I had a great time taking part in the Bicultural Day School’s Maker Faire.
The fair organizers and volunteers did a great job of transforming the grounds of this Jewish day school into an event that rivaled some of the more-established maker events I’ve attended.
I was really impressed with a couple of high school students I met there, who created a smart refrigerator. With their project, Moms can actually check the contents of their refregerators on their cellphones from the supermarket (via WiFi camera). They also had this pressure sensor in it that shows if shoppers needed to buy more milk. The coolest part about it was that it has this turntable in it (which the users could operate remotely), ensuring that Moms could see everything in the fridge.
These guys want to make a modular system that can be implemented in any refregerator (very smart!!!). When they take this product to market, I will be their first customer!
Thanks to Adrianne for inviting me. And also thanks to Ruthie, Emma and the rest of the student council, who organized the mobs of kids who lined up to ride the electric skateboard!!!
