Maker Faire Detroit is here and it is a great opportunity for everyone in the US Midwest to get involved in making electronics and programming more fun and fulfilling. There will be a number of hands-on tutorial sessions with BeagleBone Black as well as presentations on using BeagleBone Black in 3D printing and electronics education. There will also be several give-aways at the BeagleBoard.org booth for those who show up for the drawings. Throughout the weekend, several people will be presenting their own show-and-tell projects at the booth, so be sure to visit often.
In addition to what is going on at the BeagleBoard.org booth, a number of exhibitors are featuring BeagleBone Black, including several exhibits at the i3 Detroit booth such as Smart Alek Robot Head. Bloomsburg University of Penn will be demonstrating using BeagleBone Black as a low-power hacking device, including remote hacking drones. There will be DIY Pinball, hardware computer vision and ThunderOps Makers will be presenting the ThunderOps Advanced Remote Avatar.
The event is amazing, so be sure to come by this weekend and check it out.
