We are a School MakerSpace program. We started in September 2014. Our students meet once a week after school to learn about 3D printing, robotics, electronics, and computer programming. Our students were introduced to these topics in the fall and chose a project for our first MakerFaire that they would complete during the spring semester. It has been a very busy year, but has been amazing. We enjoyed showing off what we learned at our MakerFaire and we would like to showcase our projects at the Orlando MakerFaire.
Our Orlando office provides local venues, bars, restaurants, hospitals, theme parks, and retailers the opportunity to have the ultimate digital signage, interactive, secure recharging stations.

“Aging Technology” features a series of three new works of sculpture about our cultures obsession with technology and how we desire the newest items when the old ones work just as well. This is a metaphor for our cultural loss of the wisdom of our elders. Our culture no longer looks to its elders for answers; instead we turn to technology and many times misinformation. Knowledge is no longer passed down from generation to generation and our elders have been tossed aside or abandoned. I use real life elements in my sculptures in an effort to dismantle the ideal of ‘high’ art, in the same way the Neo-Dada artists did in the mid-twentieth century. The works on display will address themes such as technology, ageism, and the American culture. I am influenced by many things that I incorporate into my work, like Nostalgia, 1950’s science fiction and other counter cultural memorabilia and references. I am also influenced by the works of great artists like Robert Rauschenberg, Takashi Murakami, Ed Kienholz and Salvador Dali.

Socrates Preparatory School Our students have spent nearly one year building a digital optical communication system from scratch. By from scratch we mean that no template or instructions were followed. Every step of the process was designed and debugged by our student team. In the photograph you see a Lucite cube with two Arduinos mounted on opposite sides of the cube to the left and right. The Arduino to the left is connected to a laptop where a message is typed and the message characters are transferred to the left Arduio and translated into binary ascii characters. The binary ascii blinks a laser diode at precisely 1/20 sec intervals. The laser diode is immersed in mineral oil inside a plastic tube. The insulating mineral oil filled tube acts like a fiber optic cable transmitting the light pulses through the tube. At the opposite end of the tube a photoresistor is immersed in the mineral oil and detects the light pulses. The second Arduino translates the 7-bit ascii sequence for each character into the original message one character at a time. This is displayed onto a second laptop connected to the Arduino on the right. A major technical problem involves the synchronization of the transmitter pulses with the receiver. The receiver needs to know exactly when to look for a pulse.
This is exhibit would showcase an array of handmade leather goods. All products are constructed and assembled by hand, all the way down to each individual stitch.

The “3d Mechanical Hand – Maker Movement” that was inspired by two strangers (a prop maker from the USA and a carpenter from South Africa) that came together from 10,000 miles apart – to create a prosthetic hand device for a small child in South Africa …and then gave the plans away – for free…so that those in need of the device could make them for themselves or have someone make it for them. What originally started out as a couple of guys who created something to help one child in need…has grown into a world wide movement of tinkerers, engineers, 3D print enthusiasts, occupational therapists, university professors, designers, parents, families, artists, students, teachers and people who just want to make a difference.
