There was also parallel workshops which focused on the Arduino 101 Basics headed by AMA Univeristy and Arduino with IoT handled by the students of Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University in Pampanga who was also the 2nd place winner of the recent IoT Hackathon.

Several projects were showcased during the event including from those who joined the IoT Summit Hackathon last March 4 & 5. Cristopher David of VR Philippines brought their mixed reality robot, while Rizal High School brought Salamander their official entry to the Tagisang Robotics 2014 by DOST and ThinkLab.

RJ Miguel of ThinkLab Pre-Launching SparkLab in partnership with NORDE International

SparkLab, the own makerspace of ThinkLab in partnership with Norde International Distributors was also introduced to the attendees. It will be open to the public on June 15, 2016 and makers could use 3D scanners and printers, laser cutters and CNC machines, and other makerspace equipment.

ThinkLab, a leader in microcontroller education, started the initiative a few years ago when the first celebrated the world event locally in various places such as UP Diliman and an event center in Makati.

The Arduino is an open-source and cross-platform device with the endless capabilities of embedding electronics into mediocre day-to-day tasks and objects into exciting and fantastic projects. Originally based in Italy and founded by Massimo Banzi, his team migrated to the United States and brought their technology but was forced to rebrand globally after disputes with the other Arduino developers. Technology marketed and sold outside the USA are now called Genuino and are still the same with the original Arduino with Banzi’s ideals.

The event was supported by E-Gizmo Mechatronics Central and Circuit-Help Partners Company who gave out some raffle prizes for the participants such as E-Gizmo’s Gizduino 644 Plus, a locally made Arduino, and Circuit-Help’s Arduino products, I am Cardboard PH also raffled two Google Cardboard that made the event more exciting while some new technology from ATEN and DNP was showcased like the ambient light resistant projector screen.
