We are all looking forward to World Maker Faire New York 2014 starting on Saturday! Here is a round-up of ten interesting Raspberry Pi focused exhibits and presentations you can catch out at the Hall of Science venue this weekend!
Exhibit: Raspberry Pi Foundation:
“Making computers, coding and education available to everyone is the mission of the Raspberry Pi Foundation. We’re at Maker Faire to help people take their first steps, showing off the best projects and learning resources.”
NYSCI Auditorium – Sat 2:30pm: What’s Next at Raspberry Pi
“James Adams, Director of Hardware Engineering at Raspberry Pi, in conversation with Make: magazine’s Matt Richardson. Hear about development, applications and implications of the credit-card sized computer.”
Joseph Anand: “Raspberry Pi-controlled Smart Refrigerator helps hack your health with smart lighting to simulate circadian rhythms in fresh produce, and emailing or texting you when vegetables are at their peak nutrition for you to consume.”
Avishay Orpaz: “ASTROGUN is an Asteroid shooting game. The player stands and has to shoot Asteroids that are coming towards him from any direction, before they hit him. A RADAR-like view helps the player locate the asteroids.”
Exhibit: Data Rush
Apon Palanuwech: “Data Rush is an interactive kinetic sculpture that reflects the past, the present, and the future of our data over the internet. Specifically, it alludes to how Silicon Valley now monopolizes and leverages user information.”
Exhibit: Deer Detector in Raspberry PI
Rohan Jinturkar: “Have deer ever been a pesky problem in your yard, eating up your painstakingly-grown plants? If so, this project will assist you by detecting the intruder and receiving an alert on your computer.”
Tommy Mintz: “The Portable Automated Digital Photo Collage (P-ADPC) is an interactive art installation that generates collage using a Rasperry Pi computer and camera, and a small Python program.”
Exhibit: Portable Pi Theater
Andrew Rosenkilde: “Using your hand as a mouse, you can control your own personal XBMC theater comprised of a Raspberry Pi running RaspBMC and a pair of video glasses.”
Fiveninjas: “Slice is an open source media player with a Raspberry Pi compute module at it’s heart. It will play back just about any video format, display photos, play music and even act as an Airplay receiver.”
Exhibit: The Raspberry Heights Workshop
Ron Callahan: “The Raspberry Heights Workshop is a project based class for young makers aged 6-10 where students learn computer basics, UNIX commands, Scratch programming and physical computing (interfacing) on the Raspberry Pi.”
