Students can check-out Loomo for up to 2 hours per day at the Makerspace – see details below. Loomo has all of the sensors and computing power already – just add your code.
For all questions / clarifications contact the judges at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: we will add details here with time – so the below items are subject to slight changes and additions – though the overall challenge will remain the same.
The judges have final say and participants that are gaming the system in any way will not win. We truly want a robust solution that fairly beats the competition.
 Provide a visitor coming into the front door of the Makerspace with an interesting and engaging tour that explains the key technologies of the Makerspace.
 The tour must occur at a normal walking pace and not lag or seem abnormally slow.
 Loomo must guide the visitor throughout the Makerspace to each of the primary rooms (3D printers, studio, laser cutter, electronics, machine shop, conference rooms, vending area). If a door is closed, Loomo must ask the visitor to open it for them.
 Loomo must be able to answer a few popular questions such as “When is the Makerspace open?”
 Loomo must be able to avoid obstacles and adapt to any changes in the space (e.g. stool in middle of walkway).
 Individual or team can win. We encourage you to form a team though.
 No deadline – first to complete wins.
 Anyone with a valid CoE shop permit can check-out Loomo.
 Loomo can be checked out for 2-hours each day per team (go to the check-out window in the Makerspace). Loom should not be taken outside of the Makerspace or ridden. Try to do most of your work w/out Loomo using the developer tools. Developer tools can be found here.
 Loomo can use QR codes or other signs, beacons, etc. placed in the environment. But first obtain approval from the judges (email@example.com).
 Loomo mas use external computational power (e.g. remote services, microcontrollers, etc.) though first clear it with the judges (firstname.lastname@example.org).
 Demonstration of the tour.
 Documentation + code on how it works. Ability for others to reproduce results and edit code.
