Innovative buoyancy elements for snorkeling, scuba diving and deep sea applications

Faire: Rome
Maker: Rainer Kuth
Problem: During scuba diving and other deep sea / underwater applications common tools like lamps, cameras, knifes, fins, masks, etc. sink fast when accidentally lost, because their density is higher than water. Sportive divers with deep-licenses can dive up to 40m for a short time and tech divers for app. 100m after complex preparation of highly sophisticated equipment and training. Loss of tools is frequent, expensive and dangerous, because sea is deeper than that at most places. Challenge: Manufacturing buoyancy elements + with a density significantly less than water + while these shall withstand high hydraulic pressure + while the buoyancy force should be exactly defined and independent of depth is not trivial. Solution: 3d printing / additive manufacturing using special parameters upon printing and optionally with hybrid processes support making buoyancy elements with individual shape and buoyancy force. With such e.g. a loss of a mask with individual glasses for 1000€ is avoided: the mask will slowly rise to the water surface for save and easy recovery. Making such buoyancy elements is possible with a 3d printer for less than 500€, a free 3d construction software and a free slicing software using special parameters. Contribution: I will show on the booth: + Free design software for buoyancy elements + Free slicing software +

Maker: marcel knotter
Home: zuid holland, Nederland
Laat het verleden en de toekomst samen komen. Retro is the Future! Onderdelen en spullen die normaal naar het grof vuil zouden gaan, worden door mij gebruikt om prototypes te bouwen, of complete machines te bouwen. Hiermee probeer ik oude spellen en oude hardware een nieuw leven te geven. Zo kan de jeugd en de oudere generatie samen genieten van simpele spellen die iedereen kan begrijpen en spelen. Het zorgt letterlijk voor een connectie tussen het oude en het nieuwe. mijn doelstelling is dan ook inspiratie geven aan iedereen die interesse heeft. Het kan door iedereen die handig is als gemakkelijk zelf gemaakt worden. Een leuke hobby, lowbudget en eco vriendelijk entertainment.

Social and Autonomous robots: the MARRtino family

Faire: Rome
Maker: Fabio Ferrarin
Innovators by vocation, making use of the collaboration with the Department of Automatic and Management Computer Engineering of the La Sapienza University of Rome, we work for the growth of the MARRtino family. In the space of a few years the family has expanded and perfected it by creating prototypes of educational and "useful" robots. Everything is open source (hardware and software) so it can be extended in any direction without constraints, an evolutionary robot as we usually define it. Based on ROS, a professional software (ROS) used in the best MARRtino research centers has been implemented and tested to perform many typical Robotics and Artificial Intelligence tasks, such as intelligent navigation, human-robot spoken interaction, image analysis.
