World Maker Faire New York 2014 – Raspberry Pi Round-up! @makerfaire #makerfaire #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi


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.”


Exhibit: A Smart Fridge that texts you ”Eat your veggies”

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.”
