Treatment

The 2015 European edition of the Maker Faire featured more than 600 makers from over 65 countries. Several students from Rome's Sapienza university, the largest university in Europe, showcased their inventions along students from high schools, international universities but also experienced inventors and non-profit organizations.

Among the inventions showcased was InMoov's, an French-American project that created the first open source 3D printable life-size robot. The Faire, divided in themed pavilions among others, featured innovative biomedicine, fashion, food, humanitarian and sustainability projects. The visitors to this "city of the future" also had the opportunity to attend workshops, conferences and live performances.

The Faire counted 131 dates in 2014 and has showed its exhibitors' inventions to more than 1,5 million people since 2006.

"This all began with just the hand of the robot here. I created this hand at a time when there weren't any printed by 3D printers. I worked on a project on prosthetics. That is what launched all the projects that we know of: Robohand and Enable Hero. It created a whole new generation of possibilities regarding prosthetics."

"90% of living beings, children, who die within the first 5 days of life, in certain countries, die because they don’t have a simple thing such as an incubator. So we told ourselves “Why with all these new technologies, a company, an initiative, reality that talks about future, we don’t aim at the future, which gives life and possibilities to these kids? So we created the first in the world 3D printed incubator."
