How to Make Robots, Drones and Superhero Costumes

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

RSVP Required - Want to learn how to build your own robot or real-life superhero costume that works? What about a camera that superimposes a mustache on your face?

The co-founders of BeagleBone, a credit-card sized Linux computer that provides laptop-like performance and expandability without the expense or noise of desktops, and BeagleBoard.org, an active open-source community for hobbyists, makers and DIYers that averages 50,000 hits per week, will lead an interactive workshop about how to build cool hardware using BeagleBone. They will showcase how current developers leverage the open-source platform to create innovative products such as an underwater robot, a 3D printer, BeagleBone mustache camera, a real-life superhero costume sensor-equipped platforms that make your life easier and a camera that spits out descriptions of a moment instead of the image. They will also provide key insight and tips on how to develop cool hardware using software like Android and Ubuntu and how to take your cool project and transform it into a prototype that can be taken to market.
Basic electronics and programming knowledge is desired, but not strictly required. Familiarity with tools like Arduino would be especially useful.
What to Bring:
Attendees should bring their own laptops that run Windows, Linux or Mac OS X.
