By | December 4, 2017

The UBORA project was one of the projects selected for the Safe and security for Industry and Healthcare booth of the Department of Ingegneria dell’Informazione of University of Pisa at Maker Faire 2017, in Rome, the largest European event dedicated to makers and innovators. 

For 3 day (December 1st-3rd), thousands of people had visited the large area of Fiera di Roma, where Fablabs, Universities, Companies and Makers presented the state of the art of the DIY activities, and the most recent enabling technologies for crafting and innovating.

In our booth, people learned the potentialities of augmented reality in the surgery room (Vostars Project), how robots will co-work in the next future (Iliad Project), and the importance UMI technologies in teaching STEM (UMI-SCI-ED project), and of course the new tools for collaborative design of medical devices thanks to UBORA.

Visitors had the opportunity to interact, for the first time, with a demo version of the UBORA e-infrastructure, a many students demonstrated interest for the next Design Competition.
