Gli alimenti del futuro: tra biodiversità, economia circolare e agritech

Faire: Rome
Maker: Benedetta Pizziconi
Foods of the future: between biodiversity, circular economy and agritech: An accurate nutritional regimen stands as a pivotal health determinant among all life-ages. Within this context, promoting nutritional biodiversity and foods capable of guaranteeing both productivity and high nutritional value as well as in the context of climate change, represent one of the main challenges of our millennium. Environmental sustainability and waste reduction in the food supply chain are issues consumers are becoming increasingly sensitive to. For years UCBM has been working on those subjects, in particular: i) Identifying better resistant crop varieties to adverse environmental conditions or varieties with peculiar nutritional characteristics. ii) Refining green methods to extract bioactive molecules with high-added value for their potential employment in nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, etc., from secondary raw materials that so far only assumed a low or negative economic value within the supply chain iii) Developing sensor-based and robotic systems to identify the health status of the plant to allow an intervention of greater precision in the various agricultural processes, to optimize the production and the harvesting of the edible parts. At the Maker Faire, some projects, and experimental tools by the research groups in Food and Nutrition Science will be exposed, biomedical measurements and instruments and advanced robotics.

The String and Glue of our World – Understanding Composite Materials

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Ned Patton
Home: California, United States
“The String and Glue of our World” is a book about the science, engineering, history, and art of making things out of composites told in a manner that is approachable, engaging, and entertaining, even for the casual reader. It is not intended to replace or even be a textbook on the subject – there are plenty of those. It is also not intended for the serious practitioner who has lots of experience with composites and needs a reference book, since there are lots of those as well. In other words, you don’t have to be a Ph.D. engineer or scientist to understand the book and appreciate the significance and beauty of composite materials.

Making Math

Faire: Bay Area
Maker: Nonscriptum LLC
Home: California, United States
We have written the books Make:Geometry, Make:Calculus and the upcoming Make:Trigonometry for Make's publishing arm. We will display many 3D printed, paper, and LEGO models that help teach and visualize hands-on math concepts and encourage participants to play with them and think about the concepts. For example, we teach the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus with a handful of 2×2 LEGO bricks and a baseplate. This will be a 'meet the authors' booth, with a chance for people to see the demos in our books live and interact with us.

Aqua&Terra: save the water to save the Earth

Faire: Rome
Maker: ITTS Alessandro Volta di Tivoli - Guidonia
The project aims to optimise water use through the integration of local and remote data. Soil moisture information is used together with weather forecasts to accurately determine when is the best time to irrigate. The system measures the humidity of the soil through the use of a sensor and decides whether to activate irrigation on the basis of the values ​​relating to the last few hours and the weather forecast data, taken through the invocation of web services. The acquired data is sent to a cloud platform for monitoring humidity levels and sensors.

Fotodisgregatore Trituratore per inertizzazione di rifiuti a base plastica

Faire: Trieste
Maker: Xewer Srl
Home: TS, Italy
L’obiettivo deli'invenzione è quello di scomporre, rendere inerti e biodegradabili i rifiuti a base plastica, sfruttando l’azione meccanica, termica e la radiazione solare. E’ noto che la plastica sottoposta a radiazione solare, temperatura e azione meccanica, perde le proprietà molecolari complesse, restituendo catene di molecole molto più semplici e di conseguenza meno dannose per l'ecosistema.

Smart Sensor for Testing Agrifood Quality & Safety at the Point of Care

Faire: Rome
Maker: Sapienza Università di Roma
The Device we present is a Lab-on-Chip. It consists of a system on glass (SoG), where are integrated photosensors for light detection, a thermalization system and sensors for controlling the temperature. The SoG is coupled with a microfluidic system where biological assay occurs and allows the detection of mycotoxins and food pathogens. The system is contained in a portable metallic box. The assays consist of specific recognition elements for the detection of the mycotoxins, which identify the target (mycotoxins) and emits a luminescent signal when the target is present. The luminescent signal is then detected by the photosensors. In the case of food pathogens, the system is able to perform a molecular test: identify a specific DNA sequence of the pathogens, which is amplified and detected by the photosensors following the luminescent signal generated during the DNA amplification. The thermalization system ensures the reactions occurring at the requested temperature.
