Ladies and gentlemen, the self-balancing robot Sogge (middle) is pleased to present the tricks of the amazing horse dogs Foxit (yellow) and Toxit (red). Foxit and Toxit can gallop, wag, bark, eat, jump, detect objects, play music and light up.

All robots are developed by DRG Robotics 

Extenda Bike

NTNUSykkel

The bike will be used as a supplement to strength training, as an exercise unit, only in the open air. The bicycle will be equipped with an auxiliary motor, which is used when the exercise becomes too heavy. This allows for “Jens” to use the bike for other purposes, for instance to and from work.

Bendik has perhaps made the worlds funniest wedding cake stand, and he is bringing it to Maker Faire Trondheim!
The cake stand consists of a number of parts he found here and there; pneumatic valves, profiles, truck horns, stepper motors, etc. All this is controlled by an Arduino.

Check the cake stand yourself in this video.

Beatboxes

Beatbox is not an instrument, but an interactive music experience. The installation consists of pillars that plays different tones, which are controlled wirelessly with two small boxes. The intention is that one or more can interact with the boxes by turning, rotating, shaking and flipping them to experiment with the music being played. What happens when you do what? You will have to figure it out by trying yourself!

Kodeløypa (Code Track)

Department of Computer and Information Science (IDI) and Skolelaboratoriet at NTNU are working to provide a code track for 10th graders. The aim is for young and promising students to experience the excitement and pleasure of working with sensors, data, and programming.
At Trondheim Maker Faire there will be a prototype of the activity so that children aged 10-18 can try out programming through Scratch and connect it to a robots through Arduino. No prior knowledge required!
