Projects for the competition from Intel + workshop on wearable electronics in hackspace

    The competition
    next week ends accepting applications for participation in the Intel contest in the field of concepts and devices of wearable electronics - Intel Make it Wearable. The competition’s prize fund is $ 1.3 million. competition website
    Association of Sports Robotics at the Hurispace Neuron site and CMIT Laboratory , will try to teach, answer questions and help implement your projects.
    Workshop hosts:
    Alexey Nikolaev (Intel Russia Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Program Manager)
    Konstantin Kostyuk (President of the Sports Robotics Association)
    Andrey Budnyak (teacher, vice president of the Association of Sports Robotics, participant and winner of many robotics competitions)

    Creative people who want to do something but have no base should come to the workshop.
    If there are already draft ideas for the competition, then it will be possible to talk directly with an Intel representative right on the spot.
    It’s not worth going to advanced electronic engineers and embederas for them it will not be interesting at all, the level of entry is zero.

    The workshop will tell how the Internet of things and wearable electronics are connected / will affect the development of robotics and why wearable electronics is the royal road for artists / designers in IT.

    “Remember everything” 1990, or is it still a project at the Intel contest?

    Under the cut, there are a few details about the workshop (timetable, E-Textile and LilyPad modules) and some videos about the nominee projects (helicopter clock, student brain control, device from Inception, etc.)


    Workshop plan:

    Mega-workshop is free of charge and runs on the same day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
    The number of places is limited by training materials (16 people).
    UPD as the number of applicants exceeded the number of seats added an additional 16 seats - “Additional ticket”. He gives the right to attend the workshop and in case of failure of the owner of the "Entrance Ticket" to take his place.

    10 a.m. Intro - Intel Make it Wearable Contest of Wearable Electronics Concepts and Devices. Says Aleksey Nikolaev - Head of Intel Russia Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Program.
    10:30 a.m. Coffee break and acquaintance.
    11 a.m. Wearable electronics. Sewn in electronics. Overview, concepts and available modules. Says Konstantin Kostyuk - President of the Association of Sports Robotics.
    12:30 a.m. Lunch break.
    13:00. Training course on electronic modules and their use. The practical part is built on Arduino and E-Textile modules.
    18:00 - 22:00. Work on the projects of the participants.

    Video about the modules that you can use in your projects - E-Textile and LilyPad

    LilyPad are arduino-based flash modules and a large number of flash peripherals

    E-Textil - based on conductive threads, namely threads and not soft wire.
    Sew, knit and weave with these threads receiving electrical fabrics and patterns.

    Intel Nominees

    Helicopter watch

    Tracking the brains of students

    Traveling in dreams

    Dosimeter for sunlight

    Smart uniform

    Gesture-kinesthetic interface

    Smart nails

    I hope that finally there will be a domestic EEG like Emotiv, and what kind of gadget would you like to see in the near future?
