Physical and Digital Prototyping Tools

MarvelApp: Tools for prototyping apps.

POP by Marvel: POP helps you transform your pen and paper ideas into an interactive iPhone or Android prototype.

InVision: InVision is a prototyping platform that facilitates team collaboration and user feedback gathering.

Adafruit Fingerprint Sensor (751): Secure your project with biometrics - this all-in-one optical fingerprint sensor will make adding fingerprint detection and verification super simple. These modules are typically used in safes - there's a high powered DSP chip that does the image rendering, calculation, feature-finding and searching. Connect to any microcontroller or system with TTL serial, and send packets of data to take photos, detect prints, hash and search. These sensors will be available for use during the Healthcare Makerthon.

Arduino Mega 2560: The MEGA 2560 is designed for more complex projects. With 54 digital I/O pins, 16 analog inputs and a larger space for your sketch it is the recommended board for 3D printers and robotics projects. This gives your projects plenty of room and opportunities. These sensors will be available for use during the Healthcare Makerthon.

TTL Serial JPEG Camera with NTSC: This camera module was designed to be used in security systems and does two main things - it outputs NTSC video and can take snapshots of that video (in color) and transmit them over the TTL serial link. You can snap pictures at 640x480, 320x240 or 160x120 and they're pre-compressed JPEG images which makes them nice and small and easy to store on an SD card. This particular camera also has manually adjustable focus, auto-white-balance, auto-brightness and auto-contrast taken care of for you as well as motion detection built in. These will be available for use during the Healthcare Makerthon.
