e-Nable Italia – Experiments

Faire: Rome
Maker: Energy Family Project APS (e-Nable Italia)
Our community is dedicated to developing and providing free assistive devices for children and adults with limb difference problems. All of our projects are either open source derivatives or released by us (when original creations from our community) as open source. After SwimAble (the device for swimming, 2021) and the Bike Adapter (the device for cycling, 2022), this year we present the new ideas developed by our volunteers: the low-cost robotic hand prototypes and the devices that can help children to practice sports and in their free time, including an evolution of the bike adapters to be able to practice archery, a device that allows children with limb difference problems to play the drums and a tool for makers without 3d engineering skills that dynamically generates custom STL models of assistive devices adapted to the physical and anatomical characteristics of the recipients, to broaden accessibility to these devices.

Experience the harmonious blend of tradition and cutting-edge capabilities at Maker Faire Rome 2023.

3D Printed Clocks

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Steve Peterson
Home: California, United States
I design 3D printed mechanical clocks. All of my designs are intended to be functional clocks with high accuracy and long runtimes. Most are weight driven with runtimes ranging between 8 to 32 days and an accuracy of 1-2 minutes per week. Other designs include motor driven desk clocks and motorized rewind clocks. My designs are published on Thingiverse, Printables, and MyMiniFactory.

Yeastime s.r.l. Startup Innovativa

Faire: Rome
Maker: Yeastime s.r.l. startup innovativa
Yeastime Start Up S.r.l. develops a fermentation 2.0 process using an innovative stimulation cycle applied dynamically to bioreactors. The technology is equipped with sensors aimed at real-time monitoring and integrated with a mechanical wave generator, which can optimize the process by reducing the overall duration by 30 percent. The product, obtained through this technology, will result from an optimal interaction between the target microorganism and the basic ingredients.

The Nerdy Duo

Faire: Hudson Valley
Maker: The Nerdy Duo
Home: New York, United States
The Nerdy Duo, teaching artists Erin Cardullo and Melissa Weiland, love art, science, and technology- and mixing them to create fine, 2D, 3D, and motion art. They'd love to find a new home for some of their art or talk to you about creating your own.


Faire: Trieste
Maker: Gaia Fior
Home: Italy
Perché miniaturizzare quando si può... ingigantire? Questo alla base della decisione di realizzare una versione 9 volte più grande di una scheda Arduino, che permettesse così anche ai bambini o a chi ha più difficoltà di cominciare a dilettarsi con l'elettronica. Ovviamente alla scheda bisognava abbinare dei componenti, tutti rigorosamente 9x e con contatti magnetici, quindi LED, resistenze e qualche sensore gigante da interfacciare anche con Scratch per elettronica oversized e semplificata.

Faire: Rome
Maker: Katerina Koleva
We introduce Brailly, an interactive cube made for visually impaired people of every age, who would like to learn Braille in a fun way. Brailly is a 3D printed cube that consists of a speaker with an audio guide for learning simple words and letters in Braille. Learning Braille happens through a set of individual or collaborative exercises. Users can learn how to “write” in Braille by clicking on buttons, which imitate the Braille alphabet. Learning how to “read” the letters happens through haptic dowels. Our first prototype consists of 3D-printed inside parts made from PLA and an outside shell made from TPU95 material which makes the cube safe for kids. Other important components are six buttons allowing for Braille input and six servo motors which are responsible for the Braille output. During Makers faire we would also like to present our new prototype which has significant improvements such as different motors, smaller size, better sound and quality.
