Purina ONE

Exhibit

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.

EarthMake is a division of Earth Computer Technologies, Inc. a maker of industrial and embedded LCD products. EarthMake's vision is to introduce EarthLCD technology to the Maker Market through special products, application and special end of life deals on LCD displays and electronics to control them.

The arLCD combines the EarthLCD award wining ezLCD smart LCD technology with an Arduino UNO for only $89. We feel that the ability to integrate a color touchscreen GUI into a project will draw more people into the Maker and Arduino marketplaces. While the first product we hope to offer affordable LCD solutions of all kinds to the Maker marketplace.


A Revolution in the Making

Presenter

Traditional retail involves guesswork, forecasting, and often times a lot of wastage in inventory and shipping costs. Makers "going pro" are looking for a new approach to manufacturing that allows for 'made-to-order' merchandise and thus supports local manufacturing rather than the traditional 'pick, pack, and ship' model for e-commerce. Zazzle co-founder Jeff Beaver and partner Klaus Wegener, Co-Founder of Caseable, will share how Zazzle's platform is transforming the commerce experience for customers from a 'buy' model to a 'make' model.


From WikiHouse to WikiFactory

Presenter

In 2011 we launched WikiHouse - an open source construction system that aims to make it possible for anyone to download, CNC-cut & assemble their own house. WikiHouse is now a growing community for digitally fabbed housing with teams in New Zealand, France, Brazil, the US & the UK. In 2012-13 we followed WikiHouse with OpenDesk - open source design furniture made locally. OpenDesk connects digital designs with a network of fabricators able to make on demand, in response to local orders. We are now building Fabbed.com - a full platform for distributed making of design products. We're looking for designers & makers who share our vision.
