Also this year we wanted Maker Faire Rome not to be only a point of arrival for those who exhibited their projects, but a real kick off.
The contest are special initiatives aimed to enhancing and rewarding the best projects on some specific themes.
A public and tangible recognition of the value of the maker projects exhibited during the event.
At the moment, here is the contest:
Make To Care: an award to Makers that help overcoming disability.
Promoted by: Sanofi Genzyme (Gold Partner MFR2020)
The contest: the award stems from the desire to bring out and facilitate the implementation, along with the dissemination, of innovative and useful solutions to meet the real needs of people who have any form of disability, as any sharp decrease in the quality of life due to diseases and/or traumatic events.
Participation: to participate you must submit your project to the Call for Makers for the “Health and quality of life” topic.

- LETIsmart light & voice: two hi-tech solutions to improve the autonomy of the visually impaired, which apply to the classic white stick without affecting its ergonomics and weight: a white light source that pulsates in conditions of poor visibility and a device that provides voice information and allows you to activate a customized acoustic signal to be guided to your destination.
- Tourist Eyes: artificial intelligence, cameras and 5G network are transformed into a personal tourist guide who guides and guides the visuallyimpaired traveler with maximum precision to his points of interest (tourist and otherwise, both indoors and outdoors) helping in moving safely (sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, etc …).
