Having started with Fab Lab Tulsa learning various manufacturing and prototyping processes we created BNBRockets. We produce and sell hobby model rocket kits in Mounds Oklahoma.

Airplane simulator

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Jeff, Dave's, & Michaels crazy Fabrications
Home: California, United States
We built a home built airplane and it flies and we have a great time with it. But as a kid I could never get close to airplanes every time I went to the airport they would send me away. So I want to bring the airplane to the kids I want to let them get inside of it, touch it and digitally flight with the simulator we installed inside of it. I want to inspire future Generations.

SE L’ACQUA C’È NOI LA TROVIAMO – IF THERE IS WATER WE WILL FIND IT

Faire: Rome
Maker: hydrohunter di Tamburrino Daniela
 
Hydrohunter's future plan is to be able to solve the drought problem. Also help the small farmer who does not have a large amount of money to invest in a water research project. Report whether there is an aquifer on your land, whether this water resource is convenient or not. That is, the risk-benefit ratio is valid for designing an artesian well.

RoboButts by Project40

Faire: Rome
Maker: Denis Oliviero
 
RoboButts is a robot equipped with a robotic arm whose purpose is to collect butts. What we are presenting is the first working prototype of a project whose purpose is to be implanted in urban cleaning systems. Normally it takes about 30 years to dispel a stub but with our project we want to intervene immediately on this phenomenon. The robot is now controlled with the PC's keyboard but we are working on an AI to detect the cigarette butts and to make the robot completely autonomous

USE OF AI FOR THE MAPPING OF AGRI-ENVIRONMENTAL XENBIOTIC CONTAMINATION USING TERRITORIAL MICRO-SAMPLING CARRIED OUT BY BEES

Faire: Rome
Maker: FOSAN ETS
 
Bees play a fundamental role in ecosystems and are present throughout the territory (at our latitude). The bee carries out its collection and pollination activity in a radius ranging between 2 and 10 km, and is attracted only by plants and clean water, avoiding contact with any waste and/or waste material. Every day, on average, a worker bee visits up to 7,000 flowers, fulfilling its very important role for the ecosystem. Any xenobiotic contamination present in the materials collected by bees and derived products are representative of the contamination of the flora and surface waters of the area where the hive is located. Fosan is starting the creation of a mapping of sentinel hives located throughout the country, in order to monitor the conditions of environmental risk from xenobiotic contamination. The analytical data referring to the samples taken in the various "sentinel hives" are processed with AI techniques to identify level curves of xenobiotic contamination and related hotspots, and the presumed connections with human activities. With AI, the presumed correlations between the recorded anthropic activities and the levels of contamination of the hive products are identified.

Pollen Sprayer

Faire: Rome
Maker: IISS “Ven. Ignazio Capizzi” - Bronte ( CT)
 
The Pollen Sprayer is a particular electronic tank, equipped with nebulizers, which allows you to carry out the artificial pollination of plants with the aid of a drone. Designed for the pistachio plant, it can be used for any fruit tree in order to improve fruit setting and increase production. What makes the Pollen Sprayer unique is the fact that it can be adapted to any drone. In fact, given the high cost, the purchase of specific agricultural drones is not accessible to everyone.

Old game New game

Faire: Rome
Maker: Liceo Scientifico Alessandro Volta di Foggia
 
Why throw away old toys such as radio-controlled cars, animated puppets, globes, electronic games, etc. when can you indulge yourself in transforming them into fun and creative robotic toys? This provides for the "Old game New game" project. Visitors can either play with the toys made by the students of the Volta high school in Foggia, or try their hand directly at building them, through laboratory activities organized by the high school students themselves.

A Talk on Stark Drones: Changing the Way the World Communicates

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Andrew Kamal
Home: Michigan, United States
Stark Drones is an emerging startup with an intellectually diverse team of talent aiming to tackle some of the world's toughest problems. One of those problems involves the sustainability and environmental friendliness of cubesat and satellite deployment. Andrew believes modern day Aerostats and giant balloons can be the future of sustainable, cost-effective, low earth orbit deployments. Stark Drones is becoming a minor player in the Internet Balloon space and working on really disrupting the industry.

R/C Sci-Fi stuff

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Adam Woodworth
Home: California, United States
I build all sorts of remote control versions of my favorite toys and sci-fi vehicles from growing up. Most fly, but some are based around cars, walkers, boats, and a few submarines. The fun for me is making stuff come off that page or screen and into life. Most of my builds are small, and use common materials. I like to solve the weird aerodynamics problems of these odd flying shapes.

Water Sampling Drone, campionamento delle acque.

Faire: Rome
Maker: IIS Marconi Galletti Einaudi Domodossola
 
Water Sampling Drone is an automatic surface water sampling system based on the STM32 microcontroller. The improved collection system allows you to manage multiple samplings during a single mission and thanks to a multi-parameter platform (pH, Temperature, Dissolved Oxygen, Conductivity, solid state detector for muon measurement) data on the quality of the water for each withdrawal point. The collected water is then stored in special test tubes and can be used for subsequent chemical-biological analyzes in the laboratory. The system is equipped with a GPS independent from the drone control one to allow the replicability of the sampling and the georeferencing of the data: the coordinates and the acquired data are memorized on a micro-SD and simultaneously sent via radio to a computer on the ground.

Cultivate in space!

Faire: Rome
Maker: Università degli Studi di Genova
 
Space V is a spin-off of the University of Genoa; it owns the international patents of the “Adaptive Vertical Farm” architecture, which holds the promise of greatest efficiency in producing fresh vegetable food in space settlements. The distinctive feature of the adaptive greenhouse is its capability of progressively moving the distance between the cultivation shelves of the vertical farm according to the level of plants growth, maintaining distinct microclimates for each shelf, thus maximizing the production yield per unit volume and unit time, reducing the overall energy usage.
