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.

"Hape is a world-wide leader in designing and manufacturing high quality baby and children's products made from sustainable materials. The eco-friendly company was established in 1986 in Germany by founder and CEO Peter Handstein. Handstein has a knack for toy design. He uncovered and eventually bought Quadrilla, the ""smarty pants"" and Oppenheim Platinum Award winner of wooden marble runs.
Quadrilla is not a one-time build-and-play toy. It's a system of multi-colored blocks u2013 each with its own function u2013 that can be combined with short or long, curved or straight rails that children use to build a "contraption of sorts". The completed structure is a working marble run and the builder is in charge of its design. Quadrilla is the "smarty pants" of marble run systems on the market today. It operates on kinetic, rather than gravitational, energy.
Eager to build and play with Quadrilla and break away from designing, Wilfried Braun, Quadrilla inventory, jumped at the chance to demonstrate how it works at the Hape Quadrilla booth during the World Maker Faire. "

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
Come learn how!
Maker West meets Maker East! Rick and Keith have been working on this project together for a major project in an upcoming issue of MAKE Magazine.
