“For our workshop we will teach 3D scanning and printing using an X-Box Kinect, ReconstructMe, and our PrintrBot 3D Printer. The workshop will be led by Mariano Ulibarri, Parachute Factory’s Director, with help from several of our Hacker Scouts. Guests will learn the basics of 3D capture and printing, and have a chance to be scanned in 3D and uploaded to Thingiverse!”
This discussion will start with a stock Roomba and Arduino and cover the eletronic equipment , connections and programming necessary to connect the arduino to the Roomba and control a stock Roomba using an Android bluetooth connection.
