One of the world’s most popular showcases for inventions and creativity, Maker Faire is making its way down to Singapore on the 25th and 26th June. Tech enthusiasts, crafters, homesteaders, scientists and garage tinkerers are gathering to show off their wonderful inventions and share their ideas on innovation.

There will be tech talks, showcases, forums and presentations by our inventors, where they will share their inspiration, and how innovation and creativity can happen anywhere, from the garage to classrooms and even boardrooms.

So join us at the Intel booth to have a hands-on experience with the following amazing demos:

Developed by Wind River, this smart connected foosball table is fun for all ages. With Intel® Edison and Intel® Galileo inside, you can easily keep score of every foosball game.

Powered by Intel® Edison, PD Loggers presents a wearable 3-sensor based system that can monitor the patient’s gait remotely to aid doctors in determining the severity of Parkinson's Disease (PD), without needing patients to travel down to the clinic for appointments which can present inconveniences.

Get ready to be served by robots. With Intel® Edison and Intel® RealSense™ inside, this project shows how robots can be used to perform useful tasks for humans like surveillance or room delivery in a hotel.

Track your movements with Intel® Edison IoT capabilities using Intel® Edison WiFi service to interface to Lightsaber and Mjolnir's microcontroller system.

Check out some cool innovations that our Nanyang Polytechnic students have created:
• Water Irrigation System - an unsupervised plant watering system allowing user to keep the plant healthy while unattended over a short period of time.
• Air Quality Measurement System – powered by Intel® Edison, this project provides air quality monitoring with an alarm where a user can deploy at any location.
• Safe from Elevator Grip – this smart system aims to eliminate elevator accidents by providing a more sensitive detection of obstacle through minimal enhancement of the existing elevator setup.

Powered by Intel® Edison, Energie Corp presents a client-centred IoT Solution that focuses on energy conservation, as well as helps companies usher in an era of sustainable energy.

This Robot uses the Intel® RealSense™ R200 3D camera to scan its environment, build a map, and detect obstacles, and uses an Intel® Atom™ x5-z8350 quad-core processor on an UP Board from Aaeon running open-source code under ROS and Ubuntu to perform the navigation computations.

How to Get Started

Not a programming wizard? Don’t worry. It's easier than you might expect to create with Intel gear and instructions. 

What you need:

What's a Board?

A development board is a set of circuits you can program from your computer to do specific jobs. For example, the Arduino 101* board is plugged into your computer via a USB cord, and it's equipped with the Intel® Curie™ module, which has embedded sensors that make it perfect for building wearable technology.

See What You Can Create

Try your hand at some of these fantastic projects created with Intel products for Makers.

Track how your board moves and angles, with an easy-to-build orientation visualizer.

Learn how

Don't miss a beat! This project will show you how you can track your heart rate via your smartphone.

Intel Products for Makers

Get the power you need to make whatever you imagine.

Arduino 101* Board Powered by the Intel® Curie­™ Module

This is a brand new board, designed to help new Makers dive in. Although it's offered at an affordable price (starting at $29.99), this board has all the functionality you'll need to learn the basics of programming, electronics, and mechanics. The board features motion-sensing and low-power Bluetooth* technology, making it ideal for wearable projects.
