Intel has officially announced to demonstrate a diverse range of development modules at this year’s Maker Faire Bay Area from May 19 to May 21, 2017. The demonstrations will include a variety of Intel modules ranging from Intel Joule, which is targeted at IoT developers and entrepreneurs, to Intel Edison, which is the inventor module. Besides, the entry level Arduino 101 module powered by Intel Curie will also be displayed, particularly for the beginners and classroom educators.
There will be more than 12 interactive demo stations at the Faire showcasing Intel’s growing and diverse portfolio of maker and IoT developer platforms so as to encourage the enthusiasts.

The exhibits will mainly include the following:
• Silicon Valley innovator Megabots, debuting its Mk III Mech, augmented with the Intel® Joule™ compute module and Intel® RealSense™.
• Industry leader Arduino, a feature in STEM education with CTC kits to make coding in the classroom easy and fun.
• The interactive jumbo block city designed by Makerologist, where visitors can assemble giant blocks to power a San Francisco city skyline, activating the lights and sounds of the city, even summoning the infamous fog — all powered by an Arduino 101*.
• Drone activations from ProfiCNC, featuring the PixHawk2 flight controller powered by Intel®.
• Los Angeles-based Aerial Media Production house LA Drone, featuring the LAD Dunk Drone and LAD Virtual Drone activation.
In addition, visitors can also interact with a selection of Intel® Joule™-powered robots from Maker Collider. They can even participate in hands-on activities using Arduino 101* from MakeCrate, teaching the principles of electronics, engineering and coding. This would help the inquisitive young minds to learn how to build and code circuits.
Intel expands the boundaries of technology to make the most amazing experiences possible.
