Orlando Maker Faire Info

Want to find out more about that cool project, person or topic you saw, met or learned about at Maker Faire? Here's more info on these:

ORMaC is our mascot and team-built robot, shown in our logo, and in these pics and build plans. He was built by a team of us, led by Jim, with a lot of work provided by Rick, Steve, Neil & Kevin.

Jim Stana's company, provides 3D printing services. Jim shared some of his sample prints (both successes and failures) at Maker Faire, along with some raft he hopes to recycle. He shares his 3D printing experiences and advice at our meetings. The content of his 3D printing talks are available in our files section.

Kevin Hines, founder of Orlando Robotics & Makers Club taught us about flying RC model aircraft via FPV (First Person View), i.e., via live wireless video from the cockpit of the model aircraft. FPV flying video: and FPV driving a ground robot: Kevin has also shared an introduction to building a basic robot, RC controllers, and demonstrated some of the robots you may have seen at Maker Faire.

Neil, of VEI Systems displayed these two projects:
1. Race-Car Simulator with the real Gauges. More info at: Race-Car Simulator
2. Robotic Workcell Wire Game, with all of the PC-side software done by Richard of Circuits For Fun. More info at: RW Wire Game

Richard Wardlow's company, Circuits For Fun makes circuits for, well, fun. Richard brought his retro wind up digital music box and a motion activated sound effect box.
