Innovation Showcase

The Wednesday evening event is a unique opportunity to casually engage attendees with makers who have their cutting-edge products and devices on display. Partly a mini Maker Faire designed for maker pros, partly a social, networking event in the middle of a packed agenda. Creating an almost magical atmosphere where hardware innovation and creative genius generates spirited ideation.

 

Company About

109 Design

We are a wearable health monitoring technology that combines activity tracking and Bluetooth capabilities with incentivization and goal setting to improve patient compliance for scoliosis braces.

1Sheeld

1Sheeld is a new easily configured shield for Arduino. It is connected to a mobile app that allow the usage of all of Android smartphones’ capabilities such as LCD Screen, Gyroscope, Switches, LEDs, Accelerometer, Magnetometer, GSM, Wi-Fi, GPS …etc. into your Arduino sketch.

AgIC

We developed conductive pens and circuit printer with silver-based conductive ink, which will help you make circuit boards easier.

Automatic Food Slicer Robot

The Automatic Food Slicer is an accessibility robot. It will be able to slice food for those who are unable to due to nerve damage, disease, or disability. It has a similar ease-of-use as a microwave.

Blinkinlabs

BlinkyTile is a DIY light kit. Build your own lamp or decorative piece by soldering together simple tiles, and enjoy the beautiful patterns!

BotFactory

Squink is a personal electronic circuit factory sitting on your desk.

Carbon Origins

Imagine an Arduino board that has WiFi, Bluetooth, 11 degrees motion sensing, 6 degrees environmental sensing, a microSD data logger, a beautiful OLED screen to display data with buttons for navigation, a powerful Arduino-compatible 32-bit microcontroller and built in power management- all that, and smaller than a flash drive! That’s APOLLO. Bundled with a rich software package, APOLLO is designed to be the world’s smallest embedded sensor prototyping platform, derived from a rocket flight computer!

Cornell Cup 2014

The IRIS hand is a semi-autonomous robotic system intended for use in the prosthetic industry. The device utilizes an embedded camera to gather basic shape information of an object, which it then uses to initiate the most appropriate finger pattern for grasping that object. Adaptation of the IRIS system to a prosthesis results in greater ease of use and far greater grip functionality over similar prosthetic devices.

Equity Power

Makers can use these model polar axis tracking solar collectors to develop controllers that not only learn to follow the sun but also log data. They have sun sensors, limit switches and motors that allow tracking both daily and seasonal motion of the sun. It also has sun intensity sensors that enable logging full sky and the energy available directly from the sun. An included PV panel and battery are available for power.

goTenna

 goTenna is a small, rugged device that pairs with your smartphone and enables you to communicate with those near you who also have goTenna, anywhere on the planet regardless of access to cell reception or wifi. goTenna allows you to send and receive texts and share GPS locations on offline maps, without relying on central connectivity. Plus, because goTenna is end-to-end encrypted, it’s not just for when you’re off-grid, but when you want to be.

I Can Make

At I Can Make, we’re building a store full of fun educational things for parents, teachers and children to buy and make on 3D printers, at home or at school.
Simple to assemble models of inspirational objects from museum collections.
Icons of engineering from Stephenson’s Rocket to Spaceship One. The instruction “booklets” are full of educational content, videos, walkthroughs and tutorials.
We’re teaching children the engineering of the future through the engineering of the past.

 Modio

 Modio is the new app that let’s you build and modify incredible creatures and characters then easily print them using a desktop 3D printer. Modio: build, modify and print to PLAY. 

PulsePod

The PulsePod breaks the genetic code of environmental sensing. Designed by global change biologists, the PulsePod is a versatile hub for collecting data from dozens of smart sensors on forestry, agriculture, water use, and fire danger for adaptive management of ecosystems globally. The low cost of the pod allows granular data to inform granular models, using cellular (esp 2G) communications to propagate data for cloud-based analytics and alerts.

Red Ant Laser Company

The ‘Origami’ is the World’s Most Portable Laser Cutter/Etcher!

Rise Robotics

Rise Robotics makes a biologically inspired electro-mechanical muscle called a Cyclone. The Cylclone is an affordable, powerful, and lightweight electric linear actuator.

Robotis

The DARWIN-MINI the first humanoid robot designed with Makers in mind. The robot is also opened sourced to allow for collaboration between makers and the make community to make the robot better and more capable.

TechnoChic

GLANCE is a beautiful wall object that reflects progress in real time. It’s a product as familiar as a clock with the configurability of an app, designed to fit in the home. It can be configured to display fitness tracker progress, sales goals, email inbox counts or anything trackable on the internet. It gives personal data a real world place to influence it’s creator.

Tempo Automation

Rapidly prototype electronic designs on your desk. Tempo Automation presents a desktop pick and place robot which automates the slowest, most distracting, and exspensive step of the electronics prototyping process: surface mount assembly

Voltset

SVoltset is a multimeter that plugs via USB into smart devices and through its intuitive and multifunctional app automates the process of measuring electronics. At our core, we are a software and hardware company that specialize in connected devices and data acquisition and post processing. We take the measuring capabilities of traditional metering tools and connect them with the computing power of smart phones. We believe that smarter tools equal a smarter you and by bringing tools into the 21st century we help people accomplish their tasks faster and more effectively.

WeIO

 WeIO is an innovative open source hardware and software platform for rapid prototyping and creation of wirelessly connected interactive objects using only popular web languages such as HTML5 or Python.With WeIO making connected objects becomes as simple as making websites. WeIO removes a burden of technically complex embedded and system software programming making sophisticated object design easy to prototype, so that users can focus on the design and innovation.
