3D Printing Showcase
The 3DPPVD team would like to share some of their printers, projects, experiments, and experience with everyone.
Maker: 3D Printing Providence

Ansteron Board
I develop Ansteron Board, a visually programmed microcontroller board which can be use in Makers' projects. I will be bringing 4 small projects to the faire to show a bit of what makers can do with Ansteron Board. There is a small self balancing robot, a robot arm built with RC servos to play memory game, a hacked Staple easy button and a digital clock built with LED ring.
Maker: Tim Nguyen

Artist's Book and Prints
I will be showing prints and books that I have made.
Maker: Lara A Henderson

Bass Sticks
Bass Sticks are cigar box guitars - melodic musical instruments - that use digital synthesizers instead of strings!
Maker: Noah Vawter

Bones Couture
I design clothing, jewelry, and accessories that are unique, colorful, and handmade.
Maker: Kayla Lonardo

Circuit Scribe
The Circuit Scribe rollerball pen has conductive silver ink, enabling users to draw functional circuits the same way they would doodle in a sketchbook. Hopefully the Circuit Scribe pen and module kits will allow users to start learning about circuits and inspire creativity among students, makers, artists, designers, and engineers.
Maker: Michael Bell

FIRST LEGO League demonstration
RISF/FLLRI will demonstrate the FIRST LEGO League robotics program. We'll have LEGO NXT and EV3 robots that are programmed to complete tasks on a game table built of LEGO elements. We'll have information on how 6-18 year olds can get involved in FIRST robotics programs, including Junior FIRST LEGO League, FIRST LEGO League and FIRST Tech Challenge.

Homebrew resin-based 3d printer
This is a 3d printer that a not-too-skilled craftsperson can build for just a few hundred dollars. Not a lot of parts, but like any good steampunk-influenced design it has things like sprockets and bicycle chain, plus threaded rods and other fun hardware store stuff.
Maker: Will Ware

Homebrewing Exhibition
Continuing the tradition of Roger Williams and Sgt. Bawlston, come watch members of the Rhode Island Brewing society brew beer right on the streets of Providence! We'd also be happy to answer any questions you have about brewing, drinking, designing beers.
Maker: Rhode Island Brewing Society

Maker: Wayne Losey

Maker: Arvid Tomayko-Peters and Steve Schwartz

Night of the Living Dead Custom Pinball
"Pinventions" is the brainchild of Rhode Island based engineer and artist David Gaskill. The concept of this fledgling hobby-business is to reinvent 60's and 70's era mechanical-electrical pinball machines into totally new designs, piggybacking the original old technology with newer bells and whistles. Past creations include "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out"- an homage to the forming of Bruce Spingsteen and the E Street band in the early 70's;The most recent creation, however, takes this art form to new levels. The "Night of the Living Dead" machine must be seen and heard to be believed. Some of the cool features that are built into the reinvention include a self- contained fog system that fills the cemetery scene in the back glass with an eerie mist. Lighting effects add to the mood. There is also an old style console radio feature (a character in and of itself in the movie) in the center of the play field- equipped with a few surprises- such as an "infinity mirror" portal-like feature, where several key characters make an appearance.
Maker: David Gaskill

Origami Mural
I would like to do a community involvement mural where I teach origami to participants and then the folded objects become part of the mural. The example Photo is one I did in NYC for the howl festival of Ginsburg.
Maker: Sok Song

Paintball Howitzer
See what happens when a pingpong ball full of paint hits a tee shirt at 120 mph! Kite and Rocket Research will be exhibiting an elastic powered launcher that fires pingpong balls filled with paint at approximately 120 mph at plywood targets covered by tee shirts.
Maker: Kite and Rocket Research
