Make Omaha is a FREE family friendly, innovation and technology showcase celebrating local tech-driven makers, inventors and businesses who are using state-of-the-art tools in their work.
Meet Matt Steele
Introduce Yourself! – Who are you and what do you do for fun/work/education, etc?
I am a programmer and tinkerer. I like making silly software and glitchy hardware.
What do you make?
Wherever there’s a silly device with Bluetooth, you’ll find me trying to hack around on it
What are you planning to show at Make Omaha?
I’ve built Flappy Bike! It’s a game that uses a bicycle as its controller. The faster you pedal, the higher you go! Try to avoid the pipes and don’t wear yourself out 🙂
What are you looking forward to seeing at Make Omaha from other participants?
I love seeing everyone’s passions on display. Last year’s homemade welding device was particularly awesome!
What tech/maker-type stuff are you interested in getting in the future?
I’m really excited about the new Raspberry Pis; they’re getting really cheap and really powerful. As prices go down, the only limit is your imagination.
Anything else you’d like to add?
