Fatt at NOMCON

What to Build

Something fun that can be activated by an RFID swipe (we have support for that part).  Some of the current ideas are action figures that will spin for you, a motorized wheel of fortune, a high-five robot hand… the options are limitless. 

Projects should be tabletop size with a footprint that is approximately 18″ x 22″ and as high as is needed to be stable.

Projects are due on-site by June 14th but they can be shipped to the conference center beforehand.
