Let’s Make! (A Better World) is the title of the Maker Faire Rome Opening Conference taking place tomorrow October 2 on the stage of Sinopoli Hall at the Auditorium Parco della Musica from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Many of the actors of the Third Industrial Revolution are going to unfold how this is changing our lives forever and if you want to hear it live, book your free ticket now!
The morning session will host, among the others, sci-fi author Cory Doctorow and astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti who, just a few days later, will take off on a long space mission bringing tools made by makers; Massimo Banzi will close the session with a keynote about Arduino manifesto on Internet of Things.

Organized by Science, Innovation and Entrepreneurship Network, a non for profit organization founded in 2011, The First Day of Tomorrow is a conference bringing together the world’s top leaders in technology, research, startup investment, and entrepreneurship to highlight the hottest technologies and startups that are building our TOMORROW.
It’s taking place in Paris on the 18th of April and Massimo Banzi, CEO of Arduino, is giving a keynote together with other 40 cool speakers:
As Fritzing guys pointed recently out on their blog
Codemotion is not just another tech conference where developers and engineers attend to compare tools and argue about what’s best and what’s cool. It is a meeting point for many disciplines, hardware meets software and design in a unique and powerful combination.
We’ll be participating to the event, not only with a workshop on wearables (sorry it’s sold out!), but also with
- People over megahertz - a keynote speech by Massimo Banzi opening the conference on friday the 10th, thanx to MakerFaire Rome
- Makers movement and fashion are getting closer than we think - a panel on saturday the 11th with Sam Muirhead (OneYearOpensource), Hannah Perner-Wilson (Plusea), Mika Satomi (Kobakant) and Zoe Romano exploring how the use of low-cost devices and machines is multiplying possibilities of participation and is transforming the way we approach our garments.

Coderdojo is a global collaboration providing free and open learning to young people, especially in programming technology. Last weekend David Cuartielles from the Arduino team went to Slane Castle in Ireland to make a brief presentation to the CoderDojo conference about the Castilla project and how we are hacking Secondary School education in Spain.

Al periodico appuntamento con l’elettronica amatoriale presso Modena Fiere, che oggi e domani (19-20 Gennaio) ospita Expo Elettronica, i makers e gli hobbysti emiliano-romagnoli non possono rimanere delusi per il calibro degli ospiti in programma. Officine Arduino, assieme ai ragazzi del FabLab di Reggio Emilia, offrono un’occasione unica per confrontarsi con il mondo dei makers e con la prototipazione DIY, grazie a numerose varianti di stampanti 3D esposte e funzionanti, assieme alla possibilità di provare e “toccare con mano” alcune delle novità più interessanti del mondo Arduino, come l’Arduino DUE.
Lo stand del FabLab di Reggio Emilia.
Alcune delle novità più interessanti riguardano i prossimi eventi in programma, fra cui troviamo l’importante “Makre Faire – The European Edition”, che verrà ospitata per la prima volta in Italia nei giorni 3-6 Ottobre 2013 a Roma e che vedrà coinvolta l’intera comunità di makers provenienti da tutta Europa. Fra gli eventi in programma vi saranno conferenze, workshop hands-on e numerosi speech, in aggiunta alla fiera “vera e propria” che si terrà nel week-end.
Per partecipare come espositori, a partire dal 18 Febbraio si aprirà una “Call for makers” alla quale chiunque sia interessato potrà inviare la propria candidatura e i propri progetti, che verranno accuratamente selezionati per costituire il programma delle numerose esposizioni previste. Stay tuned sull’home page della fiera per i prossimi aggiornamenti!
Fra gli imminenti eventi in calendario elenchiamo il prossimo Workshop Base di Arduino che si terrà i giorni 26-27 Gennaio a Reggio Emilia, presso il FabLab “Spazio Gerra”. Le iscrizioni sono ancora aperte, ma i posti ancora disponibili sono limitati! Accorrete numerosi!
We advice most of our readers interested in interaction design & creative coding willing to network in this field to give a look at the Push Conference, held at the end of this month in Munich.
push.conference is a unique two-part event for the interactive field. push.ux connects designers and developers of outstanding user interfaces, while push.inspiration unites creative coders and designers experimenting with innovative technologies.

Hamburg Maker Meeting 2012, which took place last week and involved about 200 visitors and more than 20 exhibitors, has been a fantastic opportunity to meet and share experience regarding several topics, such as 3D printing, hacking, retro gaming and so on. At the Attraktor Makerspace, several projects have been presented and demonstrated by their inventors, among which we highlight a very nice Arduino-based floppy drive organ that has been employed to play the Tetris game theme.
Moreover, among the others events planned for the meeting, a special sneak-preview session allowed all the interested people to get some insights on the new Arduino Due board, released a couple of days ago.
More information can be found on the homepage of the meeting.
On his blog, Stephen Wolfram, worldwide known as the creator of Mathematica (a widespread computational software) and Wolfram Alpha (a knowledge engine), describes his experience at last NY Maker Faire, where he was supposed to give a public talk.
One of his sons, Christopher (13 years old) suggested him a very cool way to improve his talk, by making it much more dynamic with some practical demos. Indeed, after his father’s talk, he reached the stage and started his personal presentation, which involved the use of both Mathematica and Arduino.
After showing how to graphically and interactively present analog readings from an Arduino board, he moved on to show how to control a quadricopter drone just by indicating the path to follow directly from Mathematica. As if it wasn’t enough for a 13-years old boy, several questions arose from the audience, which allowed him to show also how to directly process real-time video coming from the quadricopter with the computational software.
More information can be found here.
As a final remark, it’s always very nice to see what very young boys can do with the availability of right tools that can help their creativity and their imagination.

Desde BricoGeek nos llega la noticia de la celebración de una nueva Barcamp, esta vez en Vigo. La reunión perfecta para cacharrear y debatir entre amigos sobre temas como el Open Hardware, Arduino o impresoras 3D entre otros muchos, y puede que con alguna que otra sorpresa.
Unas jornadas DIY muy interesantes que tendrán lugar en las instalaciones del CFP Daniel Castelao de Vigo en las que Alejandro Taracido presentará a su mítico robot ORUGAS con las últimas novedades añadidas.
Sin duda, un evento al que no se debe faltar!
Planning preliminar (sujeto a cambios):
- Introducción al Open Harwdare
- Orugas: Robot explorador basado en Arduino
- Impresión 3D DIY. Crea objetos en tu casa
- Workshop BricoGeek
