authoring tool for the Internet of Everything.

It's about building apps across atoms and bits that flow liquidly across the social life of products, environments, and people. MakerSwarm unlocks the power of a trillion-node world so that everyday people; kids, moms, dads, weekend tinkerers, and burgeoning entrepreneurs can build powerful and fun new products and experiences in minutes instead of weeks or months.

MakerSwarm gives the power of X-ray vision to makers, so that they can ""see"" into any of the smart devices around them, from cell phones to TV sets, from connected thermostats to wearable sensors. It's about giving them visual tools so that they can grab ahold of any capability within a device and drag and drop it into a new app that spans across a swarm of your friend's devices in a massively peer-to-peer community.

MakerSwarm lowers the bar for building never-before-seen Internet of Everything experiences and unlocks the power of Trillions so that the best makers can earn rewards in the market of ideas.

Six Amazing Things about Making

Presenter

When we make, play and share, we bring meaning to everyday life, and build cultures together. In this session, Mitch Resnick and David Gauntlett each discuss three objects which show the power of making. They show that making is learning, fosters happiness, and is true social participation. How can we build better opportunities and tools for making? Mitch Resnick is professor and head of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. He was awarded the McGraw Prize in Education 2011. David Gauntlett is professor and co-director of media research at University of Westminster, London. His books include 'Making is Connecting'.
