Brooks and Region Makerspace

What is a MakerSpace? It is traditionally defined as a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. To put it simply a MakerSpace is a place where anyone is free to make virtually anything.

Hand Crafted iPhone

A project started by a group of enterprising students was completed at the Brooks and Region Makerspace. Sticking to the nature of the space, they made an entire iPhone 6 from scratch. Over a one year time period, they amassed custom parts from around the globe. After writing a custom iOS installer, they dowloaded and installed an official Apple supported operating system. Once the construction was completed, it was virtually indistinguishable from a stock, Apple produces iPhone.

Artificial Intelligence 2048

The smash hit game 2048 climbed the App Store charts months years back. It is a simple tile merger game with basic, logical rules. Using basic rules of coding and AI, a student at the Makerspace designed a bot to play the game. The results were simply spectacular. It smashed the existing world recored (held by a University of Kansas Professor with access to a supercomputer) by over 100 thousand points. Now sitting at 940 thousand points, the new high score was set on a regular iMac. Try the game here, and see if you can beat our AI!
