Cemetech Going to World Maker Faire 2016 for 5th Year
Published by KermMartian on September 26, 2016 at 12:17:41 PM CST | Discuss this article (7)

For the past four years (2012 recap, 2013 recap, 2014 recap, 2015 recap), Cemetech has been showing off programming and hardware hacking with graphing calculators at World Maker Faire in New York City. This September, we'll be reprising our role once more, presenting our latest programming instruction and hardware hacks at World Maker Faire 2016. Held in Flushing Meadow Park next to the New York Hall of Science the weekend of October 1st and 2nd, the Faire will hold the latest and greatest in DIY hacking. This will be the Faire's seventh year, and each year that we've attended, it has grown in popularity, attendance, and most importantly, the quality and variety of projects displayed. We have been brainstorming our plans for the Faire, and our team has begun building the various displays we'll need for the occasion. We hope you'll come visit our booth if you're in New York at the beginning of October, and with less than a week left until the Faire, we have our work cut out for us to complete our preparations.

Among the many things we plan to display this year at Maker Faire:
  • GPS demo: A hacked-up version of the GPS for graphing calculators project.
  • Game Boy camera demo: The Gameboy camera + TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition project, properly calibrated for sunlight.
  • Whack-a-Mole: Built with a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, a TI MSP432 Launchpad, and lots of RGB LEDs and light sensors, the Whack-a-Mole project was a hit at World Maker Faire 2015 and T^3 2016.
  • Learn to Program demo: A giant calculator emulator, with key entry from a real TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition calculator. Aims to teach visitors to write a simple guessing game in 60 seconds.
  • Simplified networking demo: four TI-83 Plus calculators connected via CALCnet, running the Flourish demo.
  • Interactive calculators for games: a TI-84 Plus CE, TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, TI-84 Plus Silver Edition, and if any of them are still working, a Casio Prizm, with games and other programs loaded.
  • Sound demo: A TI-84 Plus Silver Edition with mobileTunes and songs by Alec "qazz42" Szigeti and Thomas "elfprince13" Dickerson, plus my floppy drive music with a TI-83 Plus project.
  • Calculator ECG: An ECG built with an Arduino and a TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition, and if time permits, the TI-Innovator Hub.

We look forward to seeing you at the Faire, or if you can't make it this year, to bringing you updates here on Cemetech, on our Twitter feed, and on our Facebook page.
