Intrinsyc Software International will be giving away Snapdragon 800 processor based DragonBoardTM. Also, there will be opporunties to order discounted Snapdragon 600 processor based Single Board Computer at the booth. The demos are as follows: 1) Thing Development Kit (TDK): Snapdragon 800 processor based DragongonBoard with TDK adaptor board and Arduino shield, controlled from a tablet via Alljoyn 3) 3D Printed Robot: A robot developed to showcase autonomous robotics capability. This robot has a 3D printed body that is MakerBot compliant. The robot uses VuforiaTM to track and follow a visual target. The robot can also pick up objects and transmit video to a smartphone in tele-op mode. 3) PLCdunio Demo: Show a garage door opener and and a lamp that can be controlled using an Arduino with builtin Powerline Communications (the PLCduino prototype))
Spark + Pebble = hacking the internet of things at Maker Faire Bay Area Pebble was born from hacking. Back in 2008, Eric plugged a Nokia phone display and Bluetooth radio into an Arduino board and our first prototype came to life. Hacking is part of Pebble’s DNA, and is reflected today in the awesome apps made by Pebble developers using our SDK -- from flying an AR Drone to controlling a Tesla. That’s why you’ll find Pebble at Maker Faire Bay Area on May 17 and 18 at the San Mateo Event Center. But we’re not doing it alone. We’re sharing a booth with the wonderful folks at Spark, makers of the Spark Core -- a tiny, Arduino-compatible WiFi development board. The Spark team created an easy-to-use product that allows anyone to connect everyday electronics to the internet over WiFi. We have a lot in common, from our Kickstarter beginnings and passion for hacking to our open platforms and strong developer communities. Spark and Pebble are joining forces at Maker Faire to enable makers and developers to explore new and exciting ideas that connect our two platforms. We believe that, just like the web, the internet of things will only thrive when people collaborate. Join us next weekend in San Mateo for two fun-filled days of hacking on Pebble and Spark Core.
Linino modules are now available: ONE, Freedog, Chiwawa with Collar and Arduino Yun. These boards are based on OpenWRT distribution. Linino provides a fully writable filesystem with package management with GPG signature. dog hunter produces A MIPS GNU/Linux box for Arduino™ and Internet of Everything. Combining the Linux OS with IoE HW + certified WiFi 802.11n connectivity and use OpenWRT and Peer-to-Peer (AllJoyn software framework) to customize your own project. The product hopes to make an open source WiFi home automation seamless and easy to understand for all levels of technology users. The Linino ™ ONE is a MIPS board based on the Atheros AR9331 and the ATmega32u4 (datasheet). The Atheros processor supports Linino, a Linux distribution based on OpenWRT.
