Big news this year for the IV edition of Makers Faire Rome to be held October 14th to 16th in the spaces of Fiera di Roma.
Apart from the 100K prize for the best project, this year in addition to the classic call for makers, the organizers have decided to support specific call in collaboration with projects and organizations to explore makers and new technologies hot topics. Casa Jasmina has also made ??its contribution with Maker Faire Home: a call for residencies in which we invited designers, artists and makers to submit their ideas and have the opportunity to spend a week at Casa Jasmina. Flanked by Fablab Torino team , Arduino.cc-Genuino and Casa Jasmina, the selected projects will be developed and prototyped.
During Maker Faire Roma Casa Jasmina will have a 100 square meters space in which will show not only the selected projects, but even the best projects in line with the principles of Casa Jasmina.
But let’s get to our Maker Faire Home, the call for residency : we had more than 30 application and select the best ideas was difficult for the quality of the projects submitted.
The jury headed by Bruce Sterling and Jasmina Tešanovi? has finally selected 7 projects:
1. Hands(H)ome | Giorgia Sperandio
2. Snail Box | Silvia Galfo, Riccardo Agosto, Samuele Baruzzi, Daniele Bertoglio, Ettore Fassino
3. Bizmo | Opendesk
4. Daisy | Valentina Lapolla

6. Il Guastafeste | Ivan Iovine
7. Mooor | Fabia Ciccone, Samuele Miatello, Marco Piscopo
8. Smog Bazooka | Jacob Boast (with reserve)
The jury tried to focus on some key points for the selection looking for topics closed to Casa Jasmina researchs such as privacy , interfaces and simplification. Next step, will be inviting our winners at Casa Jasmina and prototype their ideas.It promises to be a major challenge…stay tuned for news.
