Bill’s Robots and Vintage Computers

I have been collecting electronics, vintage laptops, and hackable toys for the last year intending to use them in an independent film. The film is no longer being made and it is just too many projects for me to handle right now! I want to sell off my great collection of finds and have some hands-on displays of how to interface toys to microcontrollers.

3D Printing at Mars Settlement

http://makerfaire.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/3d-printing-a-mars-settlement.jpg?w=610When humans eventually settle the Red Planet they will rely heavily on fabrication tools in a lab similar to the hackerspaces and makerlabs wenwork and play in. In extreme environments far away from Earth, future pioneers will use polymer raw materials from Martian air and water to 3D print and hack themselves a home on Mars. The Mars Foundation in conjunction with HI-SEAS and Aleph Objects are now testing some of these concepts with a Lulzbot 3D printer at a prototype Mars base in Hawaii. Join us to and learn about future Mars missions and how your CAD work can directly impact the next generation of space explorers.

Terrarium Design

http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/dd/4e/80/dd4e802fd70708420c3250873b3888f5.jpgLike many inventions, Terrariums were an accidental discovery. A gentleman by the name of Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward was attempting to observe the metamorphosis of an insect in a closed environment. Using a simple glass bottle with some soil and water, he inadvertently sprouted a small fern and grass plant. He was able to keep the plants alive for nearly four years without watering or maintenance.

Fast forward 170 years and you have the modern day terrarium that still retains the exciting chance to observe nature and be surprised by it.

So please feel free to come and make your own little plant world!
