So the time has come for the next MakerFair in Shenzhen, and thanks to the resident of the local Hackspace - there is an opportunity to see how it looked.
We have already reviewed the MakerFair exhibitions that took place in Shenzhen in 2015
and in 2016
( part 2
), the more interesting it is to see what's new.
The photo has an interactive whiteboard, where everyone can leave his mark - almost as a symbol of “make-up” - to popularize technical achievements and self-realization through creativity.
And under the cut - an exoskeleton, swords for training the Jedi, we learn how to walk on water, tailed / fluffy from a kickstarter, and more.
Entrance to the exhibition:
The event was held in November of this year in the territory - Liuxiandong Campus, Shenzhen Polytechnic
. Well, that is, Polytechnic)
Here are the views there in the evenings ...
But back to the exhibition.
Stand familiar to many SeeedStudio
, a company for lovers of electronics, DIY. They helped create the first hackerspace in Shenzhen, and which has more than 200 distributors worldwide:
There are smart houses, and there are smart greenhouses, which are no less interesting for city dwellers, as a hobby, but also as a healthy diet:
But the gift "The Hand of Frankenstein" (who is sad and lonely):
Someone is trying on a pneumatic system for nailing?
And next to try on yourself exoskeleton:
An interesting project is demonstrated by guys from Japan:
For now, note the Rapiro
project on the left (on the table) - a DIY assembled and programmable home robot. That in 2013 they raised £ 75,099 ($ 101,111) on the Kickstarter, out of the claimed £ 20,000. You can print it yourself
on a 3D printer.
But I called the project of an incomprehensible “creature” that fluffy and caudate interesting:
As you know, all ingenious is simple - pets (most) have a need to be petted, and this pleases their owners. But not everyone has pets - the developers from Japan have come up with such a device - so that you can iron (artificial wool, it's clear), and get a response - the tail :)
The project is called QOOBO
. And a couple of weeks ago, they successfully completed the campaign on the kickstarter,
where among the stated ¥ 5,000,000, they collected ¥ 12,360,156 (~ $ 108,892).
Ears-mood (Japanese chip - catgirl), were also presented:
The stand with DIY devices, and the one on the left, is designed to test the reaction :)
For music lovers, the electronic guitar was introduced:
And in the distance, someone tries an electronic violin:
Good music lessons at school :)
"Drummer, rhythm, solo and bass ..."
Of course, DIY game consoles were presented:
From the family of projects (here and the button accordion):
And here are the swords for training the Jedi:
By the way a team from Japan ( Tac.inc
Science was also presented, for example - biology lovers - DIY microscope:
Even the spinning wheels were presented - most likely to lovers of folk art and ethno:
For those who are interested in popularizing robotics among beginners, there was a Kittenbot
On the basis of Scratch, they created an environment for programming uncomplicated robots (the code is translated into Arduino C).
Of course - what a Maker Fair (and hackspace) without a 3D (brutal) printer:
And the “trick” of this 3D printer is probably that, on the basis of one platform, it can also print, and mill, and engrave:
Here are mobile monitoring systems:
No, this is to walk on water :)
And now the stand of the hackspace LAB ZERO
, thanks to the resident of which is targence
, we were able to visit this exhibition.The remaining photos are not included in the post are available on the link to Flickr .
