We have developed add-ons aimed at robotics and general purpose projects with the RaspberryPi. At AMMF we will be demoing both an easy to use electrically isolated motor controller and a versatile enclosure. Our controller can accommodate up to 2 motors at 2 amps and interfaces through USB. A very limited number of prototype samples of the hardware will be available for purchase. Additionally, we will have a higher power motor board demo. Reference interface code for our boards can be found at https://bitbucket.org/uis_code/motorcontroller.

Filastruder is an at-home filament making machine. Filament is essentially ink for 3D printers and it can be pretty pricey. The Filastruder takes plastic pellets and turns them into filament for your 3D printer at about 1/10 the cost of regular filament.
Our goal is to make filament less expensive so you can spend more time printing and less time looking for pennies for that next filament order.
Art 120 and their band of creatives will be have their collection of kinetic sculptures out for a ride. Meet the urban art bikers who built these bikes from concept to completion in our workshops. Take an art bike for a spin or shoot some hoops from our basketball bike. We also will pre-register folks for our next workshops and have information about other Art 120 events.

Some of of the things we’ll be doing are:
· 3D Printers
· Compressed Air Rockets – you make, you launch it, you it keep it!
· RaspberrySky – Multiple Launch Rocket System
· Remote control stuff
· Lock Picking
· Computer Security
· Pinewood Derby Timer
· And much more…
The Georgia Tech IEEE Innovation team is a group designed to allow any student to learn new skills by participating in the numerous projects we might have running. Last year, to name just a few, we had decided on bluetooth robots (controllable via cellphone), cellphone chargers (which were used to teach EagleCAD), a batch of robotic teddy bears, and a massive variety of Kinect-based programs.
Through these projects, dozens of students have experienced everything from new programming languages and human-robot interaction, to PCB design and 3D printing. This year we plan to push even further, with new ideas and new creations.
The X-Winder is the World’s first small scale, desktop, affordable filament winder capable of building composite and carbon fiber structural components at a fraction of the cost of of commercially available products.

The Atlanta Hobby Robot Club (A.H.R.C.) is an organization of hobbyists that sprang out of the Atlanta Computer Society in 1981. Our club’s purpose is to support Georgians who build robots by bringing them together in a format where they can exchange ideas.

The Aerospace Design/Build/Fly club at the Georgia Institute of Technology is focused on teaching students the fundamentals of aircraft and flight through the design and building of model airplanes. Founded in 2009, the club participates in international competitions such as AIAA Design-Build-Fly, from which the club takes it’s name, and SAE Aerodesign. These competitions provide an exciting and challenging framework for the students to apply their classroom knowledge and learn critical hands-on lessons to take with them into the job market. As the club grows, members are always expanding into new projects.
