Join Cypress at Maker Faire Bay Area for Innovative Demos, Giveaways and More!
Maker Faire Bay Area kicks off later this month (May 16-17) in San Mateo and we here at Cypress are looking forward to a weekend full of interactive exhibits and creative presentations highlighting the momentum of the Maker Movement and the technologies driving this industry, including the Internet of Things (IoT). Whether a seasoned technologist or an emerging maker, we’ve got something for everyone at the Cypress and Arrow booth #2323 in the Zone 2 Expo Hall.
Heading into this year’s show, we put the call out to makers around the world to design IoT projects using Cypress’ new Bluetooth® Smart PSoC 4 BLE Pioneer Kit. You can get an up close look at the winning project – a homemade electric bike project made from new, obsolete laptop lithium ion batteries, equipped with a commercial dashboard called the Cycle Analyst. This will no doubt inspire you to create your own IoT project and you can get a demo of the latest toolkits to drive your future IoT designs at the booth as well. This includes:
- Arduino™-compatible PSoC development kits
- CapSense™ touch-sensing solutions
- RPiSoc demo
- Arrow electronics demos
- CoRobot demo
- RC Car
See the systems in action, getting hands-on experience and talking with Cypress engineers about your questions and projects.
If you thought the PSoC Pioneer Contest was your only chance to win a cool prize from Cypress, you were wrong! Check out our Nerf™ Blaster Shooting Gallery, where you can test our CySmart™ app by controlling a custom Nerf Blaster Turret Gun for your chance to win a prize.
If you want to test your strategic skills, join our Easter egg hunt. The BLE Easter Egg Hunt challenges participants to use the CySmart mobile app to hunt out PSoC 4 BLE-based beacons on the show floor in plastic Easter eggs. Bring them back to our booth to exchange them for prizes.
We hope to see you there!
