Choosing the right microcontroller for you next project should not be the hardest part of the build. There are so many options, at least one of these boards will fit your needs. MAKE Special Projects Engineer Nick Raymond will share his experience trying to find the right board for the job and give a basic overview about current boards available in the market including: motion controllers, data loggers, and internet connected platforms.
Get up and running with the new board based on the Quark SoC X1000 Application Processor, developed in a collaboration between Arduino and Intel. You'll learn set-up process, how to connect Galileo to your computer, and you'll be ready to begin programming in no time. What's more, you'll learn how to use the Galileo to develop your Arduino-based projects, and you'll explore the features and functionality that make Galileo a standout from microcontrollers on the market today.
Dutch based designer Anouk Wipprecht works in the emerging field of "Fashionable Technology"; a rare combination of sartorial knowhow combined with engineering smarts and style, she has in a very short period created an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way. She creates technological couture; with background in fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction design, she creates systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' systems on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them.
In our 3rd Maker Faire year, we will show new microwave projects as well as other projects that will teach participants about radio wave propagation.rnArduino and other microcontrollers in ham radio

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.
I have two robots: One robot can solve any scrambled Rubik's Cube. The other one can print in English and Braille. It can also write in other languages, making it multilingual printer.
