Taking a look at the darker and more eccentric mix of makers, hobbyists and Industrialist who pushing the boundaries of technology, materials and the mind to make their wonderful ideas a reality. This presentation will cover 5-10 case studies, all of which will cover stories from the maker community who are using exotic materials, technologies to make ingenious, eccentric & impossible contraptions
What do you really, really want to do in your life for you and society? This question accompanies us since 2013 on our trips to places of sustainable lifestyles in Europe, Mexico, Ethiopia... Come and join this adventure.
How can I make my life more sustainable? Have a glimpse into the world of do-it-yourself construction, ecological buildings, permaculture and self-supply. In the greenskills-course you can learn about all that in a combination of theory and practice.
Self building of sustainable buildings in the city was until recently considered a barely realistic idea. The purpose of the livinglab tBASE is to explore and promote the manifold requirements for self-empowerment in housing.
urban living and subsistance farming in a selfbuilt, natural community space? We took the first step toward this dream by building a prototype tinyhouse, together with a group of enthusiastic people, with vertical garden and degradable materials.
The EU project FabLabNet connects FabLabs in central Europe for unlocking their innovation capacity. Communities of people, Business enterprises, Education system are stimulated to innovate by unprecedented Project Pilot Actions.
In this talk I am telling the story of how I became a maker in the first Bulgarian FabLab - SmartFabLab. How I was inspired by my kids to start making and inventing learning materials and games for them and how this grew into an Open Design business.
The challenges of transforming a small start-up into a big company with hundreds of employees. The future of FDM printing and how the Original Prusa i3 MK3 pushes the technology forward. And why staying open source matters.
Touchscreens, 3D cameras, interactive mirrors, smart phones, augmented reality – computers interact with us in numerous ways. What are the current challenges, advantages, trends? And how does the technology work?
In this edition of VRVienna, Markus will talk about possibilities of bringing and using biofeedback signals in virtual reality environments. He will present his two most recent interactive VR installations 'Self Observation' and 'Inneraction.' These installations aim to enable individuals to reflect and observe their physiologies in an educational and creative context using biofeedback interaction.
In this VRVienna Meetup, Christian will present some insights into unconventional AR projects developed at Wetouch during the last years. The talk will cover AR using large displays for product promotion, web-based AR and a mixed-reality game.
At this Meetup, he will present his latest AR project that makes it easy and fast for people with no programming skills who deal with construction to augment their clients' future homes and improve their sales experience in the process.
At this VRVienna Meetup, she will ask us the following question: What is Augmented Reality Art and how it will change the way art is created and consumed? And she will help us answer this question by presenting Artivive as an AR art tool trough some examples from their projects from around the world.
Managing a community workshop, a shared office space or a laboratory at school is a lot of work. Fabman simplifies all your day-to-day tasks, takes care of billing and payments and lets users book machines and rooms—so you can focus more on your community and growing your business.
The digital revolution is changing not only business models but entire job profiles.Will there still be sellers, taxi drivers or accountants in the future?

Kiddo is an online platform, where private individuals buy and sell goods they don't need anymore and where we do all the delivery. At Maker Faire we want to present our prototype and emphasize the importance of sustainable e-commerce solutions.
Come and listen: What’s that sound? We all know it’s possible to 3D print houses, small pieces made of plastic and also prostheses. But did you know, that we’re also able to make music with a 3D printer? You’re invited to our first 3D printing concert!
In the project Green INSTRUCT alchemia nova develops a modular façade element made mainly from construction and demolition waste. Plants integrated in these elements are used to treat wastewater and for rainwater management.
I will present 3 practical Raspberry Pi projects that can help an absolute beginner programmer get over the difficult starting phase in the world of programming.
As part of a research project at the Vienna University of Technology, the Vivihouse team has intensively explored the possibilities of self-construction in urban environments. This presentation will give at first an overview about the culture of self-construction, intentional co-living projects and Fablabs. Furthermore, insights into multi-storey timber construction and the opportunities of using ecological and sustainable materials in DIY architecture will be shown.
Vivihouse is a modular system with which up to 6 storeys can be built ecologically and economically in self-construction. In this presentation you will learn about its origins, how it functions, what principles it is based on and what you can expect from it in the future.
Herbert Gruber from the Austrian Network for Straw Bale Network (asbn) shows us a whole series of self-constructed projects in which the focus is on do-it-yourself construction in guided workshops as well as the efficient use of these materials in ecological architecture.
OpenMaker is an international project funded by Horizon 2020. Its goal is to link manufacturing companies and innovators. The activities to connect them take place parallely in four EU countries, with the project being the most successful in Slovakia.
The construction industry must become more productive & automated. By 2100, 11.2 billion people will live on earth, 85% of them in urban environments. Time and cost will have to shrink significantly. 3D printing is one solution; however, not all available technical approaches will prevail.
You create something amazing. It could change the world... What's next? We show you: - how to develop your idea ready for series production. - how to launch your product in the market. And we have secret tips for production hell!
In a presentation overviewing collaborative and independent experiments using knit-patterning software as an artisanal tool for elaborating surface design, Veronika Persché will show her recent works called "Trikografie".
Taking a look at the eclectic mix of makers, hobbyists and Industrialist who are converting their passion and dreams into dollars. This presentation will cover 5-10 case studies, all of which will cover stories from our community who are using exotic materials, technologies to solve problems most of use would not consider.
Even without a license many things can be built in and with radio - this especially applies to receivers and antennas. However, some can also build sending stations. The lecture gives a brief outline of what is possible and allowed.
There are now many versions of the Raspberry Pi, as well as a wide selection of accessories. The lecture introduces the differences between the models and their applications. It also gives an overview of the software distributions and hints, what is needed to start with the Pi.
