This year the Java Hub has more maker’s projects than ever before! Stop by to discover innovative projects but also to chat with their creators who are all renowned developers. Most of them are Java champions, as well.
Mark Heckler created the portable, self-powering, cloud-connected Renewable Energy (RE) system, an IoT system monitors renewable energy power production, which is in turn powered by the RE system itself. It is built using Java SE Embedded and a cloud platform, and runs on a Raspberry Pi Model B system on a chip (SoC) connected to a photovoltaic and a turbine.
Vinicius Senger demonstrates how to use Intel RealSense, a sensitive camera, to recognize hands, face expression, short movements and then convert it to network requests that control things like relays and Philips Hue wireless lamps: you can control your house using your smile! And to make it even more fun, we developed a Java Processing Sketch that can convert musical notes to MQTT messages that also controls lamps and colors.
Toni Epple created Java-powered Duke embroidery using DukeScript. With his application, he can create new designs that the sewing machine can read. His program was built with Java and DukeScript, a new technology to create cross-platform mobile, desktop and web applications.
Hendrik Ebbers from Canoo built the JavaOne voting machine. Attendees can vote on the sessions they attend. The voting machine was built with Java SE Embedded on Raspberry Pi, server-side Java backend, analytic software and runs on Oracle Application Container Cloud Service.
